Samir studied Evolutionary Biology & Cosmology at McMaster University in Canada and realized that the real answers could only be found with God and in the Islamic tradition. In 2007 he began studying Islam in English with various preachers & scholars in Canada, eventually moving on to private, intensive study of the classical Islamic sciences scholars in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Cairo, Egypt. During his studies abroad and after returning to Canada, he has worked as a professional educator at both a high school and university level. He has ijazahs to teach most of the texts he has studied with his teachers, which range from beginner to advanced texts across different subjects in the traditional Islamic sciences.
