They discovered the power of prayer and the transformative impact of kindness, igniting a spark of curiosity and devotion within each young heart.

As they ventured into Term 2, the excitement only grew as they delved deeper into the rich history and timeless wisdom of their faith. With eager minds, they uncovered the stories of the Prophets, including Prophet Muhammad, and marveled at the unity of the global Muslim community, the Ummah.

The remarkable progress made by these young learners in understanding and embodying their faith is nothing short of inspiring. With anticipation buzzing in the air, there’s a sense of eager anticipation for the adventures that await in the upcoming terms, where their journey of discovery and growth will undoubtedly continue to flourish.

Grade 2: Our young learners embarked on an exciting journey exploring the realm of good deeds. Each student had their own captivating story to share about their experiences with acts of kindness. They even crafted a weekly calendar to keep track of their heartwarming deeds, turning learning into a delightful adventure.

As they transitioned to Book 3, a new chapter unfolded, centered around the joyous celebration of Salgirah Mubarak. Drawing parallels between their birthdays and this special occasion, the students enthusiastically reflected on the gifts they receive and the gifts they could offer to Mawla Bapa. From the heartfelt gift of attending Jamatkhana to the cherished treasures of respecting their parents and teachers, they explored the true essence of giving with boundless enthusiasm and curiosity.

Grade 4: In Grade 4 students explore the narrative of “The Debate between the Animals and the Humans” found in Book 2. This tale delves into the intricate dynamics between humans and animals within God’s creation. Set on an island where animals are unjustly treated as servants, the story unfolds with the animals appealing to the king of the jinn for fairness. Throughout a four-day debate, both sides present their arguments, with humans drawing upon Quranic verses to assert their dominance. However, the jinn ultimately stresses that while humans may hold a higher status, they must treat animals with kindness and will be answerable to God for their conduct. This narrative underscores the significance of nurturing and respecting all aspects of Allah’s creation and recognizing our role as caretakers of the Earth. Through this tale, we glean essential lessons about empathy, accountability, and our spiritual connection with the divine.

Grade 5: In the classroom, students have been diving deep into the theme of sewa, inspired by the book “People Helping People.” We’ve explored Mowlana Hazar Imam’s Hierarchy, delving into the levels of service within our community. Through discussions and activities, students gained insight into sewa’s dimensions and its role in societal betterment. We’ve also pondered Quality of Life, considering how our actions can improve others’ well-being. Volunteerism was a big focus, with hands-on projects and guest speakers highlighting the importance of giving back. A visit from paramedics taught life-saving skills, and we emphasized learning from peers and family. As we reflect on our journey, we’re reminded of sewa’s profound impact and aim to inspire positive change in our society.

Grade 6: In this term, students delve deeper into Muslim history, particularly focusing on three significant dynasties: the Ottomans, Safavids, and Mughals.
