Born in Accra, Ghana, Alhassan started his education in Ghana and rose through the levels of education till he entered into the University of Ghana in 2005. He completed his BA with a major in Arabic and Study of religions. He returned to the same university in 2013 for his Masters of Philosophy degree which he successfully completed in 2015. As he wanted to deepen his knowledge in Islamic studies and to be able to address the contemporary challenges facing Muslims, especially in Ghana, he applied to the Hamad Bin Khalifa University to read Masters in Islamic Studies. He was admitted in 2017 and offered Islamic Thought and Applied Ethics as his concentration. God willing, he will be graduating this May. He has been the president of the students’ council for the 2018/19 academic year and has served in many capacities as his contribution to the University.
