On May 31st, 2022, Al Haadi School invited Shaykh Mahdi Rastani to the school. Shaykh Mahdi is an instructor at the Mizan Institute (https://www.mizaninstitute.org/instructors), the Religious Director for Wisdom Academy (https://www.wisdomacademy.net/) and the Resident Aalim of City of Knowledge center in Dallas (https://cfkdfw.org/). We thank him for accepting our invitation and gracing us with his presence.
Students of grades 4/5 began the program with a recitation of a Surah along with its translation, followed by an extensive interview-like discussion with Shaykh Mahdi on the topic of friendship. The program concluded with a beautiful nasheed performed by grade 1 students.
