KG/1st Grade Update

Asalamualaikum,


This week we introduced the children to the letter Dad. Dad is a hard “D” sound as opposed to the soft “d” sound Dal creates. We reviewed Dad with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels). The word of the day was Dufda’a which means frog. In order to help the students, become acquainted with the new letter, we let students pretend they were frogs and sign along to songs.

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.


Jazakallhu Khayrun,

Islamic Studies 4th and 5th

As salaam alaikum,
We are in the second week of unit 4. The students learned who benefits from a charity. We went over an Ayah in the Quran that mentioned charity. The students learned three new hadiths that relate to charity, and how they interpreted the hadiths.
the Ayah: Indeed, those who recite the Book of Allah and establish prayer and spend [in His cause] out of what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, [can] expect a profit that will never perish (35:29)
‘Hadith the students learned in class:
Narrated ‘Adi bin Hatim heard the Prophet saying:
“Save yourself from Hell-fire even by giving half a date-fruit in charity.”- Sahih al-Bukhari Book 24 Hadith 498
One of the companions of Allah’`s Messenger (peace be upon him) told him that he had heard him say, “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his sadaqah.”- ( Al-Tirmidhi, hadith 604)
Abdullah ibn Harith (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
“I never came across a person who smiled as much as Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Prophet Muhammad regarded smiling to a brother as an act of charity.” (At-Tirmidhi, 3641)

Salam parents,
This week students expanded their knowledge on the five pillars of Islam. After going more in depth on each one the students engaged in a class discussion. Then the class was split in teams and we played a trivia game based off of what they learned up until then. The students enjoyed the game very much and were enthusiastic to participate. Keep up the good work!

KG/1st Arabic Update

Assalamualaikum,

This week we introduced the children to the letter Sad. Unlike Sin, Sad is a very harsh “sss” sound. In order to help with pronunciation please watched some videos in class. The word we taught with Sad was Soora. Soora means picture in Arabic.  

In addition, if your student does not know Al Fatiha and Al Ikhlas please keep practicing them. We have started learning Al Falaq in class.

Inshallah I will see you next Sunday,

Lama Sharaf

Salam Alaikum,
We stared a new unit which is the five pillars of Islam. We talked. about the importance of Sadaqah. We went over a haidith and the students wrote down how they interpreted this hadith: The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Every Muslim has to give in charity.” The people then asked: “(But what) if someone has nothing to give, what should he do?” The Prophet replied: “He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns).” The people further asked: “If he cannot find even that?” He replied: “He should help the needy who appeal for help.” Then the people asked: “If he cannot do (even) that?” The Prophet said finally: “Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds, and that will be regarded as charitable deeds.” – Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 2, Hadith 524
Ms. Eman
Salam,
I’m happy to have the students back in the classroom and excited to learn. This week the students were introduced to the five pillars of Islam and briefly discussed how Muslims connect in their communities. To warmly welcome back the students and give them a further understanding of this we did an activity about communities. Each student drew a puzzle made up of at least six pieces in their journal. On each of these pieces the students wrote one event/quality/etc. through which Muslims connect. They came up with great answers mashallah, some of which include Friday prayer, Ramadan dinners and reading Qur’an. Inshallah everyone enjoys the rest of the week!

KG/1st Arabic Class Update

Asalamualaikum,

This week we introduced the children to the letter Za. We then reviewed Za with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels). We also stressed the fact that Za can only connect from the right side. Three other letters previously learned that also follow this rule are Ra, Dal, and Dhal. The words of the day were Zait (oil) and Zaytoon (olive).

Please continue to practice and review previous letters with your child.  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.
