Sheikh Wisam is the lead instructor at Bayyinah for the Essentials of Tajweed, a sub-division of the Quranic Arabic track of study. He completed memorization of the Noble Quran by the age of 16 at the Islamic Institute of Education in Chicago and went on to study the science of Tajweed formally with Sh. Ahmad Wafaa in Cairo, Egypt. Upon his return to the United States, he taught the science of Tajweed, Islamic history and Hifz for 2 years. His quest for Islamic knowledge led him to Quran Academy in Lahore, Pakistan where he earned a Bachelors in Arabic and Islamic literature. Returning once again to the States, he dedicated himself to teaching a very successful and popular Tajweed and Hifz program in Long Island, New York. He developed a unique curriculum for letter recognition, writing and fluid reading, that upon execution, displayed remarkable results among young and old alike.

Ali Anwar, but also enhanced his background in Arabic grammar.
