Parent Testimonials:

"My children have been attending Iqra Academy for five months now, and I have already started to notice a significant difference in them. As a mother I struggle to give them a clear understanding of Islam that will allow them to accept and love their religion in a country where Muslims are a minority. Iqra Academy helped me do that.

It brought me great joy when my nine year old daughter, who used to always worry about wearing the head scarf (hijab) and refused to wear concealing clothes, asked me to buy her a hijab so she can be ready to wear it when she decides to. My seven and six year old sons, who used to complain about getting up to pray, now hurry to pray with us even if they are tired and in bed.

Before, it was always a challenge to get my children to memorize and read Quran with me. However, now, not only do they agree to recite Quran , but they are also interested about the meanings of the Quran verses. Our children need more Muslim role models in their lives, and Iqra Academy is the place to find them. I am proud of Iqra' s staff and of their devotion to teaching my children to love and practice their religion. Jazzakumu Allahu Khairan Iqra Academy."

"My son attended Sunday School since the age of 4. He has grown so much in the last 5 months at the Academy, more than he did in those early years. The teachers love what they do- and that makes a big difference. Our children cannot be taught the way we or our parents were taught. Iqra realizes that and has made the classes fun and engaging, grabbing the childrens attention. We would never go back to a sunday school environment again. The 3 days a week is such a big benefit.
