2.     What does Quran say about respect, especially to parents?  In this day and age, respect has taken a back seat and sarcastic speech is the norm.  We take this topic head-on and offer Quranic remedy to this social atrocity

3.     Prayer beyond movements – in this class, we diagnose prayer step by step and give meaning to each step.  It has been proven those who go through this class, to fall in love with prayer and not to take it for granted.

Year 3:

We study Seerah and the honor of the prophet (S).  At the end of this year, the students will have a solid understanding of why we study the Seerah, the manner by which the Prophet (S) has been honored by Allah in Quran.

Please send with your child every week:

- both books

- 2 sharpened pencils

2. Connect letters to form words to start reading.

3. Know the general meaning of the assigned   short Surahs and learn some lessons from the same Surahs.

         I believe parents have an important role to play in their children's education and can enhance their children's learning experience by encouraging them to learn their religion and respect the Sunday School by following the school and class rules.

My class rules are:

1. Respect the teacher and  classmates. I ask my students to kindly keep their hands and feet to themselves and use appropriate language.

2. Follow directions.

As about 3 million muslims around the world converged on the city of Mecca to complete their spiritual journey of hajj, the fifth pillar of islam, students at our Sunday school gathered at MCC to experience our annual Hajj simulation event on Sunday September 20, 2015.  The spirit of Hajj flowed through the hall as children ranging from Pre K to high school walked in to experience the spiritual journey. 

Each class experienced all the rituals of Hajj while visiting stations decorated by the parents volunteer. Nimra, a student at MCC, shared the significance of Hajj highlighting how Hajj dates back to Prophet Ibrahim and shows the bond of sisterhood and brotherhood. Hajj brings muslims of every ethnic group, color, race and gender together at Khana Kaaba, to praise Allah in one voice. 

Anisa and Sana introduced the concept of Miqat and showed their fellow students how to wear an Ihram. It was a beautiful sight to see young children try on Ihram and read aloud the niyah for Hajj. 

Students were taken to the tent which represented the city of Mina, also referred to as the city of tents. Children visually experienced how all muslims live in very basic conditions and practice patience and kindness with each other. 

The next step was to take the children to make belief rocky desert hill of Mount Arafat. Jannat explained how the muslims seek pardon, reclaim their faith, and recollect their spirits. Children paused to make a dua for themselves and their families to mark the start of hajj. 

Students collected make belief pebbles at station Muzdalifa, and stoned the devil at Jamarat in Mina. Shaik Hatim explained the significance of sacrifice and shaving to his fellow students. 

A makeshift Kaaba constructed using black velvet cloth was the central point for Hajj simulation. It was an incredible experience for all students to circle around makeshift Kaaba while saying “Labaik Allah Huma Labaik”. Most of them were excited to learn the reward for Hajj is forgiveness for all of one’s sins. 

We are extremely blessed that our wonderful parent community came forward to help set up and conduct Hajj simulation event. As the muslim world celebrates Eid ul Adha we pray that may Allah protect all our children and our families. May Allah accept the Hajj of those who have performed it and give all Muslims the opportunity to perform Hajj. May Allah accept all our duas and grant us the barakas of this most blessed day. Ameen. ̹ 
Hajj & Eid Mubarak to you all!
