Shahreen’s journey in Quran recitation began around 2006, when she started attending classes to improve her Quran recitation and tajweed. In 2013, she received a sanad/ijaza in the complete Quran recitation from Sheikh Youcef Bensalah (Algeria), and in 2017 she received a sanad in the Jazariyyah Poem from Sheikh Isam Rajab (Syria). She is currently studying the recitation of Riwayah Shu’bah under Sheikh Youcef Bensalah.
She has been teaching on a part time basis at Yayasan Ta’lim since 2013, and is continuously attending classes to improve both her recitation, and memorisation of the Quran. She is a graduate of the University of Nottingham, UK, and qualified as an ICAEW accountant in 2000. In her spare time, being a fan of muay thai/kick boxing, she occasionally has sparring sessions with her nephew.
