Abdul Saboor Bhatty studied at IOK in his High School years and learned that surrounding himself with good people would make him a better person. He credits IOK for his love of his deen and for helping him become a more practicing Muslim. “IOK did not only teach me how to live as a Muslim but how to live as a Muslim in a diverse culture.” Abdul Saboor’s first trip to Umrah was with his classmates during their Senior trip as 10th graders. He cites that as being one of the most memorable experiences of his life.​
