Making the Prophet real for your kids & Practical Ideas to do so

Posted:

“In the mid 90’s, as a 12 year old, I remember reading an article from the iconic Trends Magazine that really struck me. The first line of the article asked a question, ‘‘If you asked your child who their hero is, what answer would you get?”

I was just a child myself and the prospect of being a mother was so far removed. Yet, this question fascinated me. I knew what the ‘right’ and ‘Islamic’ answer should be from the ‘perfect’ child but what are the chances of an ordinary Muslim child naming the Prophet Ibrahim or Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon them, as their hero, instead of Spiderman or Superman? It seemed impossible to me.”

Yoga and Islam Activity Day

Posted:

The Children’s Islamic Library help a Yoga and Islam Activity Day. The event was attended by over 70 children (not including under 4s!) – we raised £213 for charity :).

The children attended their yoga sessions, where the instructor linked it in to Islamic stories and movements. They also made crafts about Bibi Zainab (as), played with the Islamic games available, read books and we finished off with Story Time at the end.

Football - Quran and Prayer

What a great role model to show our children to be proud of our faith, no matter where or with whom – and people will respect you for it!

‘Mesut Özil:

“I always recite from Quran before every match. I pray and my team-mates know that they cannot talk to me at this time.”

“At Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo always became happy to hear me when I read Quran or talk about my religion Islam.”‘

82 year old female graduate in Gaza

“Fatima (82 years) recently graduated from Aqsa University in Gaza with a bachelors of Hadith in 2016. This was a dream she couldn’t fulfill earlier when she was young due to the occupation of Palestine and subsequent tragedies. What a role model!”

The Prophet’s hadith: “Seek knowledge from cradle to grave” comes to mind! Subhanallah 🙂 Despite so many difficulties, she managed to do it – what determination!
