As salaamu ‘alaikum ICN Noor Academy Families
We’ve all heard about the importance of starting your day off right. A morning routine is something that brings focus, reduces stress, and sets the tone for the rest of the day. As muslims we have the advantage of knowing that starting the day by remembering our relationship with Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’aala is something that will bring that focus and peace and barakah to the day.
At school we start the day with morning assembly. We recite Surah al Fatihah and then recite the meaning in English so that we may be intentional about this beautiful affirmation, and know that Allah is there to guide and help us through our day.
Please make sure your child arrives at school on time so that he or she does not miss the assembly, and can start the day focussed and content. This small thing makes a big impact.
Next week is fire safety week! We will be talking about and practicing ways to be safe in case of fire, wherever you are. We will also practice the safest way to get out of the school building in case there is a fire, Allah forbid. InshaAllah the following week we will have our first fire drill of the school year.
It has been our school tradition to bring sadaqah on Fridays. InshaAllah this year we intend for our sadaqah to go to Lifeusa for their water projects, to provide communities all over the world with clean drinking water. If we collect $3000 this year, it would be enough for a simple hand dug well. $8000 is enough for a deep artesian well. So, don’t miss this chance to earn sadaqah jariyah!
Thank you, salaam, and have a wonderful weekend.
