Muhammad Anwar Abbasi


Muhammad Anwar Abbasi- A brief Profile:

Muhammad Anwar Abbasi – is known for blatantly challenging conventional wisdom and upholding his core values at all costs. He looks overly serious, even scary at times, when holds back his trademark smiles. He rarely fails in smiling though. Humor, wit and logic never part ways with him. During discussions, he comes out as intensely and aggressively logical. Anwar does not shy away refuting illogical logical regardless of where it originates from. He is touchingly generous – an itching giver. Graciously trusts most untrustworthy people. Reads avidly, thinks compulsively and writes impulsively. He is an empathic listener. Abbasi is transparent to the core, truthful and highly trusted among a large circle of friends and family.

He displays a genuine disposition when criticized as if he has been deeply deprived of criticism. Agrees in seconds when something makes sense to him. Changes position readily when pointed out that his premise is flawed. He is extremely skillful in maintaining a clear demarcation between people as packages and their undesirable personality traits. He dislikes their bad habits, but not to them. He is always young among his friends and family. Ironically, his popularity is one dimensional for he is tied to friends and family only. He never succeeded in making foes. His scholarly discourses maysound simplistic at times, but most of them get dodged – not answered. He debates vehemently even ferociously but not without scholarship and research. Friends wishing to see him emotional as a potential teenager should ask him to compromise on his core principles.

His landmark book, “Bank Interest: Profit or Usury,” is a greater challenge to the conventional wisdom and misplaced religiosity. His premise is solid, Irrefutable. His inference: undeniable. His conclusion is as forceful as the premise.
