Dear parents,

Assalamo alikom wa rahmato Allah wa barahatoh,

Alhamdulellah since the second term started, we finished the following suras in Quraan class : (AL-Masad, AL-Nasr ).

Now, we are working on surat AL-Kawthar. Ask your child: 
   1- What does AL-Kawthar mean?
   2- Where is nahr AL-Kawthar?
   3- Who is going to give us water from his cupped hands? 
   4- Who can drink from that river?

Please, always keep reciting the suras that we finished ( at home, in the car, and at bedtime).

  Today, your child will bring home a registration form for the Abraar 7th Annual Quraan competition. Please if you are interested to let your child participate in the competition, fill the form and return it back. The first round will be held starting from mid February ( by the teacher in the class). While in the final round, the parents can join their children in the competition.

Jazakom Allah Khairan
