It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“Seeking knowledge is a duty upon every Muslim”
The first revelation was ‘Iqraa’ or “Read”. We are asked to read the Quran so that we understand our religion, which in turn asks us to “keep” reading in order to extend our knowledge and be successful in life; it’s that simple, really!
As a measure to introduce learning through reading story books we have come up with our own Islamic School Library.
Our library at present has 134 books (which were bought from the money raised and books donated by the parents).
The books are being distributed among our 50+ students of the school. The students are expected to read the book and exchange for a different book next week. For the younger ones, we request the parents to help them with reading bedtime stories. Our library volunteers help us in keeping a record of the books.
If you wish to donate some of your own books please pass it to one of our school teachers.
