Student Activism # SaveBasit
RSA students support their teacher, Br. Ahmed Abdelbasit during his incarceration at the Elizabeth Detention Center. Within the classroom, students have explored the idea of social justice, not only as Americans, but as Muslim Americans. We hope you take the time and read this #SaveBasit special edition newspaper of The Rising Times.
A Memorable Sports Day
Our annual Sports Day is always a special day. RSA students, staff, parents and alumni enjoy a day full of activities, games, train ride, zoo visit, a yummy barbecue and the bottle rocket competition. The highlight of our Sports Day was the great Khutba about Ramadan given by our senior Hassan Elsaid! May Allah guide our youth to be among the righteous. Ameen..
