By the grace of Allah (SWT), AIS students had a wonderful opportunity to perform in the mega event of Al-Huda International Institute’s Convocation Ceremony on Tuesday, 25th December 2012. Students and teachers performed brilliantly utilizing best of their abilities and skills for the sake of Allah (SWT) and for the propagation of His Deen.
The outline of the AIS stage presentation is:
The AIS program was hosted by Maiza Umer of grade IV-G in Urdu. Although, she prepared just in a day, her performance was commendable Masha’Allah.
Hadith on “Rights of a Muslim on another Muslim” was narrated by Ayman Jawad (1-C) in Arabic and translated by Areej Imran (2-A). It was impressive to see young girls narrating hadeeth so eloquently in front a huge audience.
A very colorful and fabulous performance, with the background sound of an Arabic Nasheed sung by two of our very talented teachers, was done by students of CASA who presented different animals and their habitats.
Every Muslim has a different style for calling to Allah’s Deen. Girls of Grades III & V conveyed the message through an Arabic Nasheed which was sung beautifully.
Satan’s evil desires and a believer’s weapons were uniquely depicted through an engaging role play by students of Grades II-A, II-B and IV. The audience, especially Ustazah Farhat Hashmi, appreciated it a lot.
The Program concluded with the closing remarks of the host.
With Allah’s grace AIS students performed well and the audience thoroughly enjoyed each part of the program masha’Allah. AIS is blessed to have such unique opportunities in which students get chances to perform on stage confidently in front of entirely packed halls. These events help to discover students’ potentials, enhance their skills and boost their confidence. These are practical times for implementing team work. May Allah (SWT) accept all the efforts and the hard work put in by the team and may these children become sadqah-e-jariyah for their parents and all of us. Ameen.
Quran for All; In every hand, In every heart
The mission of AlHuda International School is to integrate academic excellence and Quranic knowledge in the best possible manner in order to raise responsible practicing Muslims. Taking another leap towards achieving its mission, AIS organized annual Qira’at competition on Tuesday, 18th December 2012, in order to enhance the love of Allah (SWT) and Quran in children and to inculcate in them a desire and habit to read Quran in the manner taught by the Prophet (SAW).
Prior to the Grand Finale, different rounds of qira’at competitions were conducted amongst the students of all grades, including both Montessori and Junior sections. Students had been coached by their teachers at school and reinforced by parents at home for improving their Qira’at skills of the selected surahs. Special emphasis is on reciting with the correct makharij, abiding by the rules of tajweed, avoiding mistakes in recitation and reciting with confidence. Click here for important Tajweed Tips.
