Ismail ibn Musa Menk, famously known as Mufti Menk, born on 27th June 1975 is a Muslim cleric from Zimbabwe. And as the Head of the country’s fatwa department, Menk has been identified as a Salafi. But the scholar has disregarded being in any Muslim sect.
Menk was born in Harare, where he undertook his initial studies with his father, memorizing the Quran and learning Arabic, Urdu and Hanafi fiqh. He went to St. John’s College (Harare) for senior school. He later specialised in Hanbali fiqh at the Islamic University of Madinah.
