Respected Asaatizah / Mu’allimaat

Assalaamu alaykum warhmatullahi wabrakaatuhu

Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah Ta’ala today is our first day of maktab after a long Eidul Adha holiday.

May Allah Ta’ala accept our Qurbaani and bless us all with His Radhaa (pleasure).

Indeed, to teach the Qur-aan Shareef to little children is a very great boon and favour of Allah Ta’ala upon us. May Allah Ta’ala keep us always in the khidmat and service of His Deen till our final moments.

Teachers are humbly requested to take note of the following guidelines before we start our new term;

  1. Niyyat: Check our Niyyat (intention) before commencing. Our intention for teaching must be only for the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala, to attain sawaab and rewards from Allah Ta’ala and to pass on the teachings of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to the Ummah. Let us perform two rakaats of Salaah before going into our classrooms and ask Allah Ta’ala to help and guide us along this journey.
  2. Greet the children warmly with salaam and welcome them back to the Madrasah. Ask them how their holidays were and how they spent their time. Advise them gently where necessary.
  3. Workshop: On Saturday (13 July) will be our Maktab teachers Muzakaarah (workshop) in Westville. Please attend and pass the message on to the other teachers at the maktab as well. (poster is attached). It is very important for us as teachers to attend these programs and benefit from the different speakers.
  4. Look at the half yearly marksheets and see our weak areas. Plan out how we can improve on these weak areas. Discuss with our principals and supervisors on how we can improve the levels of our education in our classes.
  5. Practicals and Sunnat Exams: This term will be our practicals and Sunnats examinations. Let us begin our preparations for these exams. Practical wudhu and Salaah is very important for every maktab child and is amongst the objectives of the maktab. Let us ensure that every child knows how to make wudhu and perform Salaah correctly. [Marksheets are attached]
  6. Salaah: Ensure that children perform the Zuhr and Asar Salaah daily in the Madrasah.
  7. Ta’leem and Zikr: Prepare the last few minutes of each day for Ta’leem, Zikr and the Daily Reminder.
  8. Al-Maktab Newsletter: The Al-Maktab newsletter discusses the virtues of Muharram and Aashoora. Please take out some time and discuss this newsletter with the children. [Newsletter attached]
  9. Tuhfatul Banaat / Shabaab: Grade 6 and 7 teachers should try and round up the syllabus for Tuhfatul Banaat / Shabaab for this term.
  10. Dua: Finally make special dua to Allah Ta’ala for His help, guidance and acceptance. Also remember to make dua for the entire Ummah that Allah Ta’ala brings about favourable conditions on the Ummah.

May Allah Ta’ala forgive us all and accept us for the khidmat of His Deen. Aameen.

Was Salaam

Imaani Muzaakarah

In this Imaani Muzaakarah, the need is to keep on repeating. Repetition will Insha-Allah bring conviction.

Line 1: The first line is, “I will look after Allah’s commands and Allah will look after me and be with me.”

The child has to be convinced that protection lies in Allah’s commands. In Allah’s commands I will find Allah. I cannot afford to move away from Salaah, the Masjid, the Qur’aan and the Maktab in times of difficulty.

Line 2: The second line is, “If I need anything, I will ask Allah Alone, and turn to Allah Alone for help.”

At the time of need and help, I should be turning to and asking Allah. Today we are only turning to the means and asking the creation; completely forgetting our creator, Allah.

Line 3: The third line is, “The whole world cannot help me or hurt me, without the permission of Allah.”

This conviction has to settle deep in the heart, that every condition of benefit or harm, is only with Allah’s permission. Illness does not decide on its own who to go to and how to go. Allah is controlling and deciding.

Line 4: The fourth line is, “What’s not written for me, will never come to me. And what came to me, could never miss me.”

We believe in Taqdeer, Allah’s divine decision, perfect planning, having complete knowledge of everything. When we forget this, we end up questioning and blaming others. A man after adopting all the means, still falls sick, so he asks, “How come I fell sick?” In reality he completely forgot Allah. His question ought to have been, “How come I forgot Allah?”

What is desired from this Imaani Muzaakarah is that when anything happens, our minds and hearts should immediately turn to Allah.
