Shaping the future of Islamic studies
We’re a lean team who believes in rethinking the landscape of Islamic education for the masses, especially in the times we live in today.
Principal and Founder
BA Arabic Language & Literature and Quran & Sunnah Studies, IIUM
Madrasah Al-Junied Al-Islamiah, Singapore.
From his days as a fire-rescuer to his wonderful start-up at Ahlan Academy, and from his 15 year experience of storytelling sessions with parents, kids & teens to addressing professionals on corporate stages, Mu’allim Faizul consistently presses the need to refresh and reorganize our view on Islamic Education. As the Principal, he handles the creative and visionary aspects of our team along with his teaching activities. To de-stress, Mu’allim Faizul creates random fancy poster designs and send puns to the group chat which so far has had a 50% chance of eliciting either a laugh or a sigh.
HR & FINANCE
The backbone of the company with a degree in Psychology and Minor in Mass Communication, Alya handles all finance matters as well as the design & content creation for our social media platforms. An admirable mother of 4, she enjoys dabbling in various projects and pushing herself to strive further and continuously improve. She is also responsible for maintaining Mu’allim Faizul’s sanity as his wife.
Creative Designer & Admin
A team member that unassumingly packs a punch. Interestingly , Atiqah has a master’s in Architecture from University Malaya! She now carries both our content creation and administrative work. If you’ve ever had a chat with us on WhatsApp or social media, this is the friendly human that you’ve been talking to who loves to use Lots! Of! Exclamation! Points! With her architecture experience, she occasionally designs the set and props for our onsite programs, while also earning her name as the most reliable one in the team for fixing unexpected issues along the way! Atiqah is also a proud mother to Abu, her handsome grey cat.
Marketing & Strategy
A bubbly personality and a recent Hijabi! Myra is an Arts and Social Science graduate from Monash University Malaysia majoring in Psychology with minors in Journalism and Global Studies. She is also… a former student at SoulDigest! Now, she helps out with the inner works and future direction of the company and has a hand in the creative direction of our brand too.
