Annual Presentation - Seeking the Divine Love of Allah SWT

The presentation this year took place in the hall on the top floor at Dawson House and was based around the theme of 'Seeking the Divine Love of Allah (SWT)’. The presentation began with yellow class reminding us that Allah is Our Creator, our Al Khaliq. It was followed by year 1 who shared their understanding of Allah (SWT), as Al Wudood, the One who is full of loving kindness, the most loving. Red class then sang a nasheed about the 5 pillars of Islam reminding us of Deen-ul-Islam. Next year 2, encouraged us to reflect upon Allah’s (SWT) words in the Quran,  a recitation of amazing lessons and deep meaning allowing us to reflect upon its verses and bring that understanding into our daily lives. Year 3 visually showed us the unified message that all the prophets including prophet Muhammad (saw) gave us to keep to seek the Divine Love of Allah through the unity of the ummah and by keeping good company. Year 4 explained to us who the people are that Allah loves and year 5 showed us that to love Allah (SWT) and attain ihsaan, we must turn to Him in worship and ask Him to guide us in dua. Through year 6, we learnt about the spiritual and physical function of our heart, our qalb. When we just take a few steps toward Allah, we find that He comes to us by a greater distance. It is only through the worship of Allah (SWT) do we find a purpose for our life, after all we are all born to worship Him alone.

We would like to say a big JazakAllah khairun to all parents who volunteered in preparing the backdrop, stage props, food and setup/cleanup, photography on the day, as well as the staff and children who all worked so hard to put together this wonderful event. MashAllah we had such a positive feedback. A lot of parents mentioned it was one of the best they had seen in many years at ISF. We raised a total of £1,438 for the school’s fundraising efforts. May Allah reward you for your support.

‘Asma ul Husna’ Sponsorship Competition

The children were given a challenge to learn as many Asma ul Husna as they could and collect sponsorship money to raise much needed funds for the Slough school. They were tested over a week of how many names of the beautiful names of Allah ta’ala they had memorised, and were able to raise about £1000 of much needed funds for the school. May this plant a seed in the children’s hearts to gain a closeness to Allah ta’ala through learning His Beautiful Names.

‘Bright Smiles, Bright Future’

Colgate initiated a campaign to educate children about good oral health. Children from key stage 1 in our school were given an oral health education kit which contained a toothbrush, toothpaste and information leaflet. Children learnt about about the importance of keeping their teeth healthy by brushing them twice a day and by avoiding eating sugary food.
