This week we talked about relating everything we covered during the semester, including good character and basic tenets of Islam, into the world we live in today. We talked about being Muslims living in a non-Muslim country and that as Muslims we must abide by the laws of the land we live in so long as it doesn’t conflict with our core principles as Muslims. We gave examples such as following traffic laws and civic laws. We then gave hypothetical examples of situations where laws in place are contrary to our core beliefs and what our response should be as Muslims. We also began talking about our role and responsibility as Muslims and citizens of the world.
Salamulaikum wa rahmatullahi wa baraktu,
Asalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi baraktu,
This past week we discussed dkhikr, or remembrance of Allah sw, and why it is prescribed and why its important. We discussed that it is a sign of gratitude to Allah sw for all that we have. We discussed that there are many forms of dhikr including the many duas we say during the day from when we wake up to before eating and when riding in a car, etc. We then discussed the adhkar after prayer including astaghfurallah, ayat kursi, tasbeeh, tahleel, and tahmeed. We then talked about the daily adhkar than can be done including astaghfurallah 100 times, subhannallah wa bihamdihi subhannallah atheem 100 times, and la illaha illa Allah wahdahu la sharika lahu mulk wa lahu el hamd wa huwa ala kula shay’in qadeer 100 times and the reward for each.
Their homework is:
1) to begin learning at home with parents ayat kursi and the translation of it
2)remember to say the adhkar after prayer
3)try and remember to say each of the daily adhkar at minimum one time a day
Parent-teacher conferences will be held on Sunday, February 26th. Because teachers will be meeting during their non-teaching hours on Sunday, there are limited slots available. Parents are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible. If none of the times available work for you, please email your child’s teachers to set up a phone conference.
