Our Identity

Our Background

By looking at the life experience and words of the wisdom of great personalities in our history, we can clearly see that involvement in education and acquiring useful knowledge is one of the most important aspects in our life.

The first revelation to the final Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) was the word “Iqra” (Read). Almighty Allah has commanded our Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) in Surah Al-‘Alaq to seek knowledge as He says: “Read in the name of your Lord Who created.  He created man from a clot. Read and your Lord is the Most Honorable. Who taught by the pen. Taught man what he knew not.” (Qur’an 96:1-5).

It is a duty of every person in this world to seek useful knowledge and help others in this way so that they may gain success in both worlds by following the footsteps of the Prophet Muhammad  (Peace and blessings be upon him) as he said: “Whoever follows a path in pursuit of knowledge, Allah makes his way easy to paradise.” (Narrated by Imam Bukhari)


There are so many great Muslim scientists in our history who taught generation after generation globally in different fields of the knowledge such as Al-Khwarizmi (Algoritmi) (780-850), Muslim mathematician and astronomer, Al-Farabi (Alpharabius) (870–950), Muslim philosopher and one of the pre-eminent thinkers of Islam in the Middle Ages, Ibn Sina (Avicenna) (980-1037), a great physician and philosopher. Ibn Rushd (Averroes), (1126-1198) and so many others.

It is the duty and responsibility of the community to educate the younger generation and assist them to be involved in learning and studying, because they are our future and if we are able to assist them today they will be able to chance the life of the people towards the happiness in the near future and make this world happier,  (Can we say this better?) as Abu Nasr Al-Farabi said “If you want to see the future of the country, look at its youth”. The former South African President Nelson Mandela said: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Unfortunately nowdays we see our youth and so many children, nationally and internationally, struggling in getting an education and as a result they are unable to build their futures through learning and studying in schools, colleges and universities.

Bearing in mind the difficult condition of those children and youth, Dr. Asadullah Karimov with the group of some professional educators were compelled to find a solution. With this great purpose, International Knowledge Foundation was established on 23 July 2020, centered at Christoburg, Centurion Pretoria, South Africa. The foundation is registered as a Non Profit Company (NPC), number 2020/579603/08 by the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission of South African Government at Pretoria city on Friday, 24 July 2020.

Vision & Mission

Our Vision

It is know that learning and involvement in pure useful knowledge will guide us to value the life of people and to create safe and happy society, which is one of the most important purposes of our life. By observing the opinions of the historical personalities, who were involved in learning and practising the pure general knowledge in their life we will find that the purpose of creation in particular by the Creator, Almighty Allah and to have a healthy society in general, may be found through following three important steps as follows:

  1. To worship the Creator, the Almighty Allah alone, without associating with Him
  2. To establish perfect system of living for every person and the whole community.
  3. To obey and follow the command of the Creator in daily life, as per human ability, and create a perfect state.

Based on those important aspects we believe that all youth and the younger generation have the potential to gain the knowledge to build a happier and purposeful future. Therefore it is our vision, as a community, to inspire them for learning and as a result we would like to see our youth become responsible and productive citizens. Through involvement in knowledge we believe that our youth will become responsible citizens, lifelong learners, and will be prepared for a number of them to become leaders in their own community.

Our Mission

It is the aims of International Knowledge Foundation to provide opportunity, in any way possible, to the youth and the younger generation in order for them to be involved in education and develop their moral, spiritual, intellectual and physical character so that they may have a consciousness of their Creator and build their relationship with Him in the light of the knowledge and become the leader of their own community towards the success and peace.

In general our foundational mission points are as follows:

  1. Imparting knowledge that will enable pupils to differentiate truth from falsehood
  2. Promoting and preserving true knowledge among youth which gives them identity and value with pride and dignity
  3. Developing in the child confidence, responsibility and leadership qualities based on compassion, humility and righteousness.
  4. Developing a culture of tolerance and respect towards all human beings.
  5. Encouraging freedom of thought and expression within the bounds of respecting other peoples culture and religion.
  6. Providing knowledge, skills and attitudes that will exemplify dedication and excellence.
  7. Assist the youth and educate them so that they become a person in the way that when they leave this world, their good deeds still continue by continuing charity, receiving the reward of knowledge that others benefited from and by having a righteous child who supplicates for him.
