Should I try talking to another teacher that has been making my life difficult? At today’s optional after school meeting she said I was keeping her past her contractual time... it was optional!!!

Yes. I would say something like, "I just want to make sure that I made myself clear by saying yesterday's meeting was optional for those who chose to attend." Maybe she misunderstood? When teachers miss my union meeting, I put a copy of the agenda in their mailbox and follow up with an email for clarification. Good luck!

Yeah you should have said this meeting is optional so you can leave anytime you want. A lot of the other teachers would probably agree with you and that would probably make her think twice about what she is going to say.

Salam All - Jummah Mubarak! I really like this non-Muslim girl, but recently have been spending time in the masjid and Alhamdullilah been really enjoying it. One session hit me hard about having kids make dua for you, and therefore the importance of finding a righteous spouse. The girl likes me a lot but doesn’t want to convert. I also won’t force her. Although everything’s great now, feel like I had to break it off just for her sake (to not lead her on) and to please Allah. Any advice on this?

Tell me about a time you had a difficult, but necessary, conversation with your partner and the result of it. Did it help you grow? Did it help you get closer? Was it destructive? Etc.
