After tasty french toast for breakfast came the tiring part of the day, 'classes'. In classes, we learnt about the similarities between the nafs and the Hulk as they both take over the intellect in anger. We also learn about how the media misguides and misinforms people about Islam. FInally we learnt about why slavery is not allowed morally now days, but was practiced during the time of the Prophet, and how the Prophet showed kindness and hospitality.
We then had sports. We thought we would swim, but due to, cough cough, the weather, it was cancelled. The weather turned last minute, and was just fine, and many campers wanted to go. We improvised and played the volleyball, football and basketball tournaments. We won football and volleyball, but lost basketball. Ah well, "with great victory comes great sacrifice".
In PDT, we first did some quizzes, which were interesting and intriguing. The lateral thinking was much harder than finding the landmarks. We then had two profiles of the admin team, Kulsoom Aunty and Ghalib Uncle, which received a lot of attention. As usual, we had the camp news, daily news and postbag, thanks for all your messages, we are receiving them all. Our PDT session ended with a long, heated debate between Venus and Neptune. The motion of the debate was "Kids should do chores" and Neptune was proposing. Both sides were strong, but the proposing team won.
We are doing really well on points, including sports and PDT alike. Our most thanks go to Kulsoom aunty, our wonderful cook who provides us with amazing, tasty foods. Today the meal was pizza, her signature dish which was pretty BEAST. We are really looking forward to the theme park tomorrow and can't wait to tell you people about it.
And with that...good night.
