His educational route was studded with important and effective supervision in Shari’a and the Fundamentals of Quranic readings from stalwarts like Abdul Aziz Ibn Baz, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Jibreen, Shaykh Mahmoud Sukkar, Sheikh Ahmad Moustafa Abou Al Hassan, Sheikh Ibrahim Ali Al Qayyim and these scholars made an everlasting impression on Shaykh Alshoaey.
