Sheikh Yasser Borhami was born in 1958 in Alexandria. In 1977–1978, he was one of the early figures of the Salafi Call (al-da‘wa al-salafiyya), along with Mohammed Ismail al-Muqaddim and Ahmed Farid. A physician by training, he owns a clinic in Alexandria where he regularly sees patients. He also teaches and preaches at the “rightly-guided caliphs” (al-khulafa’ al-rashidun) mosque in the Abu Suleiman district of Alexandria and has written numerous religious works. He is considered a specialist on the creed (‘aqida), an important discipline to the Salafis.
