IS1: 5 Pillars of Islam

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! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

IS4 Islamic Calendars

Masha’Allah! As we learn the significance of various different Islamic months through the year we asked the students to make an Islamic calendar for homework. We were absolutely blown away with the creativity these little souls put into it. The colourful creations were a delight to see. They were all so proud of their work and so eager to share with us. We are so so proud of our students. Keep up the good work IS4! – Sr. Ramos & Sr. Shazia

IS1 – Hajj Lesson

Alhamdulillah! What a fantastic day with Islamic Studies year 1 (IS1) learning all about Hajj! Using their amazing skills, knowledge, and team work, our class built their own mini models highlighting the key steps of Hajj mashAllah including; the kaaba, mount Safa and Marwa, the tents in Mina, mount Arafah, stones at Muzdalifah, the Jamarat, and a sheep to signify Eid Al-Adha mashAllah! The class discussed each element, and took such care and attention in remembering the importance and blessings of Hajj mashAllah! It was an absolute delight and privilege to see the class come to life in creating these works of art, remembering the stories of prophet Ibrahim AS and increasing our love for Allah SWT alhamdulillah! Go IS1 mashAllah!  👏   💫 – Sr. Samita (IS1 Teacher)

Corona Virus Notice

Assalaamu Alaikum

Dear Parents
No doubt you will be receiving many emails and messages concerning the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak currently.
As you may be aware, at the point of writing this email neither the Government nor local councils have made any announcements regarding total school closures and so for the time being, it is the decision of the SIS Management team for the School of Islamic Studies to remain open for now.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will inform all parents and volunteers should the situation change of course.

What you can do

While it is a deeply concerning time, as Muslims we must remain steadfast in our belief that only Allah (swt) can both bring and take away such hardships and illnesses.  To this end, in addition to praying for the welfare of the entire Muslim Ummah, there are some practical actions we must all take in order to do our best to safeguard ourselves and those around us.

  1. Remain in a state of wudhu: while this is encouraged even under normal circumstances, the importance of cleanliness is even more important in the current climate
  2. Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds each time with soap and water or hand sanitiser, especially when you:
    • Get home or into work/school
    • Blow your nose, sneeze or cough
    • Eat or handle food
  3. Avoid physical contact (shaking hands/hugging) outside of your immediate household

We must also encourage our children to adopt the above actions as they may not be as vulnerable, but they may carry the virus to more vulnerable people around us. 
Lastly, please can we ask for you to follow the standard guidelines provided by your child(ren)’s mainstream schools concerning attendance.  If you or your child(ren) have suffered from fever, repeated dry coughing or breathing difficulties in the past 7 days, we ask that you do not attend the School of Islamic Studies, and instead follow the recommended self isolation procedures published by the the Healthcare authorities or contact NHS Direct on 111 if your symptoms are severe.
We will continue to publish updates regarding our school on our website (sis.mkis.org) as and when they are available so please check back often and subscribe to our Twitter feed (@mkisinfo).
May Allah (swt) guide and protect us during this very difficult time and please remember us all in your duas insha Allah.
Jazakoum’Allah Khayr

Please check back here regularly over the coming days insha Allah.
