Rising Star Academy Celebrates Black History Month
Mashallah RSA students from grades Prek -12th, with the help of our dedicated teachers, worked tremendously hard to make this event not only successful, but a day of learning about the hardships and accomplishments of inspiring black people. Students were enthusiastic in presenting their projects, and were able to learn from each other, Alhamdulilah. Our RSA community strives to follow the legacy of Prophet Mohamed, by establishing the foundation of equality and tolerance. RSA strongly encourages our students to learn about the diversity around them and the importance of recognizing the struggles and triumphs of blacks from all around the world, from different time periods in history. 

يَ ا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ - 49:13
“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” (49:13)
