MashAllah we had some amazing submissions for our first Arabic Studies Ramadan competition this year! Submissions for the Qur’an reading and reciting can be found <here> and you can see our impressive art & calligraphy entries below! Well done to all of you mash Allah 🙂
All art winners were awarded colour pens and canvas pads to use to help them learn and memorise Quran through the art of calligraphy.
We are thrilled to share with you our recent activity in AS2A, where our students have learned how to make their own “mesbaha” using their favorite colors of beads. This hands-on activity allowed our students to not only express their creativity, but also to remember Allah (swt) by saying tasbeeh phrases such as alhamdulillah, subhan Allah, and allahu Akbar on each bead. This activity not only links with our syllabus, but also helps our students to practice their numeracy skills in Arabic. We are proud of our students’ enthusiasm in making their mesbaha. – Sr Nermin
Subhan Allah! An activity filled lesson was had by the Arabic & Quranic Studies Level 1 students in February. Class learning began with Surah An-Naas and learning about Allah and his attributes الرَب & الْمَلِكُ focusing on how such a short word has vast meanings: creator, provider, nurturer, nourisher and sustainer, provider, lord and master. Our starting point was of a seed, and how by the will of Allah, it develops and progresses. Alhumdu lillah!
We connected this learning to the upcoming anniversary of Al-‘Isrā’ wal-Miʿrāj— from the Seerah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ when he met with Prophet Ibraheem ﷺ and after giving us salaam, the message he sent to the Ummah of Rasool ﷺ about the condition of Jannah; it’s soil and it’s water and what are the seeds of its vegetations.
AS1 students chose which seeds to sow in their plant pots, and covered them with soil before watering them. They took them home to look after, as the Murabbi of their plants, will help them grow and, Inn sha Allah, eat from what they produce!
Students also learned to recognise the formation of Arabic numbers through physical movements and postures as well as putting their colouring skill and penmanship in to practice. Maa sha Allah! Well done, super learners!
Alhamdulillah 💛 at MKIS we truly believe in working to build our students’ love for Allah SWT and understanding of our beautiful deen. During this week’s IS1 lesson, the class were introduced to the names and meanings of the 5 pillars of Islam. We discussed each pillar as an important act of worship and vital in keeping our iman strong. To help visualise the importance of each pillar, we created a house, with each pillar of Islam being key in keeping our homes upright, stable, and strong – alhamdulillah! 💛 Such wonderful conversations with our first years – keep up the amazing work IS1! Mashallah! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
