Hadith of the Month

ععَنْ أَبِي نَضْرَةَ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي وَسَطِ أَيَّامِ التَّشْرِيقِ"يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ أَلَا إِنَّ رَبَّكُمْ وَاحِدٌ وَإِنَّ أَبَاكُمْ وَاحِدٌ. أَلَا لَا فَضْلَ لِعَرَبِيٍّ عَلَى أَعْجَمِيٍّ وَلَا لِعَجَمِيٍّ عَلَى عَرَبِيٍّ وَلَا لِأَحْمَرَ عَلَى أَسْوَدَ وَلَا أَسْوَدَ عَلَى أَحْمَرَ إِلَّا بِالتَّقْوَى."

مسند أحمد 22978. المحدث ابن تيمية. خلاصة حكم المحدث إسناده صحيح

Abu Nadrah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said during the middle of the day at the end of the pilgrimage, "O people, your Lord is one and your father Adam is one. There is no favor of an Arab over a foreigner, nor a foreigner over an Arab, and neither white skin over black skin, nor black skin over white skin, except by righteousness."

School News
  1. February is National Black History month, a month where we appreciate all of our African American legends who fought for what we take for granted today, equality. Although, equality has always been an ongoing struggle within our nation and communities; it is a concept that has been extensively stressed upon in Islam. More than fourteen hundred years ago, on the day of conquest of Makkah, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) told the Muslim Ummah: "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety (taqwa) and good action. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves."
    Thus, this month we will focus on equality. Students will appreciate the struggle/scarifies made by black individuals. Moreover, we should not favor others based on their wealth, power, or their race. We should treat black, white, rich, or poor equally. As parents and teachers, we must teach our children to treat everyone equally and with respect.

  2. The weather has definitely gotten a lot colder; please dress appropriately. Students should wear several layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy clothing. It is important that we all be informed and prepared for any upcoming severe weather. Therefore, M.C.J.H.S will be using WCBS-TV, Channel 2/ www.CBSNewYork.com, and ABC, Channel 7 to give you reports on school closings, or any other important information you will need. Once again, we recommend that everyone stay informed with weather forecasts, so that we may have a safe winter season.

  3. We are excited to announce that this year with the help of our parents, the sixth, seventh and eighth grade girls at Muslim Center Junior High School are being offered an opportunity to participate in an after school basketball team. The season will begin at the beginning of February by our coach Ms. Karolina.
    Practice sessions will be held from 3:30p.m. to 5:00p.m. on Tuesdays & Thursdays. Pickup and drop-off arrangements must be made by parents accordingly.

  4. Update: Fundraising Dinner has been moved to May 12th, 2018.
