I have talked to akhi Asadullah Ali al-Andalusi and he has impressive credentials when it comes to Muslim apologetics and comparative religion. This is a brief background of him from what he has told me, and from what is already known publicly. Asadullah is especiality focusing on the ideology of Atheism, which is not common among Muslims.
At present, brother Asadullah Ali is a research fellow for Yaqeen Institute and the founder of the Andalusian Project, an independent research platform for counter-Islamophobia studies.
Asadullah Ali also holds degrees in both Western and Islamic Philosophy and last I checked he is currently pursuing his Ph.D in Islamic Studies as well at Universiti Malaya.
It is of interest to note that al-Andalusi specializes in topics related to the philosophy of science, atheism, terrorism, Islamic political thought and ethics, and other issues surrounding the global Muslim community. He has added on to the discourse of Islam versus materialism and atheism and has no doubt made a lot of contribution to Muslim apologetics in general.
With all these credentials that has been mentioned, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Asadullah Ali al-Andalusi is totally qualified to talk about the topics that I have mentioned.
