Congratulation by Rector of Bolgar Islamic Academy on International Education Day
Dear teachers, colleagues and students!
Congratulations on International Education Day!
The UN General Assembly proclaimed this important holiday in recognition of the role of education in ensuring peace and development of human civilization. The call for acquisition and dissemination of knowledge is one of the fundamental tenets of Islam. Said in Holy Quran: “Seek knowledge by asking those who know if you don’t know” (Sura al-Anbya, “Prophets,” ayah 7). Hundreds of hadiths call us to acquire knowledge, to strive for it.
The mission of our Academy lies in research and educational activities. We work for the benefit of the entire Russian muslim ummah, at the same time we strive to ensure an international level of quality for the results of our work.
