Ahmed Khairi Al Omari (born in 1970) (Arabic: أحمد خیري العمري) is an Iraqi author and dentist. He was honored as one of the intellectual writers by Dar Al Fikr publishing house in its 2010 annual tradition, and was known to be the youngest of honorees amongst Abdel-Wahab El-Messiri, Al-Bouti and Al-Zuhayli.

Early life and career

Al Omari was born in 1970 in Mosul, Baghdad, and is the son of Khairi Al Omari. He belongs to the family tree of ‘Umar that traces its lineage back to the second Caliph 'Umar ibn al-Khattāb. His father was a historian and judge. He was also known for his historical and military literature, and for his structuring of the Iraqi armed forces.

He graduated from University of Baghdad in 1993 with a dental degree, but he was mainly known for his writings in the field of Islam. His works was the product of an innovative approach combined with a literary style.


Through his books, Al Omari added more quantitative and qualitative weight to the Islamic Renaissance Movement. His distinct language and clear statements facilitated the communication of Islamic thoughts to a wider audience than that targeted by Malek Bennabi, who was one of the prominent pioneers in the field. Al Omari was further distinguished by his reliance on the authenticity of the Quran in the interpretation of the thoughts, which made it more acceptable.

In his book, The Quranic Compass, Al Omari demonstrates Abrahamism as the cornerstone of the religion of Islam, and Abraham as the first Muslim, as termed by the Quran. As opposed to all religious texts, Abraham arrived at his faith through careful observation and reflection, and rejection of the prevailing answers (Al-An'am|Sūrah Al-An’am verses 74-79). Al Omari concluded that the stages Abraham went through while seeking after the Truth is that that forms the cornerstone of the religion of Islam, for it traces back to Abraham as the first Muslim ever.

Al Omari also discusses the concept of Renaissance from a cultural perspective that combines popular culture and prevalent ideas. According to Al Omari, our ignorance is derived from social proof that is centuries’ worth of accumulation. He arrives at the conclusion that the Renaissance results from a change in perceptions through the process of uprooting stereotypes and challenging misconceptions, and the rooting of positive perceptions derived from Quranic verses.


Al Omari is a prolific writer who covered a variety of topics in his writings. He published six books in the span of five years, from 2003 to 2008, which achieved increasing popularity, as well as wrote dozens of articles in Al Arab e-newspaper and Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper. The genres of the books varied from scientificresearch, to literature novels and letters.

  1. The Quranic Compass: Different Sailing For The Lost Map. Damascus: Dar Al-Fikr, 2003. Despite its huge volume and high price, the first edition of Al Omari’s first book was published in record time. In the book, Al Omari criticizes some of the Islamic thoughts in the Quran, which provoked feelings of rejection and aggression in some people, and acceptance and admiration in others. Through his analysis, he entered into, what he terms as, a historical minefield, which is Rashidun Caliphate period. Al Omari was suspected of not being the author of his own book due to his young age, but the consistency in production negated this.
