Imam Ahmad Deeb has been serving communities from a very young age, with specialized focus in mosque consultancy, counseling, and public speaking.

He grew up in Orlando, FL to a family of scholars. His father was an Imam and scholar for 35 years while being one of the main authorities in Qur’anic recitation in the world; his mother was an educator. His grandfather, Shaykh Ramadan Deeb, is one of the oldest living scholars in Syria.

While inheriting this beautiful legacy, Imam Deeb also inherited a deep love for study and service. He began under the tutelage of his father and was able to develop a mastery of Qur’anic recitation. Initially deciding to enter medicine, and after receiving his degree in Psychology at the age of 19, he took a year off to serve as a youth coordinator in Michigan. His interest changed and instead of medicine, he decided to focus on Islamic studies and community building.

This took him to Cape Town, South Africa for a full-time study of the Islamic tradition, graduating with a degree in Usul al-Deen. He returned to deepen his study with local scholars in America and to begin serving again. He spent a year helping to develop an intentional community in Allentown, PA and then moved to Ohio as the Director of the Islamic Society of Akron and Kent for two years while completing a Masters in Islamic Studies at Bayan Claremont, CA. He then founded Itqaan Institute, an online learning platform specializing in cultivating a mastery of Qur’anic learning from the experts under the supervision and directorship of his father who is the main teacher.

He now happily serves as the Imam and Religious Director at the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo. In his free time, he provides consulting to mosques across the country with his company and also travels frequently for community development programs and serves as the Outreach Ambassador for Bayan Claremont, the first graduate school for Islamic Studies and Chaplaincy in the country. He believes the biggest problem in the modern world is one of connection and loneliness; hence, his greatest passion lies in cultivating love and community through education, service, and mindful spiritual devotion.
