Salaam,
The Teens will be going to Finley Rd for their Adopt-a-Highway clean-up this Sunday, Nov 20th. Br. Ed and I will chaperone. Parents, please sign the waivers that were handed out to your children last Sunday!
Thanks,
Ms. Mona
Salam Parents,
In last few weeks, we have studied the careful process of recording the Quran into written form. And the process to ensure its uniformity and precise accuracy in recitation.
We have also studied the themes of revelation in the first three years since the first revelation was made.
We have had some class activities to focus on those themes as well.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We plan to take part in the street cleaning project on Finley Rd that Mohammed Webb adopted on November 20. We should have enough drivers to take the kids with Br Edmund and myself. We will have waiver forms next week for parents to sign, iA.
I am also encouraging our teens to volunteer to help distribute turkeys on Tuesday, Nov 22nd for the Chicago Annual Turkey Drive, more details to come, iA.
Salam Teen Parents,
We have been learning the meaning of Surat al-Fatiha and how it is the lens that we use to understand the rest of the Quran.
We also discussed how it’s a prayer for Guidance and a summary of what our Faith is about.
We then did some activities to understand how we can be those on the Straight Path and those without anger for anger can reflect ingratitude. We will continue this lesson next week as well, iA.

Salam Parents,

I’m so excited to start this year with you all. I will be teaching the teens in the Islamic Studies class. Our topic this year is “Understanding the Quran: Faith into Action” and I will be using the book: Revelation by Meraj Mohiuddin as my main resource.
We have had 2 great classes so far. Our first class was introducing the class and students to each other.
The second class we covered the circumstances in the prophets life that led him to the cave in Hira and the details of the very first revelation (96:1-5). We also discussed subsequent verses that followed from Surah 68: 1-6 and 93 and how we can reflect on those verses with our own struggles in these tough times now.
I am including my introductory letter with this message. The only correction from the letter is that I won’t have a TA this year.  I look forward to a great year with these students. They are amazing kids, mA!
