Assalamu alaikum BHA families,

Ramadan Kareem to everyone. May Allah (SWT) make it a blessed month and shower all of us with His mercy, forgiveness, health, and free us from the Hell fire.

As you all know that the month of Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an, religious studies, and ibadah. So the NJHS (National Junior Honor Society) and NHS (National Honor Society) chapters of our school felt that it is a great opportunity to get closer to Allah by increasing our knowledge about our religion and receive some extra ajar (reward) with the following competitions.

Winners will be announced after Ramadan, and they will be rewarded at the NHS bazaar, insha’Allah.

We are planning to start posting Islamic questions every other day during Ramadan to make it more convenient for participants. They will be sent out, even during weekends and the break using Google Classroom. One to three questions will be posted, and the answers will become visible after the due date.

The points from the trivia will be added and the students with the highest participation and accuracy will be given prizes. There will be mainly multiple-choice questions. There will be some short answer questions and very few true/false questions. Insha’Allah, we hope everyone will take some time out of their day to search online, answer them, and gain the ajr, insha’Allah.

Google Classroom Codes for Trivia: Join with the first and last name of the student!

Grades K and TK please join the Google classroom with this code: sd46nqa

Grades 3rd-5th please join the Google classroom with this code: 7zqnf23
Grades 6th-11th please join the Google classroom with this code: oj4gxva

Please join as soon as possiblebefore Ramadan so the students can see the first set of questions at 6:30 am on April 2, the first day of Ramadan. There will be two days for students to answer and submit the answers.

The purpose of this contest is to give a chance for students to express their creativity and love for Ramadan. This also allows students to become more in touch with their feelings and spiritual level during this holy month. Insha’Allah, everybody will be granted Allah’s reward.

• 3rd through 5th graders – nine lines

The art contest is made to express everybody’s creativity and unique style. Students are only allowed to participate in ONE category.
