Salaam,

This past Sunday we continued with Chapter 2 of our book and had a good discussion on the early years of Prophet Muhammad (S). In the second period, Imam Khaled gave a tafsir lesson.

I sent an email to group with next Chapter worksheet which is also available in the class Google Drive but not sure everyone is checking that so sending a copy in email and attached to this update as well. 

Upcoming dates:

- next service project - MAP Adopt a Highway project on Sat, 10/26 - please reserve date and will send more details 

 

Thanks,

Jr. Youth Group weekly update - 9/29/19

from:Dheen, Hafeez

to:Youth Group

Salaam Parents,

This past Sunday, Sr. Tabassum covered the first hour of class and continued her tafsir lesson on Surah Kauf. 

I want to apologize as there was a miscommunication on my part and I just learned tonight that the students were without a teacher for most of second period. I had planned to have coverage but I believe the email I sent on the 25th did not reach the person I asked and spoke to prior about the covering. I should have confirmed. I will make sure does not happen again. 

Insha'Allah we will cover Chapter 2 in our book this coming week and I have already sent the worksheet last week to complete for class so please remind students that they can find it in their Google folder. If any trouble getting it, please reach out to me. 

 

Jazak Allah Khairun,

Hafeez

As-Salaamu Alaikum,

 

Thank you everyone for bringing the students out for our first Fun Day this past weekend. Everyone had a great time kayaking and had a nice discussion afterwards. 

We will continue regular class this upcoming weekend, 9/29. I will be out of town this weekend but have coverage for both hours. There is no homework this week but I have assigned Chapter 2 from our book and attached the worksheet, due following week, to our Google Drive folder created for our class. If students have trouble accessing the Google Drive, please let me know. 

Please mark your calendars as we have a tentative service project coming up on Sat, Oct 26th. MAP Outreach is organizing an Adopt a Highway project and would be great to have the youth involved. Will share more information as I receive it. 

JAK,
