FOUNDERS

Chartered Establishment

Meet the founders who have established QARI from the ground up. With several decades of experience between them, they have worked tirelessly to establish this institute to teach sacred knowledge and carry on our scholarly tradition. All three of our founders have obtained several degrees; the three combined have spent over forty years in Madinah and continue to maintain strong ties to the city of the Prophet ﷺ.
