Hadith of the Month

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ السَّخِيُّ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ اللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ الْجَنَّةِ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ النَّاسِ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ النَّارِ وَالْبَخِيلُ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ اللَّهِ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ الْجَنَّةِ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ النَّاسِ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ النَّارِ وَلَجَاهِلٌ سَخِيٌّ أَحَبُّ إِلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ مِنْ عَالِمٍ بَخِيلٍ

سنن الترمذي كتاب البر والصلة باب ما جاء في السخاء 1961



Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Generosity is near to Allah, near to Paradise, near to the people, and far from the Hellfire. Miserliness is far from Allah, far from Paradise, far from the people, and near to the Hellfire. An ignorant generous person is more beloved to Allah the Exalted than a stingy scholar.”

School News
  1. First and foremost we would like to thank all our parents for their involvement and cooperation thus far, and hope you continue to show your support and contribution in the days to come. Last month, 2nd grade’s bake sale raised $1,325.00, these funds will be designated for field trips and other activities! We would also like to thank our parents once again for their generous donations towards the Rohingya Relief Hasanah Hunt. MCJHS was able to raise $9,500.00 in efforts to help our brothers and sisters who are suffering. We presented a check to Helping Hands for Relief and Development and will send the remaining funds to Islamic Relief.

  2. We want to start 2018, on the right foot by teaching our students one of the most important virtues in Islam, Generosity.
    Generosity is not limited to giving charity through money, but we want to show our students how important any act of kindness is, and how it can make a difference in their lives. Encourage your child to be generous in their acts of kindness, such as visiting the sick, helping their families, or even smiling and spreading cheer!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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