Bilal Dannoun was born in Lebanon on the tenth of November 1973 and arrived to Sydney, Australia, when he was just three months old. He had a burning desire to learn Allah's religion from a very early age. This desire drove him to attend almost all of the limited number of lessons that were on offer in Sydney at that time.
Bilal completed high school education locally, and thereafter gained entry into a Bachelor's degree in languages, where he majored in Arabic and English. Bilal complemented this knowledge of the Arabic language by putting himself under the direct tutelage of some of the most respected Sheikhs of Sydney.
Bilal completed his degree with exceptional results and was held in high regard by his professors and peers alike for his ability to understand and apply classical Arabic. His drive to gain Islamic knowledge led him to travel numerous times to the Middle East where he benefited from a number of its scholars.
