Yusuf Estes was born in 1944, to a musically talented, Christian family in Midwest America. Mom played piano, dad played piano & clarinet. Moved to Houston, Texas in 1949. He was baptized in Disciples of Christ Church in 1956.

Music Stores, Politics & Jesus..

Both worked in politics and served together on the Texas Governor's Conference for Business Leaders during the early 1980's. During his business career he built up a chain of music stores and even had his own television series called the "Estes Music Jamboree".

Wealth & Faith - But Still Looking..
Sheik Yusuf owned expensive homes, cars, boats and at one time he even owned airplanes. Even though he had great wealth, while Sheik Yusuf was calling people to salvation through Jesus, we kept looking.

*He Met a Muslim from Egypt..
It was 1991 when his father introduced Sheik Yusuf to a Muslim from Egypt. Sheik Yusuf immediately tired to convert him to Jesus and be a Christian. But the Muslim brought true understanding about the world's fastest growing religion and a real awakening to Islam.

*He Learned Important Lesson..
Sheik Yusuf learned Islam is not just blind faith. The Egyptian Muslim showed him, authentic proofs and evidence are essential to true Islam.

Catholic Priest Enters Islam...
Father Peter Jacobs, a Catholic priest lived in the home of Sheik Yusuf and also tried to show Christianity to the Muslims. But after three months of debates, dialogs and a couple visits to the mosque, Father Peter Jacobs entered Islam and changed his name to brother Yahya.

*Deep Prayer For Guidance..
After seeing a priest enter Islam and actually finding so much proof for truth of Islam, Sheik Yusuf had to really think and pray deep in his heart for guidance. And Allah did guide him, Al Hamdulillah.

Entered Islam - July 1991..
After putting his head on the ground and asking Almighty God to guide him, the guidance came and he accepted God's Will in complete peace (the meaning of ISLAM is: Submission to God in Peace).

Continued Travel & Studies in Islam..
Sheik Yusuf is always studying Islam, Arabic language and the Quran while working day and night to present the correct message of Islam both to Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

He presents Islam in his simple, yet direct approach to easily understand what is now the "World's Most Misunderstood Religion". His talks help people get the right idea about God, Worship, Beliefs and Teachings of Islam. Even born Muslims say his presentations help them understand Islam better.
