In 2001, after completing his Bachelor of Sharia (Honours) at Mu’tah University, Jordan, Hasrizal’s academic achievements led him to secure a pioneering role as the first Minister of Religion at the Belfast Islamic Centre, Northern Ireland, funded by the Al-Maktoum Foundation, UAE. This role marked a significant step in his career, intertwining his educational pursuits with practical religious leadership. His experience expanded further through specialised training in learning, education, and technology in Oulu, Finland. Hasrizal’s engagement with the Khalifah Education Foundation in Malaysia significantly contributes to the pedagogical advancement of Khalifah Model Schools. These schools are establishing themselves as leading institutions in progressive schooling, centred on character education under the ethos of “Shaping Excellent Character”. Between 2018 and 2019, he was acknowledged for his expertise by being appointed to the National Education Policy Review Committee (JKDPN) by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Despite some academic hurdles including five uncompleted theses, Hasrizal’s dedication to knowledge sharing is evident in his authorship of 28 books, many were national bestsellers. He regards his ADHD not as a barrier but as a distinctive advantage, energising his spontaneous, risk-taking entrepreneurial initiatives and creativity, transforming challenges into valuable experiences.
