Born and raised in Liverpool, England, Ustadha Nagheba Hayel is the wife of the respected Shaykh Ibrahim Osi-Efa. Ustadha Nagheba studied Arabic and the Islamic Sciences in Damascus, Syria and then moved to Tarim, Yemen where she studied at the respected Dar al-Zahra institution for six years, obtaining ijazaat to teach several texts. Ustadha Nagheba also served as a teacher at Dar al-Zahra. For those who don't know, Tarim is a beautiful city, often dubbed "the daughter of Madina" in Hadramawt, S Yemen. It is a city filled with Ahlul Bayt and ulema, and tradition states that during his Caliphate, Sayedina Aby Bakr prayed for Tarim due to the loyalty of the people of the city. The region (Hadramawt) is also home to the great scholar and sayyed Shaykh Abu Bakr b. Salim, the author of Durud-e-Taj/Salat-ut-Taajiya, which many of us memorise and read.
