Aboe Ismail, born in Morocco in 1974, has completed the study of Islamic Spiritual Care.
In his day-to-day life, he is engaged with his duties as an Imam and a researcher.
The common thread in his life is Islamic knowledge. During his younger years in Morocco (1981 -1989), the best local imams and teachers taught him. In the Netherlands, mosque el Oemma (Spoorwijk, The Hague) and the as-Soennah foundation (Groente- en Fruitweg, The Hague) in particular played an important role in his further development. His mission is to help Muslims build a bridge between their religious identity and Western society.
According to him, it is not true that there is a conflict between being a Muslim and being Dutch: “Muslims can be proud Dutch people, without giving up any of their faith.” In recent years (since 2013), he has focused on developing intervention programs to make Muslims resilient, to respond adequately to the challenges presented by society.
