Hussain Yee or Hussein Yee (born 1950) is a Malaysian preacher and Islamic scholar.[1]

Background[edit]

Early years[edit]

Born into a Buddhist family, Hussain Yee converted to Islam at the age of 18. Yee studied under the scholar Muhammad Nasiruddin al-Albani.[2]

Positions held[edit]

Hussain Yee is the Founder and President of Al-Khaadem.[3]

Among other positions, he spent a year in 1980 as an Advisor for the Cambodian Islamic Refugee Organisation in Paris, France. He has also served as a Counsellor at PERKIM Kuala Lumpur and as the Director of Da’wah for the Islamic Center in Hong Kong from 1984 to 1985.[4]

Controversy and response[edit]

In 2015, he gave a keynote address at the Australian Islamic Peace Conference (AIPC), which was attended by religious leaders from Jewish and Christian faiths.[5]

Yee has said that Muslims terrorists were not responsible for the September 11 attacks on the United States, just based on "suspicion".[6][7]

Hussain Ye later responded to the accusations and denied ever saying that "Jews were behind 9/11 attack", and accused The Australian newspaper of "inept journalism".[5]
