Abu Taubah (born Marcus Robertson) is a convert to Islam from Brooklyn, New York.  He comes from an educated family where his father was the founding Vice President of Medgar Evers College, the only Negro college in the Northeastern United States.  His mother was a school principal and college professor.  He served in the U.S. Marine Corps before teaching at the Islamic School of Kansas City.

He then went on to study at Umm ul Qura in Mauritania under the tutelage of Shaykh Muhammad Saalim wal-udood ash-Shanqitee (rahimahullah).  He is an expert in the Arabic language and is a hafidh of the Qu’ran with a specialization in Warsh.  He is the founder of the Timbuktu Seminary, which is an online institution to transmit the Islamic sciences in a traditional format.
