This is a friendly reminder about our current Food Drive for the Sadaqa Food Bank. We have set up collection bins by our school gym but we haven't received enough items until now. We encourage you to participate in this great cause for the the following reasons:
1) Removing grief and hardship of some families who are in dire need to feed their children. It is narrated that Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, said: Whoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the griefs of the Day of Resurrection.
2) It is a great way to help our students practice kindness, the character of this month!
3) It is also a great way to help students put their du'aa of the month into practice. Our monthly du'aa is:
اللَّهم إني أسألك فعل الخيرات، وَتَرْكَ الْمُنْكَرَاتِ، وَحُبَّ الْمَسَاكِينِ“O Allah, I ask You to help me do good deeds, abandon bad deeds, and love the weak and the poor"
Jazakum Allah khair for your continuous support, cooperation, and kindness!
