She received her ijaza in tajwid from Ustadha Arwa Khallad in Amman with a full sanad. She is currently studying tasawwuf under the tutelage of Shaykh Hisham Kabbani, as well as pursuing studies in tafsir, Hanafi fiqh and kalam under the guidance of scholars.

In the future Rawdah hopes to work with manuscripts and edit texts. She has a keen interest in the Ottoman intellectual tradition and is excited to explore the unchartered territory of Istanbul manuscript libraries. Rosabel lives in Washington D.C. with her husband.
