IQRA' International Educational Foundation, is a pioneer in Islamic education and interfaith dialogue, has now out excelled itself in the development (in progress) of its new revised version of Primary level books, which are well establshed in Islamic schools and have already scored high marks. Almost four decades have passed when in 1968, as students of Harvard, the idea of producing a program of education for the small, new and nascent Islamic community, was mooted and thinking about starting such a Project . There were no books or schools then; IQRA' pioneers initiated the process of thinking and articulating to respond to that need and over the time provided an excellent research organization and a comprehensive, integrated and systematic program of Islamic studies, covering all subjects, and all grade levels and all the genre of educational literature, for the week-end Islamic Muslim student population, which came from abroad was planning to return to their homeland after the completion of their education. Muslim community has developed since through both conversion and immigration and now, alhamdulillah, has almost three hundered full-time schools and over two thousand part-time schools. The demnd from the full-time schools is to have for more material to cover the semesters and the requirement from part-time schools is more streamlined guidance for the lay volunteer teachers who are in general well qualified in their own disciplines but have little or no knowldge of educational methodology or teaching experience in Islamic subjects.

The revision of IQRA' educational system is designed to bring this Program to fulfill the present requirements of both catagories of Islamic schools and to respond to the challenges emanating from the developments within Muslim community, American society and international environment.

IQRA' s recent effort to develop an integrated Madrasah/High School Program for Singapore, which combines Islamic studies with national academic curricula, reresents the highest level of educational achievements. Majis Islam (MUIS) has already started implementing the program in Singapore Madaris and IQRA' is planning to contextulize it and publish it for Islamic schools in USA and abroad. The Program covers Syllabi, textbooks, workbooks, teacher's manuals, teachers and administrator's manuals and packages for teachers evaluation and training. It is the most comprehensive Program ever envisaged, designed or implemented.

Both the American society, which provides environment, freedoms, sharing of experiences and its resources and Muslims who have a commitment to the Islamic and American future of our children, to live in peace and harmony as creative citizens and neighbors, must be commended for these achievements that one day may be recognized as the richest gift that our community and country has provided to the world of Islam. Al-hamdu lillah
