About me

I memorized the Quran at just 9 years old. I have been studying the Quran and Islamic Sciences my whole life. It is my life’s work and passion. I am an Imam in Egypt, lead the daily prayers and deliver the khutbah every Friday. I have been teaching Quran, Arabic, and Islamic Studies online for over 5 years. I love working in my community as an Imam and I am passionate about teaching my students from all over the world. Teaching Quran is like becoming part of the student’s family, it’s something they will have with them for the rest of their life and I’m so proud I get to be part of that legacy.

You ask, we answer

Here are responses to some frequently-asked questions

Can I choose to have a female teacher?

Yes. Most women prefer to be taught by a female. Our female teachers are certified with ijaza, have taught for years, and have attained recognition as a scholar. They are all highly qualified and offer a level of comfort to our female students. Let us know your preference and we are happy to arrange it.

How do you pick your teachers?

With thousands of applications a year, we are blessed to be in a position to choose only the best. It is a rigorous application and background check process. They must go through a preliminary round of vetting before being offered an interview. After hiring, they are required to successfully complete a training and onboarding procedure before they teach their first student. All our teachers have regular in-service training sessions to empower them with the latest tools in education.

How do you maintain quality?

Every lesson is recorded. There is no other program that offers recorded sessions and the opportunity to view them. The academic advising team uses it for training purposes and to continually find ways to improve and make it dynamic for the student.

Do the teachers speak English?

Yes. With the majority of our students being native English speakers, it’s important that we maintain a staff of English-speaking teachers and advisors. Be assured, our native Arabic speaking teachers all have English aptitude.
