Some great tips from the Quran and ahadith for your older children who may be sitting exams soon!
Now here is a SUPER (and fun!) way to get children involved in giving back this Eid!
Quran Memorisation Series - Idea 1: Teach you child when THEY show interest and a desire to learn the Quran.
Yes, yes, yes!
Forget about Nouman Ali Khan day, this is turning out to be Nouman Ali Khan week 🙂
As a Montessori teacher too, I am all for following the child – teaching them Quran when they show interest and a love to do so. By all means, try, and encourage but don’t force and pressure and compare…
This is a perfect start to our Quran Series – a must-watch!
I saw this and thought it would be a perfect addition to the Bedtime series as an idea for the older ones…so here goes!
Check out the video 🙂
Subhanallah! Definitely one to share with the kids…
Reminds me of the hadith by Imam Ali (as) – “Among men only two are fortunate: the one with a loyal friend, and the one whose mother prays for him.”
This student is fortunate indeed 🙂 Would we do the same for our friends? A good discussion topic perhaps!
Aren’t we one of his awesome creation too? We have the potential to push ourselves in so many ways – check out this one pretty amazing way…
So I have been hinting as to a new series that I would like to introduce leading us all the way to Ramadhan Inshallah…
As you may have guessed, it is to do with the Quran and our children! Ramadhan is THE month of the Quran, and as a mum, I would love for my children to develop closer relationships with the Quran. When thinking about this though, it was clear that there are several aspects to this.
Ummi aunty Merali (aka DON!) always says there are 5 parts: READ, MEMORISE, …UNDERSTAND, APPLY & TEACH.
We have alhamdulillah covered a little bit of learning how to READ through the Arabic Alphabet Series (http://buzzideazz.com/category/arabic/) and so I was torn between MEMORISE and UNDERSTAND – was it more important for my children to memorise, or understand the Quran first?
Somehow, Allah always sends the right thing at the right time, and yesterday I came across this awesome clip from Nouman Ali Khan. As always, the middle path is the one – but what I loved was that even through the process of memorisation, understanding can be achieved – the repetition, slowing down, etc, will allow for a deeper look at the words…
And so for this series, we shall be focussing on tips to help our children (and us!) memorise the Quran inshallah! Then, at a later date, we will hopefully do another series focussing on shifting this memorisation to a deeper understanding and application of the verses.
PLEASE do send in your tips of how you helped your children memorise! As always, I can’t do this without all of your wonderful ideas and creative ways – PM me, or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – look forward to hearing from you and getting started!
Looking for a role model for your teens? How about showing them this article on Lady Khadija? 🙂
This one is not directly about parenting but yet is actually very much related – perhaps you have older kids/teens who are struggling? Or perhaps it is us as parents who are struggling with the fact that our children are not learning it as well as we would like? Or perhaps it is ourselves who are finding the reading/learning of the Quran difficult…
Either way – listen to this gem. Even more apt i think given the month of the Quran that is coming up, and especially apt given the new series that we are about to embark on! More details on that soon insh…
Just yesterday, Confessions of a Muslim MOMma-holic wrote a very apt post on how doing Community Service with children is a great way to develop our children’s characters and being…
A few week prior, this amazing day took place! People in London got involved in making and distributing over 1000 sandwiches to the homeless!
Check out the video here 🙂
P.S. If you are looking for ideas to get children involved in giving, check out our series on Fundraising and Charity with children – there are LOADS of ideas on there…especially with Ramadhan, the month of giving around the corner, might be a good start to getting ideas flowing!
