Welcome – Principal’s Message
Dear Parents/Guardians of Iqra Islamic School
All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the seen and the unseen. It is he who we seek in times of hardship and times of ease.
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I think it is safe to say that this is already a year unlike any other. The ongoing pandemic has presented us with totally unprecedented challenges. And though this has been difficult on adults all over the world, the challenge it has presented to children is beyond imagination. Never in our wildest dreams that our children would be subject to such difficult and stringent circumstances.
It is with our children in mind that Iqra Islamic School has gone to such great lengths to not only ensure that children are safe this school year, but also that this year is joyful, exciting, and altogether successful.
Already, 2020 is proving to be our biggest year. For the first time ever, Iqra Islamic School has over 500 students. Alhamdulillah, we now represent over 300 families made up of dozens of nationalities. Our school is truly a microcosm of the ummah of Muhammed (saw).
This year, Iqra Islamic School has made major improvements including the purchase of a mobile computer lab and a significant upgrade to the wifi infrastructure.
Naturally, we have also invested considerable resources to help stop the spread of covid-19. If you would like a more detailed summary of the work we have done please read through our 2020-2021 Back to School Plan.
May Allah make this a successful and safe year for Iqra Islamic School and our ummah at large.
With my sincerest duaa,
Randa A. El-Khatib
