Sheikh Ra'ed Al Rosan
Sheikh Ra'ed Saleh Al Rosan was born in Irbid, Jordan. His love for the Qur’an started at a very young age. In the 7th grade he received the first prize in the Hashemite Qur’anic competition of Jordan for his beautiful Qur’anic recitation. After this he won numerous awards in Jordan for his recitation of the Qur’an. His interest in Islamic Studies drove him to pursue an Islamic education in the prestigious Islamic University of Al-Medina, Saudi Arabia. He received his Bachelors degree in Islamic Hadeeth there. He continued his education upon his arrival to the United States in 2007. He obtained his Masters in Islamic Studies from the Graduate Theological Foundation in Indiana. Sheikh Ra’ed served as Imam in many Masajid in Jordan and in the United States, including Masjid Al-Qassam in Tampa, FL. Sheikh Ra’ed has memorized the entire Qur'an, with the help of Allah and specializes in the knowledge of teaching the Tajweed of the Qur'an. His interest in the knowledge of Tajweed is what led him to recently develop his own non-profit organization called Tajweed Institute of Florida. Its goal is to certify students of the Qur’an enabling them to carry on this knowledge to future generations. He does this by offering academic seminars all over the U.S, and then following up with the participants and training them to get an Ijazah (certification).
