First Day At The Madrasah

Yesterday was Big H's first day at the madrasah.

He went to the mosque with the neighbours' children and came back two hours later sucking a sweet given to him by his teacher. The classes are conducted Monday to Friday in English and Arabic.

"How was your class, H***n?"

"It was alright."

"Your teacher's a man or a woman?"

"A man." Pause. "He said kef."

"Huh? What's that?"

"He said kef, not Kaf and he said hemzah, not Hamzah."

So Big H will be studying at madrasah and not in a school? or both? Why did you choose a madrasah?

along: Mesti ok...girls no problem punya..what does kafa stand for ye?

anonymous: oh no...the madrasah(s) here are not full time schools...they are just 'sekolah agama petang' or after school classes for reading the Quran and arabic and fardhu ain. They are normally part of the local mosque.

Kalau dia belajar KAFA kat Johor, nanti mesti dia lagi heran sebab RA disebut RE.
