“Without peace and harmony, you cannot even practice your religion and this is the time when each and everyone of us should put the country first above everything.”

The JIBWIS leader also urged parents and guardians to take the issue of their children seriously and ensure that they memorise and understand the holy book.

Earlier, the Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Qur’an school, Retired Maj.-Gen. Abdullahi Mamman, said “Islam emphasises the importance of seeking for knowledge in the life of every believer.

“Islam has directed Muslims to seek for knowledge no matter how far it is because knowledge is power and it is only when you have knowledge that you will gainfully manage your life.”

The school Headmaster, Malam Muhammad Ahmed, said in addition to memorisation of Holy Qur’an, the graduates also excelled in various Qur’an recitation competitions within and outside the FCT.

He said the graduation ceremony of the 35 students was a pointer to the successful achievements of the school’s objectives, aimed at producing children with higher moral consciousness at early years of their development.

A father of three female graduates, Alhaji Mas’ud Bashar, the Director, Diamond Global Engineering Investment Ltd., expressed joy for being alive to witness three of his children memorise the entire verses of the Holy Qur’an.

He said “for my three daughters to memorise the Holy Qur’an, you can imagine the kind of pleasure that one can think of. So, I’m very happy. In fact today is one of my best days on earth.”

Hajara Bello, aged 17, who spoke on behalf of the graduates, thanked her parents and teachers for the support to her Qur’an education.

“All I can say is thanks to Almighty Allah, my parents and teachers,” she added. (NAN)
