We received a very touching testimonial from a father recently. It contained some golden advice which we want to share with you all. Receiving the du’as of the parents in our society are a huge driving force behind our work 🙏
I’ve heard and had multiple conversations with peers over the past few years in relation to having a fully-fledged plan, a direction in life and a well-defined vision with a complete understanding of one’s role in the world and the impact they want to leave behind.
The outcome of the conversation always seem to be the same. The other person feels incredibly stressed out, out of their depth and like a failure with little to no clarity on what it is they are doing.
Consistency nurtures sincerity because it trains your good deeds to transcend all purposes besides Allah. When you maintain your good deeds through thick and thin, no matter the people around you, no matter where you are, no matter how you feel, no other purpose is left except for Allah. To build sincerity, build consistency in your good deeds and take them with you everywhere you go.
Results day is a pivotal day for many school students around the UK, and is without doubt quite a stressful experience. We’ve put together some small pieces of advice in preparation for the big day!
“Dealing with students who have received unfair grades over the past couple of days, it has been really heartbreaking to see how a student’s socio-economic background has had such an effect on their grades as evidenced in our guide. Education does not discriminate, but once again the system has and I feel every student deserves better.”
‘The methodology of standardising grades is definitively flawed. Nearly 40% of students saw their grades marked down after moderation from the predictions issued by teachers (Ofqual 2020, p. 135), with those from a lower socio-economic background being impacted the most, as if only to worsen the disparity students from BAME and lower socioeconomic backgrounds already face.’
