Tuesday, 5th September 2023:
The importance of teachers can be understood by the quote of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) wherein he said that "I have been sent only as a teacher to you". The Prophet (PBUH) impacted the hearts and minds of people through various educational activities.
The role of a teacher/ educator in society is both significant and valuable. Thus, since 2017 AMP has honoured and appreciated the role of Teachers & Educators from across India for their outstanding services and invaluable contribution to Students’ lives and the Society at large.
The felicitation programme of 7th AMP National Awards for Excellence in Education 2023, was held on Teachers’ Day at an impressive function in Al - Ameen Towers, No 69, Hosur Main Road, Lal Bagh Main Rd, Behind, Sudhama Nagar, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560027.

He greeted all teachers on the occasion and appreciated immensely AMP’s initiative of bringing together Muslim Professionals for contributing back to the Society. He mentioned that we should not be overly dependent on the Government as its only a facilitator and not provider. He also added that we need to create more infrastructure if we need to progress.
Janab Aamir Edresy Sahab, President of AMP, in his keynote address, said “We use to always hear that Muslims were behind scheduled castes in Education, hence when we formed AMP, we decided to focus on education.
