I have got my early education in a well reputed oriental institution Jameatul Falah, Azamgarh, where I have studied most of my course books in Arabic language apart from the Quran and Hadith and acquired my Almiat and Fazilat degrees which are equaling +2 and BA courses of Aligarh Muslim University. After that I joined the AMU to continue my higher studies in Arabic language and literature and successfully completed my BA (Hons), MA, Mphil and PhD courses in Arabic with excellence and distinction as I am recipient of Gold Medal in MA (Arabic). I am the first student of the Department of Arabic who qualified the NET &JRF of UGC just after passing my MA course.
I joined the department of Arabic as Assistant Professor in 1991 and became Associate Professor in 1997. I have been always actively engaged with teaching and research work in Arabic as I had completed a Research Project of Education Ministry during my Post Graduate course. I have concentrated myself on the Arabic literature developed during medieval and Modern periods as My Mphil work is on the contributions of the great critic and literary figure of modern Arabic Literature Dr.Shauqi Dhaif of Egypt and my Ph.D. work is on the topic of-A Comparative Study of Modern and Medieval Trends in Arabic Literary Criticism. I have participated in various workshops organized by UGC, UPSC, and other universities for the preparation of different courses for Arabic teaching as well as for the competitive examinations of Graduate and Post Graduate level. I have been Examiner, Paper setter and Moderator of Afzalul Ulma and Post Afzalul Ulma courses of the Calicut University of Kerala for many years. I have been engaged as Expert of Arabic Language for the confidential work of UGC NET Bureau since 2005.
I have guided a number of Research Scholars in the department and five of them have successfully completed their work and awarded Ph.D. degrees to them and other four scholars are engaged with the work under my guidance. A number of books, monographs and research papers in Arabic and Urdu languages have been published in various academic and literary national journals. I have participated and delivered lectures in various Arabic Refresher Courses of UGC organized in different universities as Resource Person, as well as I myself also organized three Refresher Courses in the department as Coordinator.
I have attended a number of National and International Seminars held in different universities, where I have presented papers and presided over the sessions.
