Iqra Basic Sch got its name from the first word of the first revelation to the noble Prophet Muhammad (May Aah be pleased with Him) Q: 96 V1-5 which means “READ”. The school was established in 1998 in a rented apartment along Olorunshogo area of Adewole. The school started with a total of fourteen (14) pupils with the sole aim of providing sound Islamic and Western Education for Muslim children in Nigeria and other part of the world.
