At the tender age of 10, Ahmad Othman Badawi began what would become a lifelong journey with the Qur’ān. Sheikh Ahmad embarked on his studies with the renowned Sheikh Amīn al-Salūsī and completed the memorization of the Qur’ān in the recitation of Hafṣ `an `Āsim in 1991. Shortly thereafter, he travelled to Damascus in order to recite with Shaykh Mūwaffaq Mahmūd `Uūn, one of the senior shuyukh in Damascus and al-Ghūta, from whom he was awarded an ijaza  Sanad in the 2 recitations of `Āsim in 2004. He then went on to complete the 10 qir’āt via the ṭarīq al-Shaṭibiyyah and al-Durrah with Shaykh Mūwaffaq and was awarded a Sanad, a chain containing the scholarly lineage of teachers back to the Prophet (s), in 2009.  Today, Sheikh Ahmad continues to teach Qur’ān and to date has awarded several Edmonton students with ijaza for memorization of the Qur’ān.
