Iqra Leaning Centre is a voluntary community association run by a representative mix of local people. The trustees and other volunteers are primarily of professional backgrounds, ranging from undergraduates, teachers, IT specialists, accountants, right through to company directors.

The word Iqra has very special significance for Muslims as it is the first word of the revelation (The Holy Quran) which was sent from Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) via Angel Jibreel (Gabriel). The word simply means read or recite and it is also an invitation to learn and seek guidance from Allah as given in the Quran.

To date, Iqra has provided a place for Muslim brothers to pray, an accommodating place for people to learn about Islam, a friendly place for children to learn the Quran, and a bookshop/library. We currently have five daily prayers with Jamaat. Friday prayers are also held with separate prayer facilities for women .The library is also well-established and popular. Users can take out books at any time provided they put their name and the details of the book on the Borrowers List.

A project steering group is committed to realising a vision of having a ground breaking Islamic Centre Of Excellence in Coventry. This would include the current activities but would also enable inter-faith dialog, with events for all he community, including workshops, seminars, social events and open to all.
