MUSA ʿABD AR-RASHID
– Head of Quality and Compliance
Musa majored in anthropology, which included studying folklore, religion, archaeology, and Arabic while still an atheist. While involved in the alt-right movement, he started reading the perennialists and various theological works and authors such as the Vedas and Nicholas of Cusa, which eventually led to him reverting to Islam in 2015. He then worked in developmental disabilities services for almost five years, first in direct care and then in compliance. He has been a freelance editor for many years and continues to work in Muslim publishing.
Musa has also been studying herbal medicine for several years, combining Western and Ayurvedic methods with the Sunnah, and has collected an unusual library of traditional medicine books from around the world. This interest sprang from necessity after he experienced a years-long decline before delving into experimentation. His current focus is on halal alternatives to the trend of tinctures and spagyrics. In the mainstream, his time in disabilities services left him with certificates in first aid/CPR, disaster management, psychological first aid, and others, and he is pursuing additional qualifications in Islamic psychology. Aside from Arabic, he may use Spanish, German, or some hard-won French to get his point across.
