Poet, artist, nature-loving and lover of the Creator and His Messenger ﷺ, Ali Scully was born in Bradford in 1969 and raised in London. In the last decade, he’s lived in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, with his wife and two teenage children. During his early 20s and 30s, he had the good fortune of travelling extensively throughout Asia. Through his love of poetry and a yearning to explore natural environments, he began to form a spiritual connection which led him to question the purpose of life and have an awakening to the Divine. Subsequently, he reverted to Islam in 1999, not long after which he started the poem Light Steps. Over the years that followed, Ali was inspired by works of the great Muslim saints and poets. He was fortunate to be able to extend his travels, seeking knowledge from spiritual guides and partaking in circles of remembrance. Through his personal research and self-study he developed a deep love for the Prophet of Islam, Sayyiduna Muhammad ﷺ.
