Dear Quran 5 Parents,

Assalamu Alaikum: Today, on the first day of Spring semester, I introduced verse 284 of Surah Al-Baqarah and handed out HW #9 (see attached). This HW is due next week (Jan 20), so please help your children memorize this verse.

There was a commment made in MAP Winter Fundraising Dinner by one of the youth that her little brother "got more HW in Sunday School than in regular school". Some youth also expressed that Sunday school expected children to memorize long surahs. I would like to hear your thoughts (as parents) on the amount of HW your children are assigned in Quran 5 and if you are concerned about the work load. You can see me on any Sunday after the class period ends at 12pm, or at other times by appointment.

Children should have received their Fall report cards today. Let me know if there are any questions are concerns.

Beautiful names of Allah's (SWT) Project:  Some children brought posters for their assigned names. I will collect it from them next week and find a way to dispaly them in class. Other children have decided to come up with a slide show and I have asked them to send me their slides by next Sunday so I can put all slides in one slide-show. I will let you know of a date in a 2-3 weeks when you can listen to your children talk about their slides during the class period; I hope you will make time to listen to your children's presentation (inshallah).

1. Al-Malik - Alina
2. As-Salaam - Faatima Tirmizi
3. Al-Muhaymin - Heba
4. Al-Aziz - Sarah
5. Al-Muttakabbir - Fatima Bokhari
6. Al-Khaliq - Faaris
7. Al-Baari - Zaid
8. Al-Jabbar - Maryam
9. Al-Mussawar - Naeema

Storytime by Some of Quran 5 Students: Following children will be working on a story for younger children (date to be decided) on the great event of first revelation in Cave Hira:

  • Naeema (Muhammad (S) Before Becoming a Prophet)
  • Faaris (Visit of Anegl Jibrael in Cave Hira)
  • Alina (Muhammad (S) Returns from Cave Hira to Khadija)
  • Hebah (Khadijah takes Muhammad (S) to her cousin Warqa)

Please work with your children on developing their part of the story.

Best Regards,

Ishfaq
