Muhammad A-Z by Yusef Estes

Learn More About Islam And The Muslims

Yusuf Estes, is an American convert to Islam and Director of “the Islamic Mission Foundation International”, an Islamic research group dedicated to presenting the message of Islam in English according to the Quran and Sunnah.

He was brought up in Texas in a Protestant Christian family; as members of the Disciples of Christ. From 1962 until 1990, he had a career in the music industry, entertainment, marketing, music instructor and music minister and owned several musical instrument companies including Estes Piano and Organ Company.

In 1991, Estes had business dealings with a Muslim named Mohamed from Egypt. He learned about the religion of Islam firsthand and converted to Islam after seeing a Catholic priest friend enter Islam. He was then followed by his wife, father, daughters and step mother. He has since pursued Arabic language and Quranic studies in Egypt, Morocco and Turkey; and to date is working within the field of Dawah (calling the people to Islam).
