He also served as a member in the Committee of Testing and Examining Recitations of Imams in Zarqaa (Jordan). He founded al-Asaalah Magazine along with a group of scholars and worked as Chief Editor for it until the 20th issue.

He obtained various ijaazahs (religious approbations) on Recitation and Hadeeth from a group of scholars, including 'Ataa-ullaah Haneef, Badi'-ud-Din As-Sindhi, the Muhaddith of Sindh, and others. And he held a close companionship with the Savant, the Muhaddith, Muhammad Nasir ad-Din al-Albani, from the early seventies (1970's) until his death (in 1999). This is such that he would always attend his educational gatherings and he would constantly frequent his home time and again to take from his knowledge.

He has been working here since 1993. He has written dozens of books, some of which are printed and some not. He has also written numerous articles that appeared in newspapers and magazines.

The shaykh participated in Islamic conferences and conventions in North America, Canada and United Kingdom while also participating in lectures and seminars. He has also traveled to Guyana, Trinidad, France, Bahrain and numerous other places in order to spread the Salafi Da'wah. He has taught in the first two Islamic Seminars of the Salafi Society of North America in NY, USA, and a similar seminar in London, England. He has also been attending the annual QSS conventions for the past several years, and thus he has a large number of tapes available in the English language (translated). He is also a member of the Society of Herbal Medicines in Jordan and a member of the Board of Directors in the New York based "Salafi Society of North America." For the past twenty years, he has been providing treatment and cures for spiritual sicknesses, such as possession, sorcery, the evil eye, and epilepsy. He has a great concern for the subject of prophetic medicine, and he has many lectures on that with regard to herbal medicines. Allah has benefited and cured many people through him, and this is only by Allah's Grace.
