You should all have received a subscription email from Faith Essentials today. This is an online Islamic Education platform that is relevant for all family members. They have a very well structured curriculum delivered by well known speakers like Dr. Yasir Qadhi, Sh. Omar Suleiman, Ust. Yasmin Mogahed, etc. Regularly, this is a $15/month service, but we are providing this service to our students and their families free of charge. We paid the dues through February 27th. We will renew the service next semester based on the feedback we receive from you. That is, if you and your children are benefiting from the service, we’ll continue to pay for it until the end of the school year.
When you open the email you received from Faith Essentials, you will be asked to go to the portal (https://portal.faithessentials.online/) and login using the email address provided in the email you received. Instructions in the email are not very clear, but the first time you login you need to select the option that says “Forgot your password?” at the bottom of the page and enter your email address. This will send you an email to reset your password. After resetting your password, just login and start using the service.
A few points:
- Please use the email address that was sent to you in the faith essentials email. This is the email address you used when registering your child to MAP Sunday school and your account will only work with this email address.
- Your license gives access to all family members. That is, multiple family members can use the same login information.
- Install the faith essentials app from iOS/Android stores to your mobile devices for easy access. You can also access the portal from their web site.
- If you need any technical help, please contact faith essentials directly via firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not have any control over this platform. If you cannot resolve your issue with Faith Essentials directly, please let us know.
- Make sure your child uses the platform on a regular basis. You can either follow the recommended courses on the platform or just pick individual lessons.
- We will ask for feedback about this platform in a few months. When asked, please fill out the survey.
We hope you start using the platform right away.
