Ski Trip 2017 Canceled

Important Announcement regarding Ski Trip to Wilmot Mountain on 2/25: Unfortunately, the Ski Trip we have been planning for this weekend has been canceled due to the weather. Please read a note from the Event Chairs below:

Assalamu ‘Alaikum,

We hope everyone is enjoying a taste of the spring weather. The weather is bittersweet, as the extended warmth has impeded our ability to keep our reservation this weekend (February 25, 2017) at Wilmot Mountain for the Annual Ski Trip.

We have made the decision to postpone the outing and may not have the opportunity to reschedule for this winter or early spring. We will keep everyone posted if we find a date and matching weather for a great experience. Otherwise, we will look to reschedule the event for next winter.

If you have already signed-up for this trip, we will coordinate a refund process. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. We look forward to making this event happen and enjoy getting families together for a blast in the snow.

Event Chairs: Azeem Mohamed and Adnan Arain.

There will be no classes for children that day, though your children are welcome to attend with you on the 18th.

During the Teacher Training meeting held on Sunday, September 4th, our Sunday School teachers were introduced to our new Arabic/Qur’an program called Al-Bidaya.

Al-Bidaya means “The Beginning.” This program will teach students how to read to the Qur’an with correct pronunciation. It is designed for all educational levels and age groups. It has been described as easy, fun, and well-paced. Ten Islamic Schools – including Aqsa school – have already incorporated al-Bidaya into their curriculum.

Please watch the following testimonial videos from former students to learn how the Bidaya program helped them.

If you have any questions about our Arabic/Qur’an curriculum, please email Principal Alia Hirzalla at
