Presently, due to the 21 day lockdown in South Africa, all schools and maktabs are closed. Children are not allowed to leave their homes to attend Madrasah. As a result of this no formal ta’leem is taking place in the maktabs.
Due to such circumstances, many maktabs, by the grace of Allah Ta’ala, are continuing with the daily maktab ta’leem with the usage of the mobile phone.
Daily sabak is prepared by the Ustaaz / Apa and sent out to the parents of the children. e.g.
Qur-aan Sabak – Page 8 – Aayat 5-7
Surahs – Surah Kaafiroon and revision of Surah Naas
Duas – Durood Ebrahim and revision of Kalimah Tayyibah, Shahaadah and Tamjeed
Fiqh – 4 Faraaidh of wudhu
In this way daily sabak is sent out by the Ustaaz / Apa and the parents sit with the children and revise or teach them what is necessary. Once the child learns the sabak for the day, the parent then sends a message to the Ustaaz / Apa saying that the sabak is completed.
In this way, alhamdulillah despite the lockdown, Madrasah work is still continuing.
May Allah Ta’ala accept the dedicated efforts of all teachers and crown it with acceptance. Aameen.
