A Sample Thank You Letter
to teacher on Religious Accomodation

    Dear Mr. Lucas:

    Thank you for taking the time out to meet with me this week to discuss the issue of religious accommodation in public schools and my daughter Samira's needs in that regard.

    In trying to accommodate Samira's need to take a day off from school for the Muslim holiday of Eid-ul-Fitr, I would like to request a second meeting with Mrs. Joan Green, the school principal, to discuss this matter.

    I would like to share former President Bill Clinton's instructions to schools and teachers about accommodating students' religious needs with Mrs. Green. Your presence at this meeting as Samira's teacher would be a source of strength and support for me, and could contribute positively to the discussion.

    This meeting and the information can, hopefully, clarify the issue for all three of us and serve as a guide to further religious accommodation for all students at Belleview elementary school.

    Please let me know what day and time would be most appropriate for you so that I can set up this meeting. Thank you again for your co-operation. You may call me at (123) 456-7890 in the daytime or (123) 012-3456 in the evenings.

Something to Ask...
My Rubb,
I beg of you good that lies in this night and good that follows it, and I seek refuge in You from the evil that lies in this night and from the evil of that which follows it. My Rubb! I seek refuge in You from lethargy and the misery of old age. O Allah! I seek Your Protection from the torment of Hell-fire and the punishment of the grave.
