Under the wings of eminent Alexandrian Scholars like Sheikh Saad Al-Din Al Ghobashi, he garnered education on the sciences of Quran and Sunnah before receiving certifications in four readings amidst well known sheikhs such as Abdul Basit Hashem and gave a boost to his education by training under noted Shaykhs like Sheikh Abdul Razzaq Afifi, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Kaaoud, and Sheikh Ibn Jibrin.
It came as no surprise when this talented Shaykh achieved the position of a member of the Faculty of Islamic and Arabic Studies at the American Open University alongside conducting Imamat and preaching at the Dar Al Farouk in Minneapolis and not to forget he was also elected as a member of the Fatwa committee and of the Helal committee at the Islamic Assembly in North America.
