Alif was born in
Bazbina on the 9th of November 1938. He continued his studies at the
Lebanese University in Beirut to earn a License in Chemistry in 1962
after which he taught in the subject for many years to retire in 2002.
He was active in the Orthodox Youth Movement in Beirut and started a
Sunday School in Bazbina as early as 1954.
Although retired from
teaching, yet he is involved in a great and tedious research in the
Christian Faith – from Creation onward. So far, he completed 300 pages
in detailed work that he intends to publish it soon.
