Maher Al Mueaqly - Biography
Maher Al Mueaqly
Hailing from the city of the Prophet ﷺ, Sheikh Maher Ibn Hamd Ibn Mueaql Al Mueaqly Al Baloui was brought into this world in 1969 and has been a welcome addition into the world of Quran recitation and preaching.
Being a mastermind in the study of Mathematics, Sheik Maher took to leading prayers in numerous Masajids in Makkah and Madinah which later gave way for him being designated as the official advisor to Prince Abdul Majid in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
His career took a slight detour and he routed himself into teaching at the King Abdullah Saud University in Makkah. Simultaneously, Shaykh Maher completed his Doctorate in the year 2012 from Umm Al Qura University.
Initially asked to serve as an Imam in Masjid Al Nabawi in 2006 and 2007, he was finally handed over permanent Imamat at the Mosque of mosques, Masjid Al Haram in Makkah in 2007. This was a landmark achievement for this gifted Shaykh and this was soon to be followed by another feather in his bejeweled cap which was having the ultimate privilege and honor of leading the Taraweeh prayers alongside another magnanimous personality, Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al Sudais in 2008.
He has managed to lead the prayers as an Imam alongside many other greats in the field, mainly Sheikh Abdullah Awad Al Juhany and Sheikh Khalid Al Ghamdi. Sheikh Maher is now serving as Khateeb of Masjid Al Haram in Ramadan 2016 on the orders of King Salman.
