Imam Kamil Mufti devoted himself to years of rigorous study of Aqeeda, tafsir, hadith, fiqh, and the Arabic language that took him from the deserts of Mauritania to the streets of old Cairo, among others. He holds formal ijaza in recitation of Hafs ‘an ‘Aasim through Sheikh Ahmad al-Kulaini, one of the shortest isnads in the world to the Prophet PBUH. He holds formal ijaza to transmit fiqh and all major books of hadith with some of the shortest isnads from Sheikh Tihami bin Muhammad al-Tijani of Ribat, Morocco and Sheikh Walid Idris al-Misri. The Imam studied different texts on Islamic creed with scholars including Sheikh Hasan al-Homaid, a former mufti of Qatar. His foremost teacher was Sheikh al-Murabit Salim al-Addood as-Shinqiti.
