Shaykh Faraz Rabbani recently blogged his departure from SunniPath:
Due to irreconcilable differences, I’m no longer associated with SunniPath in any way (as of early May 2008). I do not answer questions there, nor do I teach any courses there.
In my honest and humble upon, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani = SunniPath. With him gone, SunniPath will be different. Who are the other fulltime scholars of SunniPath? I mean I can’t think of any of the top of my head sadly. I’d have to go to their website and check the listings. I remember getting many emails from SunniPath listing the courses and almost everytime Sh. Faraz Rabbani’s name was on 3/4’s of the courses. The popularity of Sh. Faraz and SunniPath were a combined effort and they both were branded together.
For example you have Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and Imam Zaid Shakir who are synonymous to Zaytuna Institute. Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef and Shaykh Yasir Qadhi who are synonymous to Al-Maghrib Institute. Shaykh Faraz Rabbani was synonymous to SunniPath but as you can see I will have to rid that thought from my mind.
It’s sad to hear this about SunniPath’s booting of Sh. Faraz and/or vice versa. Sh. Faraz said it was due to “irreconcilable differences”. My vocabulary is extremely low (May Allah increase it!), but to dumb it down for people like myself, that basically means SunniPath was no longer feelin’ Sh. Faraz and/or vice versa. They weren’t compatible. Different understanding? Different beliefs? Well, we won’t really know. We only know that it was “irreconcilable differences”.
May Allah (swt) give success to all efforts that is pleasing to Allah. Ameen!
