He said, “Let your children acquire Islamic education; teach them about the Holy Quran, the Hadith, and you are sure that they will take the right path.’’ He also advised Islamic clerics to ensure that their teachings were based on the holy books in order to disabuse the minds of people associating Islam with violence.
He explained that, “Islam is a religion of peace that preaches peace, harmonious relations even with those that are not Muslims. So the clerics should pass such teachings exactly as they are to their students.’’
He congratulated the graduating students, saying most of them had completed the memorisation of many parts of the Quran.
One of the graduating students, Raqeebah Salihu, commended the school for providing not only Quranic recitation lessons, but complete Islamic education, and so urged children, especially girls, to acquire Islamic knowledge.
