Mumtaza Islamic Festival or also known as MIF is an annual event which is mainly aimed to commemorate Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday (PBUH) and celebrate Mumtaza Islamic School’s anniversary by conducting some activities in terms of Islamic festivals, seminar, performances, competitions and charity bazaar, which are open for all National and International schools in Indonesia to participate.
Graduation is a meaningful event to honor our graduates and celebrate their achievement. This event also provides an opportunity to recognize Mumtaza Islamic School’s teachers and staffs who are dedicated to providing the highest quality of education and to making a positive difference in the lives of our students.
Sanlat (Ramadan Program)
To teach the students the real meaning of Ramadan month, the school creates a Ramadan program known as Sanlat (Pesantren Kilat). In this program, besides learning to fast and perform taraweh prayer, the students also learn about charity and become volunteers to help those who are in need and share a moment with orphans and elderly persons.
To bridge familial relationship among Mumtaza teachers and staffs and their families, Mumtaza Islamic School creates family gathering by inviting them and the families to spend a two day vacation. In this gathering, some games of bonding are carried out and door prizes are given to appreciate them, especially those who are loyal and show satisfying performance as well as give significant contribution to Mumtaza.
Eid al-Adha Festival
Eid al-Adha is a Muslim festival, which lasts for several days. The festival celebrates a story about Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) who was told by Allah to sacrifice his son Ishmael to prove his faith to Allah and he decided to follow Allah’s command. In this festival, the school aims at teaching the students to remember Ibrahim’s loyalty and obedience to Allah above all others. Because of his actions, Eid al-Adha is also known as the Festival of Sacrifice. One important tradition to teach the students is sacrificing an animal, like a cow or goat, and donating the meat to people who cannot afford it.
Mumtaza Islamic school also shares some national holidays with its students such as Kartini Day, Independence Day, and Heroes’ Day by conducting activities in terms of competitions, social services and donations that can inspire them to follow the steps of Indonesian Heroes who have sacrificed themselves for Indonesia, especially in educational aspect.
Parent Orientation Day
