He is involved in translating tafsir (Explanation of the Quran) into the French language amongst other things.

Zakaria grew up amongst atheist views and antagonism towards religion under the guise of "Lacitee"

Learn how listening to his inner voice and following the path to truth and knowledge eventually led him to Islam.

After becoming Muslim, he made the bold decision to move to Egypt in the pursuit of being closer to Allah and Muslims.

In a world full of chaos and pain, Mr.Zakaria aims to share hope and light.

May his wisdom benefit you.

About Zakaria:

  • He is French but has lived in Egypt for the last 16 years
  • His mother was a native French woman
  • His father is French as well, but has Chinese origins and was born in Tahiti (a French island in the Pacific Ocean) the capital of French Polynesia
  • He converted to Islam 18 years ago in 2002
  • Two years later he left France to live among Muslims
  • He lives in Cairo
  • He is 51, married and has 3 daughters

From Zakaria's bio:

As for my work, I am originally an English teacher. I graduated from a French university in 1994. When I came to Egypt I was blessed to work for the Islamic website Islamweb for 11 years. I worked there mainly as the proofreader of the French speaking team. I also did translating, and I was supervisor of the team for some time.

Since I reverted it took me some years to finally understand the huge gap there is between the teachings of our Prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam and the way Muslims behave nowadays.

Since work at Islamweb finished I haven't had a stable job: I have done different things: I have been teaching French and English, I have done proofreading, website content writing, studio recording, I translated 2 Islamic books. The last one was an 'Naba al Adhim' by Sheikh Muhammad Draz an Egyptian scholar from al Azhar university . In sha Allah it will be published and distributed free of charge by the website tafsir.net. It's a wonderful book where Sheikh Draz demonstrates that the Qur'an cannot but have been written by Allah.

I also have a website called 'French Is For You', this is a website to teach French to English speakers.
