September Character Trait 
Character Trait: Responsibility
Effective Habit: Be Proactive
Allah's name: Al-Qadir

In sha Allah in September, students will be encouraged to:
- Be accountable for what they do, for their actions, and behavior.
- Do the right thing at the right time, so others can trust and depend on them.
- When they choose to make a poor decision, they admit to it, apologize for it, and then take steps to rectify it.
- Be Proactive. Act in advance of a future situation, rather than reacting after events have transpired. Take control and making things happen rather than just adjusting to a situation or waiting for something to happen.
Hadith of the Week

Narrated Aisha: Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “Do you know who will go first on the Day of Resurrection to the shade of Allah, Who is Great and Glorious?” Then on receiving the reply that Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) knew best, he said, “Those who when given what is right accept it, when asked for something give freely, and who judge in favour of others as they do for themselves.”
Transmitted by Ahmad.

Al-Tirmidhi – Hadith 3711
