Commending the awardee, Olayiwola, a senior pharmaceutical staff with the Lagos State Government, tasked other well meaning Muslims to emulate Ajakaye, adding that everyone, no matter the position has a duty to the society.
The school, founded on the principle of sound British and Islamic Curricula, graduated five pupils with mastery of Qur’an recitation. They are; Rofeequr Adeola-Yusuf; Mazeedah Badmus; and Shukroh Anthony.
Others are Zainab Aderibigbe and Muzeedatulkhaer Ogunbiyi.
Ajakaye, in a reaction to the recognition, tasked Muslims parents to resuscitate the culture of Qur’an recitation in their children.
“One of the key requirements for better living is sound understanding of the words of Allah, the Holy Qur’an. So, what we are witnessing today at this school is a sign that we still have people who are deeply interested in training children that will be sound in both British and Islamic curricula.
“My advice to parents is that we should all resuscitate the culture of Qur’an recitation in all our children by sending them to schools that operate on quality British and Islamic curricula.
“Therefore what the school is doing by including Qur’an classes in the timetable is a great effort at placing our children and society on strong pedestal of morality and sound academics,” he concluded.
Also, the Proprietor of the School, Hajia Fateemah Adeola-Yusuf urged Muslims to become partakers in the revival and preservation of a dying legacy of Islam, the mastery of recitation of the Holy Qur’an, as part of the necessary steps at ensuring that the society is peopled by learned and righteous individuals.
