He then travelled to Syria in 2007 were he spent three years completing his studies. There he sat in the classes with some of the greatest scholars of Damascus including Shaykh Said Ramadan al-Buti and Shaykh Usama Rifa’i. He studied with many scholars particularly Shaykh Muhammad Jum’ah, Shaykh Adnan Darwish and Shaykh Abdul Hakim Uthman.
