Indian Muslim Association (IMA) in coordination with the Islamic Presentation committee of Kuwait conducted a Felicitation function for the Summer Islamic classes (SIC) 2017 on Friday 24th November 2017 at ICSK, Senior Branch Auditorium, Salmiya. The event received an overwhelming response as the venue was completed packed with parents and children attending the program.
The program commenced with the recitation of Quran by Maser Mohammed and its translation was narrated by Master Mahmoud and urdu translation by Ms. Zainab Jaffar.
The program was attended by Arabic guest “Abdul latif Almunaifi” from Jamatul Islah and “Abu Anas” from Islamic Presentation Committee whereby they praised IMA for its efforts to conduct such religion and social events in order to uplift the betterment of the muslim ummah and society. One of the chief guest attributed the importance of memorizing quran and those parents who make their children memorize the wonderful book (quran) will be worn a crown on the day of judgment.
The Vice President of IMA Br. Sharafuddin Soofi delivered a welcome speech whereby he proclaimed the importance of educating the children up to 18 years of age. In this part of the world, it’s practice followed by the expatriates to send the children after 18 years of age out of the country (Kuwait) to pursue higher education. Hence the parents have the opportunity only up to said number of years to cultivate discipline, manners, religious ethics in the child after which the child is left upon to practice those beliefs in his individual life. IMA provides an opportunity for the parents to elucidate their children in both religion and worldly aspects.
The principal of Summer Islamic classes “Br. Jamal Jaffar” delivered a speech where he informed on the initiative taken by eminent persons of IMA like Mr. Khaleelullah Khan who started SIC in 1994 and thereafter the classes was run successfully for 17 years.

Rizwan Danish who were instrumental in setting up syllabus, transport arrangements, and other administrative aspects of the school.

The students were taken to field trips like Hawally Park and Tareq Rajab museum in Jabriya. All these was successful due to the teaching staff, Mr. Farooq Khan, the vice Principal Mrs. Tabassum and off course the support staff who performed the job with utmost sincerity and dedication.
