Tarbiyat Series_Issue #1

Muhtaram Ulama / Muallimaat

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

May Allah Ta’ala accept our feeble efforts in imparting the knowledge of Deen to the children of the Ummah.

Together with ta’leem it is important for us to also make the tarbiyat of our pupils. Tarbiyat refers to correcting them, guiding them and making their islaah.

In this regard the Ta’limi Board (KZN) has received many requests from teachers to prepare some topics discussing important aspects of tarbiyat.

Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah Ta’ala the first edition has been prepared.

Topic: Speaking the truth and being honest.

It has been noticed that lies has become very common in Muslims. Truthfulness which was the hallmark of a Muslim has become very rare. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was known as As-Saadiq (The Truthful) Al-Ameen (The Honest).

Hence, let us try to the best of our ability to instill truthfulness and honesty in ourselves as well as the children in our classes.

This edition discusses some Ahaadith and important points on honesty which should be discussed with the children in our classes.

Insha Allah we hope in this way to pass on the wonderful teachings of Rasulullah (salallahu alayhi wasallam) to the Ummah and instill truthfulness and honesty in our own lives.

May Allah Ta’ala grant us all the taufeeq

Muhtaram Moulana / Apa

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah Ta’ala, we have entered the final term of our Madrasah year. May Allah Ta’ala accept our broken efforts and crown them with qabuliyat (acceptance).

Before commencing with Madrasah, let us try our best to plan out our work for the term so that we are ready for the final exams and can easily round up our work for the year. In English there is a saying that goes;

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail

Please take note of the following;

1. Tuhfatul Banaat / Tuhfatush Shabaab exams: This exam will take place on the 25 October Insha Allah. Those maktabs that need scripts for the exams should please contact the principal or Supervisor of the Madrasah.

2. Al-Maktab Newsletter: The last edition of the Al-Maktab newsletter was on Sadaqah. Please discuss the newsletter with the pupils and encourage them to give out sadaqah especially now with the Palestinian crisis we should try and give out some sadaqah daily. The newsletter has been attached.

3. Practicals and Sunnats Exams: Al-hamdulillah the practical and sunnats exams were conducted last term. Please check if there were any weaknesses and try to improve on the same especially the wudhu and the salaah of the pupils.

4. Rounding up of the syllabus: Try to round up whatever is left of the syllabus so that revision for the final exams can commence ASAP.

Fiqh: 22 November

Muhtaram Ulama-e-Kiraam / Mu’allimaat

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

Just a small reminder

When preparing the children for the practical exams, please put emphasis on the pupils learning the masnoon duas correctly for wudhu, salaah, eating, drinking, wearing clothes, etc. These duas will also be tested when taking the practical and Sunnats exams.

Also please put emphasis on the children to learn the salaah chart. Children must know the full breakdown of the number of rakaats for each Salaah.

The First Week of Madrasah

Respected Moulana / Apa

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

Al-hamdulillah, today is our first day of Madrasah after the long holidays.

May Allah accept our coming to Madrasah and make it a means of earning His special pleasure. Aameen.

Please take note of the following guidelines;

  1. Give the children a small talk on the virtues of coming to Madrasah daily and how important Madrasah is for them as Muslims.
    Read out to them the guidelines for pupils. [This is found in the pupil’s diary]
  2. Study the half yearly exam marksheet and see if there are any weaknesses and how it can be improved on in this term.
  3. Plan the rest of the year in such a way that all remaining work in all subjects can be completed before the end of the term. Reserve the last term for revision and exams.
  4. Commence with sabak of Qur-aan / Qaidah on the first day of Madrasah.
  5. Do a full revision program of Surahs and Duas for the entire week and then commence with new sabaks.
  6. Commence with revision of Practicals and Sunnats. This term exams will be conducted in these two subjects. [Dates will be given by the Supervisor].

May Allah Ta’ala accept our broken efforts and shower us with His special blessings. Aameen.

Was Salaam

Attendance Mark

Respected Moulana/Apa

Assalaamu alaykum warhmatullahi wabrakaatuhu

This year many maktabs had different holidays in the first term. Hence, each maktab should count the number of Madrasah days for the first two terms and then work out the attendance mark for the reports using the formula below;


Total Number of Madrasah Days from the beginning of the year up to the end of the second term=98

If Zaid stayed absent for 5 days i.e. he was present for 93 days. Divide the number of days he was present by the total number of Madrasah day’s i.e. 93 days divided by 98 days = 0.948 (round up to 0.95). Now divide 95 in half = 47½. This mark (47½) will be added into the report for the pupil’s attendance.
