Shaykh Hamza Yusuf’s popularity in Muslim countries

I came across some very interesting facts recently. I have not researched enough but looking at the initial data, I was surprised to find that Shaykh Hamza is becoming increasingly popular in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey, UAE and Egypt.

According to google trends ‘Hamza Yusuf’ is used as a search term the most in this order:

1. Pakistan
2. United Arab Emirates
3. Egypt
4. Morocco
5. United Kingdom
6. Saudi Arabia
7. Malaysia
8. South Africa
9. Canada
10. Australia

Now, that is impressive! Considering that our conventional wisdom will have us believe that the elite of these countries are corrupt, this result comes as a surprise. Internet usage is still exclusive to the urban centers.

Traffic info on http://www.zaytuna.org from alexa gives the following results:

The highest rank of Zaytuna in Bangladesh!!

Such trends give me hope 🙂

    yar, we should get together and invite SHY to Lahore.. just like Sheikh Nuh Keller visited once… maybe a lecture in LUMS or somewhere where we could charge something. Rs 1000 for a ticket to listen to SHY.. all proceeds go to a charity… kya khyaal hai ?
