Unable to log in / lesson queries:  
If you or your child are unable to log in for the lesson or have any queries related to the Madrasah lessons, then please contact the head of the class your child is in. Some parents have contacted me on Saturday just as the Madrasah commences and regrettably I have not been able to support due to lack of complete information by the parent regarding the child’s class. It is essential that you are aware of the class your child/ren are in, the teachers names and their contact details.

We need Pre-loved books for al Mahdi Library:
Our Madrasah is in the process of setting up a library at the Al Mahdi Centre, for use when we resume on-site programmes. The library will be utilized by the children and all community members. To expand the present collection in the library, we are requesting book donations. If you would like to donate suitable books on Islam, either new books or in good pre-loved condition, then kindly register the book titles you would like to donate at the below link:

Thereafter the books which we require will be selected from your list and you will be informed about the delivery arrangements.  Kindly DO NOT drop off any books at the Centre. We will contact you in due course to confirm the delivery arrangements such as dates and times, as well as to relay any other information. We would be grateful for your contribution of books.

Announcement of results: Dar Al Zahra Courtyard Design Competition:
We are pleased that Nine entries were received for this competition. Much thought has been put by all the participants and the standard of the work is wonderful and amazing, MashAllah. The assessment of entries by a panel of judges is ongoing. Look out for announcement of the results at Wessex Jamaat event to celebrate wiladat of Imam Husayn a.s., Abul Fadhl Abbas and Imam Zaynul Abideen a.s. to be held on 17th March, 2021.

Let’s continue to offer special prayers to Allah SWT, by wasila of Ahlul Bayt a.s.  for protection of all from the epidemic due to the COVID-19 virus and for the cure of all who are unwell. May you and your loved ones be granted safety from all calamities.
Request you to kindly remember in your duas all in my team of dedicated Madrasah volunteers.
