Dr. Anees is a writer and a social critic. A biologist by training (Doctorate: Indiana University), his contributions in the monthly Inquiry (London) have played a pioneering role in the Muslim dialog on religion and science.

Author of half a dozen books and over 300 articles, book reviews, and bibliographies, he has contributed to the Encyclopedia of the Modern Islamic World and Encyclopedia of the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine in Non-Western Cultures, among others . Philosophy of Islamic science and the study of Sira and Hadith are among his perennial interests. His book, Guide to Sira and Hadith Literature in Western Languages is considered a "classic."

He founded the world's premiere journal of current awareness on the Muslim world: Periodica Islamica. It has been recognized as "an invaluable guide" for all multidisciplinary discourses on the world of Islam. He is a founding editor of the International Journal of Islamic and Arabic Studies, and an advisory editor of the Journal of Islamic Science and Islamic Studies. In 2000, he was selected as Religion Editor for the new online encyclopedia, Nupedia.
