"Ustadh Rakib was an amazingly instructor. His classes were always interactive and he never hesitated on reviewing materials we were struggling with even when we had so much to cover. He was far from being a monotonous teacher, and actually kept us engaged after a long day!"
"Ustadh Rakib and Abdullah were great teachers alhumdulilah! They were very helpful, took their time to explain the material, and attentive to everyone's specific learning needs."
