• Being a hafidh, graduating with the best results is mind-blowing, says Ismail
• Be yourself, sustain standards – Dr. Adeniyi
Saturday, August 20, 2022 is a day of celebration at Vanguards Academy, Odosengulu, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, as the school graduated a total of 96 students who have completed their secondary education.
The number, Muslim News gathered, is the highest in the history of the faith-based school, founded on September 28, 2002 to provide comprehensive education for academic excellence and intellectual supremacy.
Besides, eight among the graduate students completed the memorisation of the Noble Qur’an, while three have committed to memory the popular 40 Hadith in the Collection of Imam An-Nawawi.
They are Yahya Muaz, Maryam Shuaib-Osunleke, Lukman Maryam Asake, Huseinah Ettu, Najiyyah AbdurRahman, Khadijah Oyesanmi, Fayruz Adams and AbdurRahman Ismail, who also memorised 40 Hadith of An-Nawawi, alongside two others; Abdullahi Gabadeen and Umar Abdulganiy.
AbdurRahman Ismail, a science student emerged with outstanding results in the West African Senior School Certificate (WASSCE) and scored 345 in the 2022 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination, representing the second best in the history of the school.
Ismail was the cynosure of all eyes as he mounted the podium and recited the Qur’an with a melodious voice.
Clad in Arabian traditional attire, the 17-year-old Ismail described the feeling of graduating as “interesting, thrilling and mind-blowing”.
He added, “Allah really assisted me a lot and AlhamduliLlah for the accomplishment. It requires a lot of sacrifices and I tried to create time”.
Also speaking with Muslim News, the Chairman, Management Board, Dr. Zafaran Adeniyi described the 2022 graduation as unique and an identifying factor for the students.
“There is this kind of solidarity among them. Secondly, we have about eight hufadh, three memorisers of Hadith, too. A student from this set also had the second best WAEC result in the history of the school,” he added.
The renowned author of multiple Islamic books called on the graduands to be themselves, sustain the standard and maintain what they have learned.
