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. In 2010, Wasif enrolled in Bayyinah's Dream Program where he was among the top graduates of its first year. He then obtained his bachelor’s degree in Business Management and went on to work as a marketing professional for a Fortune 500 company. While working full-time, Wasif taught a 1-year Quranic Arabic Program for Islamic Learning Foundation in Chicago.
Wasif currently resides in Dallas, Texas where he is enrolled in Qalam Institute's 1-year Islamic Studies Program and teaches Bayyinah's part-time evening Arabic Program.
