About the Trust

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

May the Peace and Mercy and Blessings of ALLAH be upon you.

The first revealed words of the Glorious QURAN read:

اقرأ وربك الأكرم • الذي علم بالقلم • علم الانسان ما لم يعلم •

Read! and your LORD is The Most Generous The ONE Who Taught by the Pen Who Taught man what man did not know (Sura 96 Aaya 3-5)

The Greatest favour of ALLAH on the human being is that HE taught him knowledge. For that reason HE is called AL-AKRAM.

Al-Akram Trust is a registered educational charity based in Derby. Its aims are:

  • Advancement of education
  • Promotion of Islamic education in particular
  • Promotion of the Islamic faith
  • Benefit the community

We do this through various activities including setting up educational centres, organising community events, running Islamic courses and seminars engaging the community and working with other organisations to this effect.


"Enjoining, all that is good is Sadaqa" (Al Bukhari)

"The believer's shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity." - Al-Tirmidhi

"Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity." - Al-Tirmidhi

With all gratitude and praise to ALLAH First and Foremost and then with gratitude to all (volunteer helpers, parents of pupils, pupils, teachers, supervisors, administration staff, trustees and public) the Normanton House (Islamic) School of the Al-Akram Trust (registered charity number 1077822) has in its Ramadhan Appeal of 1436H raised on initial accounting just over £40,000.

May ALLAH, The Exalted, Reward you all in return for your invaluable help a place in HIS Janna that covers this universe.

In addition to this we would like to announce that the pupils of the Normanton House (Islamic Girls Secondary) School who sat their GCSE exams 2 years earlier than the national norm all (100%) acheived the highest grade.

This is due to their very hard effort and the very hard effort of their teachers. We are grateful to all (helpers, parents, pupils, teachers, admin staff, organisers) who have had involvement of any in this effort.

We again are deeply grateful to you all out there for your continued support to us here at the Al-Akram Trust.

May ALLAH Grant you all the highest of Rewards in return.

Again and ultimately all praise and gratitude goes to our Most Gracious LORD ALLAH WHO Has Made all this be.

May the Peace and Mercy and Blessings of ALLAH Be upon you
