“‘Iqra!’ or ‘Read!’ is the first command from God to the prophet, Muhammad. Reading and learning have become some of the most important values Muslims hold. It is God’s first command that has brought Muslim students to Montclair State University to honor the high value they place upon learning and education. By bringing their religious values into their daily lives, Muslim students continue to influence and be influenced by others during their time at Montclair State.”
