I used to go to a public school, but I told my mom I hated it. Everything there was different from this Islamic private school. In the public school I went to I used to hear so much cursing and see so much fighting. I hated hearing all of the bad things and seeing people argue and argue all of the time.
When I came here it was so different. I didn’t hear or see any of that. I heard all good things such as Mashallah if they see something nice and they would say, Alhamdulillah all the time because they were thankful for everything Allah gave them. There were only a few Muslims in my old school and I didn’t like that. This Islamic school was full of Muslims and they were covered too, I loved that. Everyone in this school had manners and respect; they were all nice to me and helped me out with everything. I loved it so much. It was totally different from public school. I was taught Arabic, the Quran and Islamic studies in this private school. I loved it so much especially because I got to go to a school that had Islam in it. In each class they would bring up Islam. In science class the teacher would always bring science with Islam and I just love that. All of my friends were Muslim; if I ever needed advice they would guide me to the right path. I couldn’t ask for anything better than that. I was always happy coming to school. If I needed help with anything the teacher would always help me till I understood it. I love this Islamic school. It’s such an amazing school. Inshallah I graduate from this school
