Born in Hammah, 1 of 3 sons with 5 sisters I grew up there and developed an interest in religious studies culminating in my attending a boarding school specialising in the Islamic sciences. I eventually moved to Damascus to study at an al-Azhar University branch at the age of 18.
After 3 years of study there I transferred to the main campus in Egypt to complete my 4th year where I attained a bachelor’s degree in Islamic Law. I pursued my postgraduate studies in Damascus, specialising in methodologies of jurisprudence, spending my time in the college or the public library, reading reference books for long hours.
In 2015, due to the war, we ended up in the border town of Atma where 100,000 displaced people were. Despite the pain of displacement, Allah blessed me with work in an educational project that I loved from day one: Iqra Charity’s education division, Abna Ashaam School, where I was employed as a teacher of religious education.
I received training in instruction and was able to contribute in the development of the School’s Islamic Curriculum, where Allah honoured me by enabling me to write, revise and produce 7 books in cooperation with a distinguished team of educators.
Then I was trained for administration, and became a supervisor of the Boys’ School. Today, in the 5th year of my career, I consider myself a part of an important project to prepare distinguished leaders of tomorrow and students of knowledge that will benefit society. Following more development and training in the administrative field I was promoted to Deputy Director of the Education Division in Iqra Charity.
There is no doubt that patience was the most important thing I needed in my work, and my faith that I was on the right path motivated me to work, for it is Allah’s Pleasure that we seek. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
