We have Changed Khutba Time: It will Start at 1 PM EST/12 PM CST

Assalamu alaikum:

Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, said, "He who does not thank people, does not thank Allah" (Ahmad, Tirmidhi).

As the school year ends, it is crucial to thank our children’s teachers, teacher assistants, and principals for an incredible job done. Many were teaching classes online and in-person; they had to adjust lesson plans, manage classroom behavior in an unprecedented manner, and were stressed and burned out like never before. 

And let’s not forget: many were doing that as they managed their own children, families, and financial and health challenges. Some caught COVID-19 themselves as they struggled to handle the pandemic’s restrictions and challenges. 

Please make sure to write or have your child write at least a thank you note as classrooms close their doors in the coming days. A gift is also appreciated and we have some gift ideas in this regard this week.

While summer is a time for fun, learning, and preparation for the next level of learning, cannot take a backseat. This is why we must make sure to prevent summer learning loss. We offer seven ways to do that in this update, so that you can make sure your child is ready for the coming school year. 

While academics are important, the spiritual aspect of moving to the next level of education or life, from high school to college, or college to graduate school or the working world cannot be minimized. This week, one Muslim father offers a heartfelt letter of advice to Muslim high school graduates. We also have suggestions on what Muslim high school graduates can do this summer to prepare for college spiritually. 

May Allah bless all educators with the rest and rejuvenation they need this summer. May all of our children and graduates get a much-needed break during these next few weeks to not only relax, but to build and enhance what they have learned over the last year. May all of our graduates build their spiritual strength and love for Allah this summer to successfully face the challenges of college and the world, and reap its many benefits.
