This organisation began in a simple form of study circles, focusing to improve Al Quran reading skill for its members. As the time goes by, there is a growing demand for a media to refresh our souls. This simple forum then further combined with contemporary Islamic lectures to further strengthen its members' beliefs about the truth of Islam. Islam is truly a peaceful, compassionate and humane religion
With this belief members are further encouraged to offer contribution to the society by sharing the noble values taught in Islam. This idea takes form in Al Quran reading courses, and Islamic teaching classes for children. To establish its existence in view to sustain the services offered to the society, members are agreed to formalise this organisation further. Under the name of IQRO Foundation, this organisation formally listed in Australia in 2000 as a non profit community organisation, with members primarily came from Indonesian Muslim background.
Since then, IQRO Foundation has been managing various events for Muslim communities, including its focal group of Indonesian Muslims. These wide ranges of events include Seminars and Public Dialogues, Training and Workshops, Recreation, Family Lectures, and Cultural Exhibition.
Based on the noble Islamic values, IQRO embraces dynamism, harmony and tolerance among individuals.
