Maulidur Rasul


Yesterday our school had a Maulidur Rasul celebration.
(Am not too sure if the use of 'celebration' is appropriate. Any other suggestions of a verb?)
The celebration was quite late actually, as yesterday was already the last day of Rabiul Awal.
Praise be to Allah, everything went well even though the students were in chaos after the second slot ended sooner than it was supposed to be.

At approximately 8.30 a.m the kids berarak around the school while reciting the selawat.
They were in their best clothes and with banners and all.
I think they enjoyed everything that is not related to lessons in their classrooms.
Don't we all when we were in school??

The second slot was a ceramah by an Ustaz from Pejabat Agama Daerah Setiu.
(I can't remember his name..)
He did a splendid job I must say, because all of the students were quiet and well-behaved throughout his ceramah.
Maybe he knew how to tackle the kids' attention.
He did include Q&A, quizzes and jokes in his ceramah.
So the students weren't bored with his speech.

Then the kids had a "khat" contest for Level 2 and colouring contest for Level 1.
I didn't get to watch the kids showing their Jawi-writing and colouring skills, as I was preparing for the last slot of the celebration.
So no pictures of them 'in action'.

I was in charge of the movie show yesterday.
The kids watched "Muhammad The Last Prophet" a.k.a "Muhammad Utusan Terakhir".
It was an animation actually, and frankly I think it was very interesting.
The dialogues are in Bahasa, therefore my students had no problems understanding the story or our beloved prophet, Muhammad (PBUH).
The only problem was their concentration.

I now realize that watching a 90 minutes movie/animation is a CHALLENGE for the students, especially the little ones.
But Alhamdulillah, some of the students did learn something from the story.
I wish Malaysians can come up with this kind of story in the future.
It's a good and easier way for our kids to learn about Islam.
(My students sangat lah malas datang kelas Fadhu Ain! So this somehow helps them learn what they missed in their Sirah class.)

Phewww, I sound like an Ustazah, right? =D
(Apa salahnya once in a while perasan..)
Till then, wassalam..~
