Playgroup Visited Burhani Mahal

This week’s topic in Playgroup was Shelters and Homes. Different types of
shelters and homes for people and animals were discussed throughout the week.
The weeks activities and discussions culminated in a visit to the loftiest of homes,
Burhani Mahal.
On Friday March 14, children went to Burhan Mahal, where our Aqa Moula TUS
lives and give blessings to mumineen.
Children took a plant for small hadiya to present Aqa Maula TUS which is now
hanging in the garden of Gurfah Mubarak. Children did sajda and recited marsiyah
and shahadat of Imam Hussain AS in Aqa Moula’s Bethak Mubarak.
Kids observed the beautiful gardens and pet shelters and fed the pigeons too.
Children received the sharaf to kiss bethak of Aqa Moula TUS. The children were
given salawat milk as they were leaving. One child excitedly told his mother,
“Maula gave me a gift!”
By integrating our cultural values and traditions, children were made aware of our
uniqueness as a community. What unites us all together is our love for our Aqa
Maula Mufaddal Maula TUS. We have the shelter of his blessings over our heads
which protects us from harm.
Other activities that the children did related to the topic, Shelters and Homes:
 camping (in the school premises)
 videos on animal shelters
 Mumin nu ghar (discussion)
 Walk around the school to observe shelters (peoples’ homes, bird nests,
anthills, etc)



The 6th of March 2022 was a Sunday but that didn’t stop us from taking yet another opportunity to pay a loving tribute to Syedna Mohammad Burhanuddin RA on the occasion of his 107th birthday. The day began with a guard of honour to two ex students who are high achievers in Aljamea tus Saifiyah, Karachi as well as the Kidprenuer winners. The combined assembly echoed with the sounds of Rassa in memory of the 52nd Dai al Mutlaq RA and a cake cutting ceremony.

At 9 am the Junior English and Urdu elocution showcased the eloquence of the students of class 5-6 as they dedicated each poem they rendered to the grace, leadership, love and compassion of their beloved Maula RA. Alefiya ben Sh Esmail, Faqih ul Jayed from AJS, an academician and a renowned poetess in English, Urdu and Arabic graced the occasion as judge. Three Yemeni students from AJS also attended the events as guests and enthralled the little ones with a Rassa in their melodious voices.

Traditionally, every year grade X of BHS is taken for a memorable journey to KUN ziyarat. Its not just a travelling experience but a holistic learning and personality building experience. This year’s group was special because there were two batches merged– one batch of 2021 that could not go because of the pandemic and this year’s batch of 2022. The group of 103 took off from the Jinnah International airport at 9:55 am on 20th January 2022 and reached the blessed land of Karbala at night.

As they say, travelling is the mother of all the erudition. Students practically with their teachers learned how to follow the Arkans of ziyarat. From namaz, behori, salam and majlis everything showcased how Muffadal Maula TUS has prepared these young souls. From atraaf ziyarta to hours in the Haram and Imamat namaz–the students did not waste a minute and reaped maximum benefit during every moment of these seven days. As a teacher I witnessed how these students became responsible, confident and managed time efficiently, many a times inspiring the adults.

Students had ample opportunities to recite Marasiyah, giving azaan in the blessed mosque Masjid e Azam bil Kufa and a Majlis that was held in the Shrine of Imam Hussain AS and Maulana Ali SA which was a dream come true. The group returned satiated and grateful in the early morning hours of Friday the 28th of January 2022, where they were greeted by teary-eyed parents who showered the pilgrims with rose petals.

A student at BHS anticipates this Kun safar right from the time he/she steps into the Secondary section. For each group every memory is cherished and authors an important and lifer altering chapter in their lives.


Young BHS Delegates at MUNIK IBA


The students of Grade 10 at Badri High School participated in Model United Nations IBA Karachi or MUNIK, the flagship event of the institute’s Public Speaking Society. Students debated on contemporary global issues on this year’s theme “Impact through Inclusion” in a mock setting of the United Nations.

The 12th edition of the event was graced by His Excellency the President of Pakistan , Dr Arif Alvi on Saturday 5th March 2022 and commended the role of forums such as the MUNIK to encourage discourse and teach students crucial skills including negotiations, diplomacy, and conflict resolution.

This was Badri High School’s maiden participation in an MUN for which they have been training since the last year under MUN Coach Talha Ansari.

The 14 students who represented BHS as MUN delegates came away from the 4 day event more aware, more confident, more purposeful and more grateful to the school for providing them such a life altering opportunity to rub shoulders with peers from other top institutes, politicians and decision makers.
