Anse Dr. Marah Dahman grew up in Syria, where she studied Tafsir, Hadith, Tajweed and other Islamic sciences. She now lives in Tampa, FL, where in addition to working as a mom of three and a dentist, she teaches at her local masjid. Anse Marah was greatly influenced by her teachers in Syria, who she remembers as open, kind, patient and wise. “My teacher made things easy on us and put the world into perspective,” she said. “All our teachers spent so much time bringing us up. I am excited to be able to pay that debt forward by teaching at Ribaat.”
Anse Dr. Marah has been teaching Islamic sciences courses with Ribaat since its inception in 2013.
