‘Olive Secondary is an Islamic School in Bradford for both Boys and Girls in separate facilities.' Olive Secondary is open to both Muslim and non-Muslim students. ' The school was founded in recognition of the need for the provision of a broad system of educational excellence; one that would meet the demands of parents who want their children to be equipped with the necessary skills and moral qualities to prepare them for tomorrow’s world. This is verified by the saying of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, which is narrated by Amr ibn Sa’id (or Sa’id ibn al-Aas) that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: A Parent Gives Their Child Nothing Better Than A Good Education (Collected by Tirmidhi and Bayhaqi)
" إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَالَ إِذَا تَلَقَّانِي عَبْدِي بِشِبْرٍ تَلَقَّيْتُهُ بِذِرَاعٍ وَإِذَا تَلَقَّانِي بِذِرَاعٍ تَلَقَّيْتُهُ بِبَاعٍ وَإِذَا تَلَقَّانِي بِبَاعٍ أَتَيْتُهُ بِأَسْرَعَ "
Indeed Allah said: When My servant draws close to me by the span of a palm, I draw close to him by the space of a cubit, and when he draws close to Me by the space of a cubit, I draw close to him by the space (covered) by two hands, and when he draws close to Me by the space (covered by) two hands, I go in hurry towards him. [Sahih Muslim 2675]
