“We praise Allah Glorified Be He, for the establishment of this blessed Academy that follows the Prophetic way, and nurtures by way of mercy and love upon the traditions and character of the beloved Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.

We ask Allah our Master to benefit the Ummah via this Academy and inspire and enable those working behind it with everything that it contains of bliss and success in both abodes.” Habib Khadhim Assagaff


I ask Allah the most generous to give them success in that which is good and pious, and to take them by their hands to what He is pleased with, and to place barakah in the Rawha Academy and to give the people who have established this academy and also those who work in it, an ability to perfect the role of responsibility and trust that is put upon them, and to give them a good reward for this pious pursuit.

And I also ask Allah to strengthen the ummah with more teachers and murabeen of goodness, and He is the one who we turn to in all of our affairs. And there is no success other than from Him. And there is no proclamation other than through him. And praise be to Allah lord of the worlds.

“The Rawha Academy is a great attempt to bring Sacred Learning to children from a young age maintaining the tradition of Islam.?May Allah accept the attempts of Bilal Ismail in this effort of his.”

The Rawha Academy has an excellent Saturday School that offers a complete and comprehensive future for our children in one inclusive programme.

My elders and beloved ones for the sake of Allah, may peace and blessings from Allah be upon you.?It is an honour and delight for me to write these words for the young individuals who are dedicated in serving Islam and Muslims, and have sacrificed their time in serving the Muslim children and presenting to them the essence of goodness. May Allah Ta’ala enable them to do that which is pleasing to Him and bless us all with inspiration out of His mercy and generosity.?May every year, month, week, day and moment bring us closer to Allah.?And finally, we ask Allah Ta’ala for ability, guidance, sincerity and acceptance in word and action.

Praise be to Allah and salutations be upon his prophet his family and companions and those after them. The Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “A morning or an evening spent in the path of Allah Ta’ala is better than the world and everything it contains.”
What is present in the majalis Arawha is higher than the dunya and whatever is in it and it’s purpose and effort is heavenly. The angels of the heavens participate in this with their characteristics and actions. May Allah (SWT) give you success and help you and make you of the inheritors of the prophet peace and blessings be upon him.

I ask Allah to place blessings in the Rawha Academy which is a place of concern for the future and a hope for our nation. And verily in these academy’s is a lifeboat, which saves us from the waves of tribulations. May Allah aid you and make firm your footsteps.

The Rawha Academy is a unique project in the heart of Bradford which combines the tradition study of Islamic Sciences with extra curricular activities that are desperately needed to engage our youth.

I urge all parents to give their children the opportunity to benefit from the Prophetic environment provided at the Rawha Academy.?May Allah bless and give sincerity to everyone involved in bringing the Rawha Academy to the community.

This is a groundbreaking initiative for our young children, Teaching the next generation the prophetic way in an engaging manner.
