Full-time Islamic schools are the most recent phenomenon of the Islamic education movement and represent a shift towards a more comprehensive approach towards preserving Islamic identity for the community at large, and for the children more specifically. The mission of full-time Islamic schools can be along two tracks: defensive and proactive. The defensive line strives to shield and protect the children from harmful influences that are antithetical to the Islamic system. The proactive line seeks to nurture the intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual growth of Muslim children with the hope of producing confident, competent individuals who can contribute positively without compromising their Islamic beliefs and practices.

The best-selling point for IQRA Basic, to me, has been the successful grooming of the pupils in Qur’an recitation, which made them very eloquent at such tender ages. I have two girls of ages 6 and 9, respectively and sometimes, I marvel at, and even wonder, how it was possible to get them to such an incredible level of mastery in the recitation of the Qur’an, so early in life, more so that this was achieved alongside their regular western education. For me, this is no mean feat to attain, by any standard. I therefore congratulate the Management of the school for the laudable contribution to the development of the pupils’ spiritual beings and their humanity in general. I urge the Management to uphold the enviable standard with the goal of reaching even greater heights soon. Thank you.

Testimonies is about truth and fact as one sees it. I can attest to the fact Iqra basic in the eye of many is one of the modest schools in the city and can compete favorably well with her peers. Other schools are catching up. IQRA Basic school is one of the best schools in Kwara State. It is a discipline school. It is a school that inculcates discipline to the pupils. Most of the pupils that graduated from IQRA Basic are leading in their various secondary schools. Pupils of IQRA School are future leaders. etc.
