Nurul Yaqeen Islamic Foundation has pledged to provide affordable world-class islamic and formal education to indigent children in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The Director of the foundation, Imam Yahya Al-Yolawi, made the pledge at the foundation’s 4th Annual Qur’anic Graduation Walimah (ceremony), held in Abuja on Sunday.
He disclosed that the foundation had offered scholarship to 18 orphans to learn the recitation of the glorious Qur’an.
Al-Yolawi said that foundation was committed to equipped children and youths to be good Muslim ambassadors through academics and non-academic activities.
The cleric also said that the organisation was determined to be one of the five top best Islamic centres that serve humanity in FCT in terms of Islam and western education.
” It is a place where less privileged will be given attention to their religious, family, social and financial issues through lectures, skill acquisition and empowerment programmes.
” It is also a foundation where middle lower class can afford world class islamic education with little resources and leading Islamic school with quality and ICT-based Quran teaching and learning.”
The cleric explained that the mode of teaching in Nurul yaqeen at the initial stage of child’s learning was an individual approach to ensure that no child is left behind.
” From 2012 to date hundreds of students were able to learn how to read Quran and reading and writing Arabic text.
” Presently we have 25 graduating students and over 50 on our list as our next year 2024 target and vision. Some of them will complete their recitation of the Qur’an in the next few months.”
He commended parents for continuously enrolling their their children and encourage their family friends to bring their children to the school.
This, according to him, has led to appreciable increase in the total number of students in the school to 300 students.
He said with support of some individuals, the foundation had acquired a piece of land at plot 268 and it is currently erecting a mosque.
” We are also developing our school Permanent site with Nurul yaqeen little effort, individual donation, intervention from the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC).” (NAN) (www.nannews.ng
