Regarding Hamza Yusuf: You should read about people before making false assumptions.

Hamza Yusuf lived and studied traditional, Classical Islam in UAE, Algeria, Morocco and Mauritania for years. He has a shaykh of Sufism in Morocco and his shaykh of the Shari'ah Sciences is Murabit - ul - Hajj. He follows the Maliki school of Jurisprudence and the 'Ashari school of Theology and he is recognized worldwide as a top Islamic Scholar.

You say that he should go to Yemen. He has been to Yemen. As a matter of fact, he is a well - known friend of the Haba'ib Lineage of Scholars and Sufis in the Hadhramaut. If you had a couple of working neurons, it would probably be possible for you to look up Hamza Yusuf on google (maybe if you wouldn't insist on mis-spelling his chosen transliteration) and find the website for Zaytuna Institute and then his own email address.

Really, if you are going to criticize someone then you should at least know what you are talking about.
