16th March 2018 marked the start of IMSSA’s 3 Day Family Camp for the girls from Primary 4 to Secondary 3 at Madrasah As-Soabereen (Bishan and Eunos branches). They were all eager to spend their
first day with their friends that bonded with their friends over breakfast, chatting away with glee.
Following breakfast, about 60 Upper Primary to Tertiary students and Ustazas from Madrasah As-Soabereen (Bishan and Eunos branch) went for an exciting Learning Journey to Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve from 11am to 2 pm. While enroute to Sungei Buloh, the girls experienced the etiquettes of travelling together that included reciting together the dua before travelling, looking out for their groupmates and being mindful while conversing with their friends.
Upon reaching the destination, the girls were introduced to the wetlands in Singapore and on a few interesting facts to encourage them to be Environmentalists; similar to Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).
Later on, they set forth on an exciting Amazing race, which was organised for the students to learn the importance of Caring for the Environment and be Environmentalists, through activities.
The different stations were:
Station 1: The students had to memorise the animals mentioned in the Al-Quran
Station 2: The students were given 1 Litre of water to take Wudhu as a group
Station 3: The students played Charades themed on the history of Prophets
Station 4: The students were tasked to make a pencil holder with the given recycled items such as bottles, newpapers and tissue rolls
Therefore, the lessons learnt were better ingrained into each of the girls’ minds that was evident through the completed camp activity sheet for the day. Alhamdulillah.
One of the most valuable take-away at the end of the race for the students was to learn the essence of the Quran ayat in Surah An-Nur, Verse 45.
وَٱللَّهُ خَلَقَ كُلَّ دَآبَّةٍ مِّن مَّآءٍ ۖ فَمِنْهُم مَّن يَمْشِى عَلَىٰ بَطْنِهِۦ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَمْشِى عَلَىٰ رِجْلَيْنِ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَمْشِى عَلَىٰٓ أَرْبَعٍ ۚ يَخْلُقُ ٱللَّهُ مَا يَشَآءُ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
Allah has created every [living] creature from water. And of them are those that move on their bellies, and of them are those that walk on two legs, and of them are those that walk on four. Allah creates what He wills. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
Surah An-Nur : Verse 45
