Sidi Musa Furber

Sidi Musa Furber was born in Massachusetts and raised in Portland, Oregon. He majored in linguistics at Portland State University, with an emphasis on computational linguistics and cognitive science, a major that required him to study a non-Indo-European language. As good fortune would have it, Arabic was the only class that fit in his schedule at the time, thus starting him off on what eventually would become a serious and personal study of the Quran and Islam.

Sidi Musa embraced Islam and shortly thereafter embarked on a path of learning. While still a student in Portland, he studied Shafi’i fiqh with a scholar who was in Portland at the time. After graduating from college, Sidi Musa went to Damascus to further his Arabic studies. After a one-year return to the U.S., he again traveled to Damascus where he completed an intensive four-year study of the traditional sciences of Islam (hadith, Quran, fiqh, advanced Arabic grammar, biography of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), and more). After graduation, he continued his studies with scholars in and around Damascus. He has studied several important texts and is qualified to translate and teach them.
