The Rights of a Muslim upon Another Muslim…

We were missing one of the original captains in fifth grade class for some time. Some classes will write cards, send balloons, Skype ‘im, but nooo not Rasheed Academy’s fifth graders. We went old fashioned, retro, old school…we decided to physically visit our captain, friend and brother in Islam. We actually accomplished a number of things with this visit:
* Visit our sick classmate
* Took the first mini-field trip of the third quarter for any class in the boys’ school
* Got out of the classroom
* Fulfilled the rights of a Muslim upon us
* And earned a lot of hasanaat (good deeds)…

Yes, alhamdulillah.

So we weren’t sure how we would find him. I kind of prepared us for the worst I guess with this awful drawing:

Alhamdulillah. There were no sponge blankets or pajamas, just our brother and classmate happy to see us….

well whichever, it was good to see our friend. May Allah grant you a full recovery Ibrahim – Aameen

Warriors You Are

So things got tough for us yesterday for practice. For starters, we weren’t able to practice at our normal site. But no one pouted, we made shura baynana, and decided to head to our summer mini-camp workout location.

But the ground wasn’t green and lush, it was snowy on parts and soggy. Alhamdulillah for having great assistant coaches. They helped cleared the ground of anything in our way…and our warriors did the rest.

Maashaa Allah 3alaykum jamee3an. You guys did it all, not because you get paid to go hard like a soldier or a player gets paid…but it’s in you. You guys have entered the arena of warriors. Warriors are bred, soldiers are paid. There is your edge young men.
