Depicted by his congregation and global audience as “Inspiring”, “Endearing” and “Humble” Maulana Syed Hadi Hasan’s ethos has focussed on the magnitude of seeking what is honourable, just, sacred, beautiful and divine.

His studies culminated with a Master’s Thesis in Farsi entitled “Peaceful Co-Existence among Religions according to Quran and Sunnah’’.
