Sheikh Tawfik was living in Jeddah since his childhood, he learned Quran and got his basic education there and then he joined the University of Imam Mohammad Ben Saud for Islamic studies where he got his master's degree, then he got his PHD from Um AlQura University. His talent at Quran recitation and Khutbah (Friday sermons) was evident and obvious since 1992 as he worked as imam at many mosques in Jeddah, one of them was Lami Mosque where he was working before his deportation to Bahrain.

He is the head of Al-Hudah publishing house which published the whole Quran recorded by his voice. More ...
