Forever: The Intersection between Taqwa and Social Media

Today we had the pleasure of having Imam Amir Abdul Malik join us and share his insights on the God consciousness and social media.

The assembly was organized by Br. Sabir Ibrahim, one of the parents at Peace Terrace who wanted to give the students some food for thought before summer vacations.

The Imam talked about the pros and cons of social media and the impact that it has on society and reminded the students that their Taqwa would dictate if some thing was crossing the line.  May Allah bless him for this timely reminder.

The Art Exhibit

Henri Matisse once said. “Creativity takes courage” and he couldn’t have been more right.  An artist puts his/her heart and soul into each piece and there is so much vulnerability in the process of sharing it with others.

Alas, our students are courageous, so we present to you our annual exhibit.

Thank you to all the parents who attended our opening day.  The exhibit will be open until Friday at Noon.  Please feel free to stop by to purchase your child’s art work.

Mother’s Day Celebration

Each year Second Grade teacher Ms. Zenab hosts a very special event, a perfectly elegant Mother’s Day Brunch.  It isn’t a coincidence that Jannah lies under the feet of our mothers.  May Allah bless our mothers!

“A mother’s happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.”

– Honore de Balzac

“Mother’s love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.”

– Erich Fromm

 

“Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face.”

– George Eliot

“We are born of love; Love is our mother.”

– Rumi

“When you look into your mother’s eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth.”

– Mitch Albom

Our teachers are also like our mothers for a little while.  May Allah bless them…may Allah bless Ms. Zenab for all that she does!
