The Prophet (saw) has said “Each of you is a shepherd and you will be questioned regarding your flock”

From the above it is understood that we as parents and educators have been entrusted with a very important responsibility towards our children. Consequently, it is our duty to fulfil the trust to the best of our ability. The most important need for our children is to appreciate the sayings from our Prophet Mohammed (saw), “The seeking of Knowledge is Fardh (compulsory) on every muslim”.

  • It is a parental choice for LIA pupils to attend on a daily basis. A small number of pupils attending the madrassa are not pupils at the LIA School.
  • There is also an agreement between the Manager, class teacher and the individual parents about the part time pupils attending.
