Waseem-Ahmed Bin-Kasim was born in Wa, the Upper West Region of Ghana. He grew up and completed his basic education in Wa. He attended Tamale Secondary school and later, the University of Ghana, where he graduated with a Master of Philosophy in History. Waseem-Ahmed is now pursuing PhD in African history at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

So far, He has approached African history by examining how Muslims spread their faith in Northwestern Ghana as a social and ideological force. Additionally, Waseem-Ahmed has studied the Ahmadiyya Muslim Movement and its initiatives towards modern development. His long-term goal is to study the subject of Muslims in sub- Saharan Africa and their experience of changes emanating from the Middle East, Europe and the Americas in the modern period.

In the framework of RIMA, Waseem-Ahmed will mainly deal with the Ahmadiyyah movement in Ghana, West Africa, and the whole of Africa as well as the relationship between the Ahmadiyyah movement and Sunni Muslims throughout Africa.
