Alhamdolilah! Allah has truly blessed us and shown His favor upon us by making us Muslims. May He increase us in knowledge and in Emaan so that we may work towards having the conduct and character of our pious predecessors, who embraced Islam in its totality. Ameen.
As we all know, educating our youth is serious business and it is extremely difficult. The problems are compounded when we do not support one another. What we need is for parents, teachers, administrators and the entire faculty to work together as a team. We all have to understand that as the children of Adam, we are going to make mistakes– administrators, teachers, aides, and parents alike. We all have shortcomings, but let us not lose focus of our goal. We are trying to help prepare young Muslim children to be good Muslim adults.
As we come closer to realizing our Mission, we want parents to make a special effort to impart to their children the importance of respecting their teachers and those in authority amongst them. We want to focus on the etiquette of learning which, as emphasized in the book Guidelines for Raising Children, “…requires fostering the love of learning in children, and teaching them to respect the people of knowledge so that they show respect to their teachers.”
We are going to try our best to give your child(ren) a quality education in an Islamic environment, insha’Allah. We need your help in ensuring that they come to school ready to learn, and to cooperate with the adults in authority.
May Allah bless us to have a successful upcoming school year and enable us to work together towards birr and taqwaa (all good actions and obedience), and May Allah help us to provide our children with a quality education that will make them successful in this life and in the next. Ameen
