What am I doing?
Why am I doing it?

Every day, I ask myself these two fundamental questions...

Back in 2011, the answers to these two questions led me to abandon a successful investment banking career (not to mention a guaranteed $1 million compensation package, which would have effectively made me a millionaire by the age of 30).

Instead of serving my cause, I wanted to do something far more meaningful in service of God's cause. So I took on the role of managing and growing a new non-profit initiative, National Zakat Foundation.

In 2019, I developed and started teaching a course on Salat called Transform My Prayer. It's had an amazing impact and now, in 2021, I've stepped down from my role at NZF to focus on my ultimate passion: delivering transformational educational experiences to help people live truly God-centered lives.

Something Seems to be Working...

Here are just some of the thousands around the world who have benefited so far

Iqbal authentically and beautifully provides a new perspective.


"Insightful, empowering, wonderfully informative talks. Thank you so much! They have been priceless! Gifting so many practical & easy to follow suggestions, this course has literally transformed my prayers! The guidance offered is brilliant. We can never know too much, & it's always so refreshing to see things from a new perspective. Iqbal authentically & beautifully does this. Personally he has opened my eyes & heart to the depth of our prayer. He shows how Prayer is less of a 'just do it & it counts' & more of 'make it real & meaningful' because this is all that really matters. Showing us how this can be done in simple steps. It has changed everything for me! I am so very grateful, thank you Iqbal! May the blessings of Allah be on you tenfold for sharing your knowledge & gifting us with a greater opportunity to know how to better connect in our communication with our Almighty. So beautifully kind, so deeply appreciative. Forever grateful & thrilled to have found you."

Iqbal is very engaging, offers anecdotes to bring things into context and everything he shares is backed up from the Quran and sunnah.


"If you want to improve the focus of your salah then this is the course for you! It has truly transformed my salah - I used to close my eyes for much of the salah to help my concentration but following this course has literally opened my eyes! The course is easy to follow as Iqbal is very engaging, offers anecdotes to bring things into context and everything he shares is backed up from the Quran and sunnah. The odd joke now and again is entertaining! 30 min sessions are perfect for the busy lives we lead. You can access all the learning material on the platform. I think one of the important things that Iqbal offers is the ability to contact him with any question that you have at any time. His replies are prompt. Don't hesitate sign up if you really want to transform you salah!"

Iqbal has kindly shown and advised how we can make a spiritual connection during our salah. It’s something you can’t find elsewhere.


"The transform my prayer course has been such an eye opener for me. It breaks down how to offer salah by using all our senses, mind, body, tongue and heart. It’s delivered in a easy to understand and enjoyable format. I have learnt so much from it, not just how to improve my salah but how I can develop other sides of my personal life as a Muslim too. Brother Iqbal has kindly shown and advised how we can make a spiritual connection during our salah. It’s something you can’t find elsewhere. I feel so empowered after completing this course...so I can feel the beauty and essence of salah. Before this course I felt salah was a burden/duty I had to complete. But now I feel excited that salah time is coming up and that it’s going to be another chance for me to have a one to one with Allah swt. I would encourage everyone to complete the course no matter what stage of “practicing” they’re in."

Fahema Begum

Iqbal has masterfully struck a balance between imparting knowledge with practical takeaways.


"This course really is a no-brainer for anyone serious about their connecting or reconnecting with prayer - I would go as far as to say it has been personally transformative and shifted my mindset both in the way I approach prayer as well as how I perform it. Iqbal has masterfully struck a balance between imparting knowledge related to Salaat with practical takeaways that one can apply and notice an immediate improvement in their quality of prayer. I cannot recommend this course highly enough."

Ziyad Saloojee

Iqbal has a punchy delivery style...


"Iqbal has a punchy delivery style that makes you not only understand the core concepts but also drive you to sustained action and transformation.

I would recommend this course to one and all - young and old. Authentic. Relevant. Practical."

Mahboob Hussain

Iqbal is a fantastic speaker, very clear and to the point. He is very knowledgable.


"Iqbal is a fantastic speaker, very clear and to the point. He is very knowledgable and offers his views on all questions asked. He is also very approachable by allowing you to contact him directly. The online portal with the recorded sessions works very well I’ve had no issues. Reminders are sent before sessions and follow up emails sent after sessions with links for the recording - the whole course is seamless from start to finish. The course itself is simple for anyone with even a basic level of understanding to follow, and yet the result has been phenomenal. My prayer truly is transforming!! Really enjoying the course so far and would highly recommend."
