  • Ismail Khan
    Karimia's Quran school is vital to my child's all-round education especially in terms of their Islamic education and their upbringing as good Muslims. As well as learning Arabic, they learn respect to elders, family, friends, neighbours and their local community.

  • Sister Asma
    A truly special place. You feel the warmth as soon as you enter the front doors. The children are happy and I have seen them grow emotionally, physically and educationally over the years. The staff are very competent and caring professionals who treat each child as if they were their own.

  • Jamal Yousaf
    My children greatly benefited from Karimia's Quran School. They have learnt how to read the Quran properly, learnt all the duas and even know their meanings. Thank you Karimia and all those who work and volunteer there.

    Karimia's Quran school ensures that good values are instilled in our children whilst their character is being moulded. We pray that this helps the children of the school to mature into global citizens who make the world proud.
