Over the past weeks, Verulam has been facing severe water shortages, leaving many families in distress. Hearing of their plight, our compassionate community sprang into action. Led by the initiative of our parents and learners, we launched a fundraising campaign to provide relief to those affected.


Through the unwavering support and contributions of our generous donors, including parents and learners of Al-Falaah College, we were able to collect funds to purchase an astounding 700 x 5-litre bottles of water. This remarkable feat would not have been possible without the collective effort and dedication of each member of our community.

On behalf of Al-Falaah College, we extend our deepest gratitude to all who contributed to this noble cause. Your selflessness and compassion have made a significant impact on the lives of those experiencing hardship in Verulam. Your generosity not only quenched thirst but also brought hope and comfort to those in need.

The distribution of the water bottles in Verulam stands as a testament to the power of unity and empathy. It is a reminder that even in the face of challenges, our community remains steadfast in its commitment to serving others and making a positive difference in the world.

As we reflect on this heartening display of kindness and solidarity, let us continue to embody the values of compassion and service in all that we do. Together, we can create a brighter, more resilient future for all.
Once again, JAZAKALLAH to our donors for your generosity and to our entire Al-Falaah College community for your unwavering support.

On Thursday 15 February AFC hosted a career roadshow for Grade 12 learners. The event is organised by the University of the NorthWest and it’s the third year running that AFC hosted this event.

 

About 25 tertiary institutions showcased their particular campuses and shared information on criteria and application process. Learners were given time to engage with the institutions they were interested in.

On Tuesday, the 27th of February, the High School Islamiyah team, under the guidance of Ml Badat, embarked on an enlightening Tarbiyah Programme titled "Ramadhan Globally". This program was designed to give our learners a comprehensive understanding of how Muslims worldwide observe and experience Ramadhan.


The event was a collaborative effort, with all grades from 7 to 12 participating wholeheartedly. Each grade was assigned a specific country to research, delve into its unique Ramadhan traditions, and present their findings. What made this presentation even more engaging was the requirement for the introduction to be delivered in the language of the assigned country, adding an authentic touch to the experience.


Countries spanning the globe, including Japan, China, Brazil, Turkey, Finland, Russia, Palestine, and many others, were explored and presented. From the varying durations of fasting to the diverse cuisines enjoyed by Sehri and Iftaar, from the customs surrounding Taraweeh prayers to the social challenges Muslim communities face, every aspect was meticulously researched and shared.


Following the insightful presentations, a captivating experiential setup awaited both teachers and learners. Traditional foods from the showcased countries were available for tasting, offering a sensory journey through the diverse culinary landscapes of Ramadhan. Additionally, various items representing the cultural heritage of each country adorned the display, allowing attendees to immerse themselves further in the rich tapestry of global Ramadan traditions.


The Tarbiyah Programme was met with resounding success, garnering praise from all who attended. It not only deepened our understanding of Ramadan but also fostered a sense of appreciation for the cultural diversity within the Muslim community. As we reflect on the event, we pray that Allah accepts the efforts of all involved and grants us the wisdom to continue embracing and celebrating our differences.


In conclusion, "Ramadhan Globally" was not just an event; it was a journey of cultural discovery, unity, and appreciation. We look forward to more enriching experiences that promote understanding and harmony within our school community.

Laylatun nisf min shaban/
Laylatul Bara'ah/
Shab bara'ah*
The night of freedom from the fire of Jahannam. 
 
Allah (swt) is extremely merciful and loves us so much. Allah gives us opportunities to come closer to him and become his favorites.
 
That is why Allah has given us some special days and nights like Laylatur Bara'ah 
(15th Shaban, Sunday night 25th February )  in which Allah himself asks us to tell him whatever we want and Allah will accept our wishes.
