I am Yaser Almatrfi from Saudi Arabia (Makkah), a researcher, publisher and author, interested in theological and juristic studies
I started to interest in Islamic theology at an early stage of my life,
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Shari'a College at Qassim University. I graduated in 2002 with excellent and first class honor.
This interest motivated me to continue my studies of Master's degree in Islamic theology at Imam Muhammad ibn Saud Islamic University, The title of my master's thesis was: The Impact of Islamic theology on Qur’an interpretation.
Later on, I published several books and papers and some scholarly researches in number of peer-reviewed journals, as well as several participations in local and international conferences.
After earning my Master's degree, I started working as a lecturer at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah.
Additionally, all my other works and contributions, outside the university, embodied my passion for Islamic studies. I established a number of key institutions in various countries, such as Nama’a Center for Research and Studies in Lebanon, Nama’a Academy for Islamic and Humanitarian Sciences in Morrocco, Nama’a for Research and Studies website and Nama’a Peer-reviewed Journal for Islamic and humanities studies. Through these institutions, I have contributed to the publication of studies of more than 200 books authored or translated by leading scholars and researchers in the Arab world.
