Read-Aloud Session on the 4th of Dec.

Assalamualaikum everyone.

I'm sorry for the late report on our latest RAS. To cut it short, on that day we have 21 kids with 6 - 8 parents and caregivers. We read 2 books; the first one is read by Kak Halizan (K.Je) entitled, "We Are Muslim, Alhamdulillah" and the second one was read by Kak Nor Ilham (K.Ann), entitled: "Buzz Buzz Buzz". Everybody have some fun and after the second book, the kids were allowed to have a taste of HONEY, specially sponsored by Kak Ann. After this, anyone interested to make HONEY their daily menu, please contact Kak Ann.

Kids have the chance to have a spoonful of the delicious Iranian honey. Posted by Hello

Assalamualaikum everyone.

Alhamdulillah... after some research and guidance from Sis Ninuk, finally I have managed to assembled some friends to form Read-Aloud Kota Bharu.

Officially, I've organized a parent-teacher meeting at Dar Nur al-Zahra' on Oct. 16th. 20 parents came and agreed to be members of RAKB. Alhamdulillah once again.

Because of Allah's command and my love for reading, I really would like to spread the message of reading through read-aloud activities. Through reading, we gain more knowledge. Reading brings us together with love, respect, honesty, peace and tranquility.

O Allah! Help me to help others to love reading and enjoy reading your Quran and other materials. Help me to help others make reading a part of their life style. Help me help children wants to read to improve their language skills, communication skills, self-confident and so on.
O Allah! Bless my mission.

Special Thanks to Kak An, Kak Je and Kak Ina for your kind support. Hopefully our RA will be successful in achieving it's target.
