We started talking about Miraj this week, and it is so exciting! We talked about “buraq” what prophets, Muhammad s.a.w met at each heaven and what angel jibril told the prophet each step of the way. Also talked about Salah/prayer, how it went from 50 to 5, and what the names of the prayers are. I think this topic brings on great conversation, we will go more into detail in two weeks.I will not be here on Sunday so Eman the T.A will be subbing for me, I will have worksheet emailed to her to give to the class to fill out which they should be able to do with their notes

This week we finished talking about Malcolm X and his effect on both the African American community and the still young muslim American community. We concluded that he was both a man of sincerity in his faith and a dedicated servant to his people. We then read the prophets sas last sermon and compared what he sas was saying 1400 years ago compared the challenges we face on our time and in the past century, including civil rights and equality, womens’ rights and suffrage, and a code of conduct for all of humanity. We then discussed the concepts of democracy and Shura.
This week in class the students learned the feminine form and masculine form of the colors. Then the students went outside for them to make observations and create sentences. They handed the sentences in for their class work grade. There is no worksheet for homework which should give them plenty of time to review and memorize the ayahs we have covered thus far. We have covered ayahs 1-69 in Surah Al-Rahman.
This week we introduced the children to the letter Lam. The sound of Lam is just like the letter “L.” The word of the day was Laymoon which means lemon. We passed Laymoon around in the class. We also have many students with the letter Lam in their name and used them as examples by writing their names in Arabic on the board. As always we reviewed the letter with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels).
We have now started Surat Al-Nas. Please memorize the first 2 ayahs with your child.
As always, please continue to practice and review previous letters with your child. One hour a week every Sunday is not enough time for any child to master the Arabic alphabet. The homework sent home is designed for our students to work on it every day for a little bit. Repetition is key when learning to recognize letters.
This week in class students learned about the singular attached pronoun and how to use it correctly in a sentence. They also learned new vocabulary under the category of family. This will allow them to expand their sentences greatly. In Qur’an they learned ayahs 64-69 in surah Al-Rahman. Their homework is to memorize these ayahs and complete the worksheet handed out to them in class.

This week we continued our discussion of our roles as muslims living in the US. We also talked about various relationships we have and how we must give them their due rights. We talked about our relationships with other people, animals, and the environment as it is our duty as muslims to uphold our responsibilities to each. We then talked about the civil rights movement and its origins. We then talked about Malcolm X and a brief overview of his life and his mission. We finished class reading the letter he sent to his wife Betty from Hajj detailing his transformation.
