Mohammed Bilal Abdullah

I memorized the Holy Qur’an at the age of fourteen and I studied in the Darul Uloom of Dewsbury and Bury for 8 yrs and graduated with Distinction in the Uloom of Sharia (Islamic Sciences). I also studied Tajweed under shuyukh such as Shaykh Basheer Ahmed Siddiq, teacher of Qira’at at the Prophet’s Mosque, Madina al-Munawwarah. After my graduation from Darul Uloom, I studied at SOAS and completed BSc and MSc degree in Economics. I also obtained my PGCE qualification from Institute of Education, University of London.

I have had a huge interest in education since my early age and I believe that education is the way out from poverty, deprivation and decline. It is also the key to unlocking the success of communities, societies and nations, towards creating better citizens, well rounded future generations and a better world for all to live in. Hence I am one of the founding members of Ebrahim College. Currently I am the Chair of Governors at Ebrahim Academy and Head of Economics and Work Related Learning at one of the leading Academies in East London. My mission in life is to improve the life chances of the future generations and empower young people to make the right choices so that they can better serve their Creator (SWT) and His creation.
