My name is Amaal Shaban Zakarya. I am married and blessed with a daughter Alhamdulillah.
I began memorizing the Qur’an when I was four years old and completed memorization at the age of 16 under the guidance of my teacher Sheikh Abur-Raheem Al Bayoumy rahimahullah.
I obtained a certificate on completion of the Qur’an in the dialect of Hafs ‘An ‘Aasim and am currently studying toward my Ijaaza in this Bi’idhnillah. I have been blessed with a wonderful teacher Alhamdulillah who constantly inspires and motivates me to do better and to study the Qur’an in order to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alahi wa sallam).
became a teacher because I yearn to follow the prophetic narration:
(خيركم من تعلم القرآن وعلمه)
“The best among you are those that learn the Qur’an and teach it.” [Bukhari]
I Pray that Allah allows me to see this on my scale of good deeds on the day of Judgment and makes this a sadaah jaariyah for me.
The Quran has always been a source of comfort and tranquility for me as Allah says in His Book, that it is only with the remembrance of Allah that hearts find ease and contentment.
My favourite surah is Surah Maryam, I have loved reciting and listening to this surah since childhood and the miracle of Maryam(as) is inspiring.
I am blessed to have joined Tanzeel and I pray Allah makes my journey with the Quran and my students a blessed one .
