A native of Afghanistan, Azima H. Abdul-Azim grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and earned her B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of California at Davis. She then studied Arabic, Fiqh and Hadith sciences at Zaytuna Institute. As her love of sacred knowledge grew, she and her husband traveled to Damascus, Syria for a year to study Arabic at the University of Damascus. While there, Azima also earned an ijaza in Tajweed (science of the proper recitation of the Qur’an) from the late Shaykh Muhiuddeen al Kurdi (r.a.).
After returning to the USA to raise her three children, she enrolled in Zaynab Institute’s online alimah program and earned her alimah degree in 2021. Azima has been teaching Qur’an, Fiqh and other Islamic sciences to children and adults for over 10 years in person and online for over 5 years. She now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and 3 children.
