This year began with a grand event in MSB Dar es salaam – The Science Fair 2021, based on the theme 

Innovation and Invention, the way forward

The projects reflected the golden words from the sermon of Aqa Moula TUS on the centenary celebration of Aligarh Muslim University:

“The very purpose of education within the Islamic tradition is to put what one knows into practice and derive innovative solutions to local and global challenges, thereby benefitting the societies within which we live in.”

The journey began on 20th January with the orientation of teachers and students. Teachers were divided into 5 teams with the names of famous scientists, Ibn Sina, Al Hayyan, Aristotle, Einstein, and Newton. Each team had a group of 7 students (from class 5- form 4). Teachers facilitated their teams from the beginning till the end. Groups had to follow the steps of scientific procedures and cross checkpoints to earn points.

The climax was on Friday, 9th of April, the day started with dua and an aura of excitement as students were eager to present their projects to the visitors. The projects were judged by a panel of 6 judges, based on the following criteria: scientific principles, innovation, the practicality of the design, and commercial viability. The research of the projects distinctly depicted the scientific concepts in light of the Islamic perspective. Not only was the turnout of the parents and visitors beyond expectations, but also the students’ energy remained vibrant until the event closed at 8.30pm.

The closing ceremony was graciously honored by Janab Amilsaheb, who visited each project with deep interest and listened to the students keenly. The winners were awarded trophies. Indeed, this science fair helped the students to explore their potentials, gain confidence and attain a logical approach towards learning.

A charged atmosphere was evident on the quiet streets around Al Madrasa as once again they bustled with traffic of cars, school buses, bicycles and groups of children on foot heading towards school after a month long vacation.

An equally exciting situation was manifest inside the gates. A host of teachers were very much present from the entrance to the classrooms to greet the children with cordial and warm welcome.  The children, too, eagerly reciprocated with respect and joy.

Alhamdolillah, with raza, dua mubarak and nazaraat of Aqa Moula (Tus), an auspicious beginning sanctified the 1st day of school of the new Academic Year 2021, that is, the barakat of Darees on the niyyat of Syedna Hatim Mohyuddin (RA), Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA) and Al Hayyul Muqaddas Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (RA). 

It was pleasing to note that the new set-up with a reduced school campus to allow for construction of the new buildings did not deter the enthusiasm of coming back to school.

May our children continue to acquire and rise in the quest of Al Ilm year after successive year in this Madrasa which is blessed with constant nazaraat of Aqa Maula (TUS).

May Allah Ta'ala give a long life of sehat and aafiyat to our Mushfiq Maula (TUS) till the day of qyamat. Aameen

TIMUN 2020 provided a vast opportunity to our students from AMSB. Their journey to Arusha, helped them to articulate and think beyond their personal circles. They delved on world issues and shared knowledge with peers from other institutes. They realized their potential and understood the immense opportunities that lie ahead for them. The platform initiated new friendships and expanded their horizons beyond their imagination.

Our students were awarded the Certificate of Outstanding Participation and one of our students, Ebrahim Hakimuddin of Form IV was awarded The Best Male Delegate Award. It was indeed a proud moment for us.

There was an air of excitement, laughter could be heard everywhere, the streets were queued up with school buses, children walking with their bags and anxious parents dropping their children to school.

 All students arrived on time, no laxity in their gait. They were all anxious to be back after the hiatus of 100 days. Dressed smartly in their uniforms, they walked in through the MSB gates, their faces radiant, their eyes seeking their friends. The soothing tones of the Eid Qasida could be heard all over the campus. Their teachers welcomed them with smiles and assurances.

They washed their hands and moved to the assembly hall. The buzz of conversations, the feeling of apprehension, the smiles, the scent of expectation all radiated and reflected amongst the welcome décor of the assembly hall.

The Daily dua was recited, after which Mustafabhai Fidali (Primary HOS) welcomed the students with a short speech. The Primary teachers then enacted a skit to reinforce the need for safety and precautions to be observed in school. Mr Ramadhan (Geography teacher) then welcomed the students and talked about having the right attitude to learn. After that Ruqaiya Rajabali and Khadija Jamalee of Form 4 shared with students a conversation regarding using of games and You-tube for learning purposes. After this, students who had participated in the International Essay writing competition received their certificates.

The Masool then addressed the students and ended by saying that we must be thankful to Almighty Allah Taala for keeping us safe and protected. And we should be also thankful to our President, Hon. John Pombe Magufuli, for taking measures to make our country safe. The assembly ended with Wazifatushukr and National Anthem.
