This year, to commemorate the auspicious occasion of Milad Mubarak of the 52nd Dai Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA, and the 53rd Dai Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS, the children of Fatemi Madrasa took part in community service in their respective local communities. They participated in activities such as giving food to the needy, donating books to a library, toys/kits/supplies to a hospital, warm clothes to a shelter for the homeless, etc.
The Fatemi Madrasa initiative to promote community service on the occasion of Milad Mubarak was very successful behamdillah. All reports were arazed to Syedna on Milad Mubarak. Syedna was very pleased and bestowed doa mubarak for the children of Fatemi Madrasa and for Mu’allimeen who participated in this activity for khidmat of Dawat and service of their communities. Syedna also bestowed doa mubarak for the children’s success in their education in Fatemi Madrasa and in their schools and colleges.

For my community service project, I went and helped a Syrian refugee family by helping their kids with their homework and teaching them little bits of English. I taught them a little bit of math and small words like sun, moon, sister, brother, etc. This helped me realize how not everyone has the privileges we have, and we should always be grateful, and how small things like explaining homework is very important to them, especially when they can’t speak English. They have only been here a month and are still adjusting. The kids must find it very difficult to adapt in school because they do not know what is going gone since they only speak Arabic and they must be very lost.
