As-salam Alaykum dear kiddos.

Today is October 1, 2019.  It's been exactly one month since the gorgeous summer holidays ended, the beautiful summer over, cool weather rolling and getting cooler by the day.  InshAllah, I hope all of you have settled down into the 'back to school' schedule Smiley

Some reminders would surely help many of our children.

During the long stretch of summer holidays, many of our dear lovely kiddies use the opportunity to learn more of our Deen.  They enroll with Islamic lecture classes, offer nafl fasts now and again, and of course utilize the opportunity to be more regular in the daily five salat with plenty of time with dear parents and siblings.  Alhumdulilah.  At the end of the holidays,  'back to school' shouldn't necessarily disrupt that schedule.  There are 24 hours in a day.  You need to get your 'beauty sleep' for 8 hours.   You are in school for 6 hours.   Yet you are left with 10 solid hours.  Don't waste them.   It's all about wisdom in organizing and prioritizing.

-  Continue with your 5 salats as before.  School hours do not interfere with salat timings.  Remember, 5 prayers are the supporting pillars of our lives.  Our dependency on Allah Almighty, the right understanding of our Faith along with practically and regularly offering our prayers form the complete code of life that help us to tread through our earthly path until the end. 
-  Read or listen to at least one ruku (one page) of the Noble Quran with translation in the language your understand.  It takes not more than 10 minutes.   On weekends you can make it two or three rukus;  that would take around 20 minutes.

-  Try to drop in a dollar from your pocket money into your neighborhood masjid's charity box once a month.

-  If you can take time out for Jummah prayers weekly, that would be wonderful.  Otherwise, on long weekends (connected with statutory holidays) that usually start from Fridays, do please go to the masjid with your parents to offer Jummah.  It's a great way to stay in touch periodically with the rest of our community, to feel cheerful and avoid the feeling of isolation.  If you hear too many ahadith quoted during the khutbas, listen to the good ones, ignore the stupid ones, and know that you have no obligation to the man-written hadith.  You need to be embedded in the Noble Quran only as our beloved Prophet (pbuh) did.

You will still have plenty of time to enjoy those computer games, watch TV (make sure the programs are Halal), and help mom and dad with cooking, cleaning and laundry.  I also request the parents to please not be lazy taking your children out on recreation trips .. .. sightseeing, shopping, watching sports events and attending Muslim food fests etc. at the Islamic centers.
