THE IDEA BEHIND OUR NAME
"Indeed We have given you Al-Kawthar (abundance)."
Holy Quran [108:1]
As to the meaning behind our institution’s name, the Arabic word “kawthar” refers to a heavenly fountain of abundance, light, and knowledge. It is also associated with Lady Fatimah (a), the saintly and sagacious daughter of Prophet Muhammad (s), by whom we are inspired to embark on a journey of learning. The word “circle” is evoked to capture the spirit of collective learning.
