Contemporary Studies: Khalid Kark
In the ML-1 class we continued with the topic of remembering Allah, we had a discussion of how important it was to remember Allah outside of the daily prayers and we discussed various ways of doing that in the class by asking the class to give examples. We then covered the recent elections and what it meant to be a Muslim in America today. We discussed how the kids felt and how Islam teaches us to respect the leaders of your country even though they are not Muslims.
Overall the class was very engaged except for a couple of girls.

We read etiquettes of Mosque today and kids participated very nicely. Assistants listened to the assigned hw. We still have a lot of 7/8 years old especially the new ones who are trying to memorize Salat. The older ones who know salat already will be given the meanings to memorize.
