Imam Yousuf Memon

Born and raised in Buffalo NY., I begin learning the Arabic language at the age 6 and the memorization of the Holy Quran at age 7, After completing my Hifdh at the age of 9, I then went on to pursue my Islamic studies,  After completing my studies, I moved to Canada with my parents and spent 2 years studying  Business Marketing/Management.  In 2014, I began my career as an Imam in the South West Florida area of Sarasota/Bradenton. Later moving to the Port Charlotte area in 2016,  were I remained until 2020.  At the height of Covid I used that time to spend with my parents and siblings.  In early 2021 I took up the Imam position in South Jersey at the Muslim American Community Association.  As an Imam and Teacher my passion lies in youth development and engagement.  I thrive on providing a safe haven for young people and find that my passion for serving the Muslim community is what led me to this path.  I am very excited to be the new Hifdh instructor at  Iqra Academy and my wife and I look forward to engaging with the Iqra/Khair community.
