This is the story of a school girl who has to write an essay about her hero – any guesses for who she chooses?!
“For a couple of days the same question continued puzzling Anum; “Who do I aspire to be like?” Then, whilst she was busy helping her mum with chores it suddenly came to her. It now seemed so obvious, and she couldn’t believe it hadn’t come to her earlier. She told her family about her idea and they were all really impressed. but Anum then began having second thoughts…”
A wonderful read aloud with younger children, or for the older ones to devour on their own!
Remember No Hands, No Legs, No Worries?
Meet Chris, another amazing person who has not let his setbacks define him either…
This is so cute! And i love the verse that Towards Jannah used which sums it up perfectly: As the Almighty tells us in S.Shams, ‘And by the soul and He who perfected it’ ‘He inspired the soul to know what is wrong and right’ (91:7-8)
May Allah help us to keep blowing that flame inside their little hearts Inshallah!

We Are Muslims 1 – WUDU’ (Lyrics)
Vs. 1 This is the way we make wudu’,
make wudu’, make wudu’.
This is the way we make wudu’ before we say our prayer.
Vs. 2 This is the way we wash our hands,
Vs. 3 This is the way we wash our mouth,
Vs. 4 This is the way we wash our nose,
Vs. 5 This is the way we wash our face,
Vs. 6 This is the way we wash our arms,
Vs. 7 This is the way we wash our head,
Vs. 8 This is the way we wash our feet,
Vs. 9 Now we are Muslims nice and clean,
Lyrics by Noor Saadeh

It is on a similar vein that Buzz Ideazz was born, to try and raise our children with a strong Muslim identity and a deep love for the faith. May He continually guide us to so help nurture that in our families, Inshallah!
