(Her email message to the school)
My name is Aneeqa Abid and I am a senior in high school. I attended Dar Un Noor Academy from 3rd grade to 6th grade (2008-2012) before I moved to Saudi Arabia and then to Fayetteville, Arkansas. Dar Un Noor was an amazing school where I learned most of my knowledge of Islam and I am proud to have attended it.
Alhamdulillah, I received my acceptance to Stanford University on Friday(Dec 8,2017)! I would like to share this news with the teachers at Dar un Noor who taught me so much. Without their guidance, love, and duaas, I would not have been able to receive admission to Stanford. If you could please assist me in thanking them, I would greatly appreciate it.

My experience at Dar-Un-Noor was tremendous but if you asked me about my experience while I was there, I would hardly agree. The funny thing about the good things in life is you appreciate them the most when they are long gone which certainly holds true for DNS. I learned a lot while there – from books, from teachers (especially sister Kadijah who was a profound mentor), from friends, and from the institution itself. The school provided me a supportive and nurturing educational environment during my formative years. This, in particular, was a true blessing when I think about the complexities and challenges a lot of my peers faced during the same time at their public institutions. While there, I learned the importance of discipline and hard work, acquired a deeper understanding of my religion, and strengthened my character and values in significant ways, all of which have helped me achieve personal and professional success throughout my life. I am grateful to Dar-Un-Noor for all that it has offered me and encourage you to cherish your time there and work towards making it an even better institution for those who come after you, for that will be your legacy.
