The article analyzes the famous Tatar scholar, teacher, enlightener, and public figure Riza Fakhreddin’s opinion on Muslim national and religious schools. Fakh-reddin’s publications published in the Tatar periodical in 1913–1914 served as a source for writing the work. In 1913, Mufti M.Sultanov received an official letter from the Department for Foreign Confessions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. The letter requested Muslims’ opinions about the situation of religious schools from the Islamic perspective. In his works, Fakhreddin gives the questionnaire answers and covers the Muslim community's opinion about this document.
