Imam Zameer Ikraam Sattaur was born in Georgetown, Guyana in 1966. From a young age, he displayed a keen interest in Islamic studies and embarked on a journey of learning under the tutelage of local Imams and community leaders. His commitment and passion for knowledge led him to be selected as a representative for Guyana in the World Quran Competition in 1982, where he had the privilege of entering the Kaabah and receiving the Kiswa from the Governor of Makkah al Mukarramah. This remarkable experience further fueled his dedication to Islamic scholarship.
Imam Zameer’s thirst for knowledge brought him to the prestigious Islamic University of Madinah, where he pursued higher education and immersed himself in the teachings of renowned scholars such as Shaykh Muhammad Alawi al-Maliki al-Hasani. His time at the university enhanced his understanding of Islamic principles and prepared him for a lifelong commitment to serving the Muslim community.
