Growing up, Ahmad Zahiruddin suffered from bullying due to his condition, so his father made sure to choose a suitable place for his son to pursue his studies after SPM.

The decision to enroll his son into Darul Quran, made Ahmad Zahiruddin the first autistic student to be a part of the school – and it turned out to be the perfect move, or rather a blessing in disguise.
