Za’iem Al-Hadi Bin Sallim
Za’iem is the founder and director of Al-Hadi Learning Centre.
After successfully completing his O’levels in Temasek Secondary School in the year 1997, he pursued his education in Temasek Polytechnic & graduated with Diploma In Business.
While undergoing his academic school, Za’iem had to juggle his time between his Islamic & academic studies. He started his Al-Quran memorization since Secondary 3 & upon following the advice of his teacher, Ustaz Firdaus Bin Yahya, he joined the Tahfiz Programme in Darul Quran Singapore @ Kampung Siglap Mosque as the first cohort of students and completed the memorization of the whole Quran in the year 2006.
He attended Islamic classes regularly, particularly classes of his father, Ustaz Sallim Bin Jasman, and Tafsir & Fiqh classes of the late Al-Marhum Ustaz Syed Abdillah Bin Ahmad Al-Jufri. He also attended Arabic classes & completed the 5 years of part-time Islamic course from Pergas with Certificate in Islamic Studies (Sijil Pengajian Islam Pergas – SPI). After his completion of Al-Quran memorization in 2006, he started his teaching journey by teaching tahfiz Al-Quran for a year in 2007 at Ar-Rabitah Mosque.
On top of that, Za’iem also studied Islamic treatment of spiritual disturbances & sihr (black magic) under the guidance of Ustaz Prof. Dr.Jumadi Bin Mustar for a few years and was granted permission from his teacher to conduct healing/treatment sessions, as well as permission to teach the subject.
Za’iem has also been active in volunteering work ever since he was a youth. He was a member of the Syabab youth wing of Kampung Siglap Mosque during his schooling years. He gained a lot of learning experiences especially from his senior peers who helped & guided him on managing & conducting programmes for youth development like motivational workshops, camps & self-development.
He is also the founder and webmaster of an Islamic website, www.CeramahIslam.com, which was launched in the year 2004. Alhamdulillah, with the grace and help from Allah, the website has been beneficial to many people especially to local Singaporean Muslims.
In the year 2008, he left for Cairo, Egypt, with his wife to continue with their Arabic studies. All praises be to Allah, on top of that they were blessed with an invaluable experience to be able to study personally with Syeikh Dr. Muhammad Syed Shufti, an Egyptian scholar from Al-Azhar University.
Besides studying while in Cairo, Za’iem also allocated his time to help out treating students with spiritual disturbances. He was also invited to give a talk at the Students’ Assembly House of Johor @ Hayyu Raba’ah, Cairo, on the dangers of spiritual disturbances & sihr (black magic) and ways to overcome them according to the Quran & Sunnah.
Upon returning to Singapore from Cairo in 2010, Za’iem continued with his teaching of tahfiz Al-Quran at Sekolah Tahfiz Ugama Radin Mas from August 2010 to April 2011, and continue teaching the subject at Darul Quran Singapore & Darul Huffaz Learning Centre.
In 2013 he completed his Diploma In Syariah Islamiyyah with Kolej University Islam Melaka (KUIM).
In 2015, he registered Ceramahislam.com as a formal registered entity, running Islamic courses catering mainly for Muslim adults in Singapore. The company currently employs 5 full-time staff/teachers and a few part-time teachers, who have been helping to spread da’wah & provide Islamic education to the community. It has since been renamed as ‘Al-Hadi Learning Centre’ in July 2017.
