    3 weeks off school

    My son wants to go abroad with my mum for a holiday he's really excited but it would mean he's taking 3 weeks off school, the main reason I want him to go is to strengthen the Arabic language and also to see how the life style is over there.

    3 weeks off is it worth it??

    I'm indecisive !!!!
    There is no such thing as an Israel,
    It is occupied-palestine


    Should the Jews have been given a homeland?

    YES...........in germany,

    the world should have given the jews germany as payment for the holocaust

    Depends on how old he is. My niece just came back from Pakistan yesterday after a month. She's in Gr.1 and missed three weeks of school (one week was march break).

    Allahu alam, but dont u need to get permission from the school to take them on holiday during term time ? u should find out otherwise can end up in a lot of hotwater with social services. i know someone just had loads of hassle because they took their family back home for an extra 5 weeks during term time and the kids missed school.
    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

    The Prophet said:

    "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

    muslim

    Narrated 'Abdullah:

    The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


    "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

    By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

    [Recorded by Imam Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhi]

    Re: 3 weeks off school

    I think sometimes you can learn more from travelling, interacting with different people and having to deal with different situations that arise on the spot......life skills

    Hmmm the schools only give 2 weeks authorised leave. Make you sure check properly, and dont get yourself fined but each local authority is different.

    Nonetheless it will be a nice time out for you as well Insha'allah Hope all is well.

    Re: 3 weeks off school

    Wouldn't it be better if you sent him some time in the school holidays, seen as they are not far from us now?

    Whilst travelling is beneficial, if it means that your son starts to lag behind in the curriculum, it is very hard to catch up again, and this will place him at a disadvantage in the later years..

    Something to think about....
    وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمۡ ءَامِنُواْ كَمَآ ءَامَنَ ٱلنَّاسُ قَالُوٓاْ أَنُؤۡمِنُ كَمَآ ءَامَنَ ٱلسُّفَهَآءُ*ۗ أَلَآ إِنَّهُمۡ هُمُ ٱلسُّفَهَآءُ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا يَعۡلَمُونَ


    And when it is said unto them: believe as the people believe, they say: Shall we believe as the foolish believe? Beware! They indeed are the foolish? But they know not.

    Re: 3 weeks off school

    could your mum change her hol dates so it coincides with school holidays? or so he only has to take minimal time off?

    also discuss it with the school and see what their policy is

    Yea I spoke to them just now, they told me that kids are not authorised to go on holiday not even for one day !! I was like since when?? Cuz two years ago they gave him 2 weeks early to leave school, so this new rule is since April last year
    Also she said that if a child goes on holiday without school consent they send a letter home after 10 days asking parent to bring child back into school or he/she loses the place in that school. But technically that means every child can have 10 days lol which contradcits what I was told :/

    Re: 3 weeks off school

    Go for it. He will learn more from 3 weeks of travelling than he will from 3 weeks of school. However, it might be better to send him when he is a little older, say around 11 or 12. He'll learn more then and return more mature as well.

    Re: 3 weeks off school

    I don't think he should leave school for 3 weeks, thats quite a long time. Especially now since you asked the school and they said no, best to keep him in school I think. If its possible for your mum to delay her travel dates a bit would be good, you can change the dates of the ticket but they might charge a small fee. Would be good for your son to go with his grandmother, I'm sure he'd have a great time. Its a shame if he's not able to though.

    I vote Yes. Give the young man a break, man!

    Honestly, though, 3 weeks isn't something he's gonna regret for the rest of his life, esp. since he's only in school, not higher education. Let him go!

    Oh, that's very strange, then.

    I'm sure if you talk to the school, they'll allow it, though.

    Schools are usually lenient when its the end of term, best to ask them again and if they say no, then its a no sadly. You don't want the social services etc to get involved.
