Imran Hosein was born on the Caribbean island of Trinidad in 1942 from parents whose ancestors had migrated as indentured labourers from India. He worked for several years as a Foreign Service Officer in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. He served as Principal of the Aleemiyah Institute of Islamic Studies in Karachi as well as Imam at Masjid Dar al-Qur'an in Long Island, New York. He also led the weekly Jumu'ah prayers and delivered the sermon at the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan once a month for ten years.[4]

He has traveled extensively around the world on Islamic lecture tours since graduating from the Aleemiyah Institute of Islamic Studies in 1971 at age 29. He has written more than a dozen books on Islam.[5][6]

Early life

Imran Hosein got inspired by a visiting scholar in his teens Moulana Dr. Fazlur Rahman Ansari from Pakistan so much so that he decided to go to Pakistan for studying in Aleemiyah Institute of Islamic Studies in Karachi where Dr. Fazlur Rahman Ansari was a principal.

He mastered his studies in both Islam and contemporary modern western world.

Correspondence with an American arsonist

In January 2018 a young former student at St. Catherine University, in Minneapolis, said she set several fires on campus to bring the kind of violence to the American heartland that she believed America's Armed Forces were delivering in what she called "muslim lands".[7] American prosecutors found correspondence between her and Hosein, which they claimed had guided her radicalization.
