Winter teaches theology at Cambridge University and is the director of Studies in Theology at Wolfson College in Cambridge. He is also the Dean of the Cambridge Muslim College. He is a role model for British and European Muslims, and indeed Muslims around the world.
Winter graduated with a double-first in Arabic from Cambridge University and then went on to study at Al-Azhar. He then studied under the direct tutelage of Islamic scholars, including the famous Habib Ahmad Mashhur al-Haddad. Winter conveys his knowledge to the English speaking world though his translations, articles and lectures. He has become a powerful voice of traditional Islam to the English-speaking world. He is also the director of the Sunnah project, which has published the foremost scholarly Arabic editions of the major Sunni Hadith collections.
Winter was the force behind establishing the Cambridge Muslim College – a pioneering institute, which aims to produce Islamic leaders who will help meet the many challenges facing Britain today. He is also the Chair of the Muslim Education Trust, which is overseeing the building of the new Cambridge Mosque. With its emphasis on sustainability and almost total reliance on green energy, the new Cambridge Mosque will be Europe’s first eco-mosque and a truly landmark building for the city of Cambridge and its residents.
