Wasif Khan was born in Doha, Qatar and moved to the United States at the tender age of two. Being the youngest of four siblings, he was always
motivated to excel in his studies. His keen interest in the Book of
Allah led him to begin memorizing the Qur’an at a very young age.
2010, Wasif enrolled in Bayyinah's Dream Program where he was among the
top graduates of its first year. He then obtained his degree in
Business Management and went on to work as a marketing professional for a
Fortune 100 company. While working full-time, Wasif taught a 1-year
Quranic Arabic Program for Islamic Learning Foundation in Chicago.
2014 Wasif graduated from Qalam Institute’s 1-year Islamic Seminary
program directly under the tutelage of Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda.
completing his Islamic studies, Wasif has dedicated himself to teaching
Quranic Arabic. He has developed a curriculum custom-tailored for part
time learners. Currently he teaches and serves as the program director
for Bayyinah's Access and 10-Day Arabic Programs. Since 2014 he has
taught Quranic Arabic to well over 4,000 students. The Access program is
particularly special to Wasif as he is a student of the program himself
and after seeing the impact it had on his understanding, has worked to
offer it to as many students as possible!
