In summer 1996 Kamal boarded an Islamic school in Bolton called Al Jamia-Al Islamiyya. He studied a course to memorise the whole Noble Qur’an. During the month of Ramadan in November 2000 halfway through his course, sadly his father Haji Malkas Ali passed away. By the grace of Allah at the end of 2001 Kamal finished his course and became a qualified Hafiz. Immediately after, The Hyde Jamia Mosque offered him to lead the next Ramadan prayers. At the time Kamal was only 17 years old. Having been successful he was offered to teach children at the Islamic Centre based in the Mosque and also to lead and call people to prayers.

In September 2002 Kamal boarded Jamia Al-Karam in Retford to study Arabic grammar. After a year he returned back to Hyde Jamia Mosque to carry on his duties there.

Knowing at an early age his talent in reciting the Qur’an and singing Nasheeds, he opened a Nasheed class where young children can enjoy learning about Islam by singing Nasheeds and also a separate Hafiz class so he can teach others to memorise the Noble Qur’an like himself.

During January 2005, Kamal took his mother to Saudi Arabia, to perform the largest Islamic pilgrimage – Hajj. Having been inspired from his Hajj experience, Kamal started to compose his own lyrics for his first album. This was launched in August 2005 and became a huge success gaining Kamal his recognition as a Nasheed Artist after performing at the 1st Global Peace and Unity Event organised by the Islam Channel.

In May 2006, due to heavy demand from his listeners all over the world, Record Label IQRA Promotions signed him up and released his second Album ‘Illallah’.
