Q: Salam Alaikum
I am writing to humbly request your help in organizing a field trip to Khadeeja Mosque on Friday, March 4, 2011 inshallah.
I teach at Granger High School where we have just put up an association for the learning of Arabic Culture. The first purpose is to gather our Muslim students, but we can’t use any religious denomination in a school stting.
Part of the activities include visiting an Arabic exhibit at the U of U and continuing at the mosque the same day. The tentative schedule says we should be at the mosque between 1:00 and 1:30 PM. Also, it indicates that the bus should leave for Granger at 2:00 P.M.
Could you please tell me if this possible? We need to know in advance because we have to schedule the bus in advance.

It was great to meet with you and your school. All the students were very well behaved. They asked super questions. May they all be blessed to do more good for humanity.
For other groups: Be here on any Friday of the year by 1:15 pm. Program ends by 2:10pm.
For those that choose our tour/dialogue session: this starts at 2:30pm and ends by 3:15pm.
Requirements: dress no different from how you would for a church event. You would also use the same rules of politeness. We appreciate lots of questions to the one in charge of the tour/dialogue. Keep an open mind, for an open mind is a blessed mind. Welcome.
Allah certainly Knows Best.
