12/07, Game Day ARA Rashideen

This past yawm as sabt (Saturday, 12/07) was definitely game day for ARA’s basketball team. It was a day of development. It started before the students expected as they waited in the cold before the school gym doors were open at 8:40 in the morning. (Sorry guys, I was buying you all breakfast.)

After a two hour meeting and practice our squad loaded up for our first scrimmage of the year! The anticipation was thick as all eyes were on our 20-strong team that entered single file into the Maryvale Robert Brinner gym. After huddling up in the locker room we started our layup lines. The game was a great challenge for our guys even though we fell to the home team.

After that our day wasn’t done. We took a two hour break and then met up once more at the school to head to…

But also our thanks for once the victory was sealed inviting us back into the Bengals’ locker room where we met, chatted and got in for a photo with the players.

The best image of the day though you won’t see but it had to be us closing our eventful day out with praying salatul maghrib as a group at the Buffalo State gym. May Allah accept from us and forgive us for our mistakes. Aameen
