MCNJ Sunday School Closed This Sunday Nov 4th

Assalaamu Alaykum  wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakaatuhu,
May Allah protect all of us and our families as we get through the recent storm that Allah the Most High in his infinite wisdom has prescribed upon us this past week.  May Allah also give us the patience and wisdom to bear the difficulties imposed on us by this storm and make it as a reminder that there is no might or power except by the will of Allah.
In light of the difficulties many of us are still struggling to overcome due to the recent storm and the lack of power at the Iselin school,  the MCNJ Sunday School will be closed this Sunday.  In shaa Allah, we look forward to resuming the following week, November 11th.  See you all then in shaa Allah and stay safe!
Wa alaykum assalaam wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakaatuhu,
MCNJ Sunday School Administration
