Dear Parents, 

Salamun alaykum,

Yawmul Jum’ah Mubarakah

Pray that you and your families are in good health.

Madrasah timetable for the Summer (Academic Year 2018 /19) can be found here.

Note the following:

  • Shahru Ramadhan: Expected to commence from 6th / 7th May. There there will be no Madrasah session from 11th May to 8th June, 2019.
  • During Shahru Ramadhan there will be special youth dua sessions where children will be learning recitation of various duas. These are usually held on Monday to Wednesday from 6:30pm. More details will be circulated in the Wessex Jamaat programmes broadcast.

  • Parents Workshop: Sunday   30th June, 2019. Kindly save this date.
  • Last day of this term: 20th July, 2019.  

Parents workshop: We are delighted that Hajjah Masumabai Jaffer, Resident Alimah of KSIMC, accompanied by Sheikh Abbas Jaffer have kindly agreed to facilitate an interactive workshop for parents InshAllah on Sunday 30th June, 2019.  

A key objective of this session is to deliberate on the upbringing of our children, the essential role of parents towards their Tarbiyyah and how to support them in their development.

It is essential that all parents attend this meeting. Your attendance will motivate you to support the Madrasah and our children towards reinforcing at home what is learnt in Madrasah.

The shape of the day would be as follows:

  • 10:30 am Arrival /Regsitration
  • 10: 45 am Recitation from Qur’an followed by welcome address
  • 10:55 am Workshop / Open discussion / Question and Answer . (Include tea /comfort   break)
  • 1:00pm Dhuhrayn Salatul Jamaat
  • 1:30pm Refreshments / End of the day

Qur’an Hifdh competition: Shahru Ramadhan 1440 A.H. : Please encourage your child/ren to participate in this noble programme. Details being sent by separate email.


Dua after Maghribayn Salat: All children attending Salatul Jamat had been set an assignment prior to the December holidays. They are required to fluently recite duas of taqibat after Maghribayn salat. Additional challenge is to memorise the 2 duas.

Further students who had not yet completed previous year’s assignment of Dhuhrayn duas are required to do so. Assessment is being done this term. You are requested to support your child in this task.  

Attendance: Every child is expected to attend Madrasah regularly and on time. Madrasah meets only once a week so a single absence can definitely affect your child’s progress in Deeni Talim. You will agree that absenteeism does affect not only the Madrasah programme, but performance of the absent child. You are requested to take this into consideration. 


The Madrasah day commences from 9:55 a.m. Please ensure that you child is present on time at their respective points either in Bungalow or Main gents hall for the dua session. Thereafter, the first lesson on the timetable, Qur’an classes commences.

Late arrival:

Children with classes in the main building who arrive late are required to first report to the Admin for registration.

Report Absenteeism: It has been noted that a couple of children remain absent from Madrasah without notification. If your child is unable to attend Madrasah then could you kindly notify the Madrasah on the day with reason for absence either by an email to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or SMS text to 0786 475 8000. 

When a child is absent without notification SMS text will be sent to parent to alert you on the need to communicate this absence.

Children leaving early:

If for any reason you may need to take your child/children home early from Madrasah, you MUST please inform, at earliest on the Madrasah day the Admin team, either by an email to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or SMS text to 0786 475 8000,.

When you come to collect them, please do not go directly to your child’s class. You are required to meet the Admin team who will then call the child from the classroom. This is important for safeguarding and to avoid causing any disturbance in the class.

Meanwhile, as has been the case, feel free to contact me if there is any clarification you may need.
