Education opens your mind and heart

Islam commands all of us, both individually and collectively, to seek knowledge. In the glorious era where Muslims were trendsetters for the rest of civilisation, history tells us that the sole reason for our rise is proper and sound Islamic education and upbringing.

PROPHET MUHAMMAD Peace be upon him SAID
“The Seeking of Knowledge is Compulsory for Every Muslim”
