Ramadan Activities for Young Ones

Posted:

So here is what one mum did to help her kids benefit from this month in so many amazing ways!

Imam Ali (AS) bags for the less fortunate: Great activity for little toddlers. They love filling bags. First explained how Imam Ali always helped people…. Went to the store had her pick items she thinks everyone would need on a daily basis- comb, toothbrush, snacks. Came home and she packed everything into ziplock bags and asked the grandparents to come home to help write Hadith from Imam Ali (as) on the hearts which we put in the bags. IA to disburse them throughout the holy month.

Good Deeds Tree: pick a good deed from the jar, implement it and get to decorate a heart ornament to put on the tree. Just like a tree grows beautiful hearts good deeds will make our hearts grow and make us shine. The tree will light up every time they were able to do the good deed.

Quran Wall: Use this wall to learn all about the awesomeness of this great book. Focusing on Surah Qadr memorization and suwer of Juz Ammah. Each time she memories a Surah she gets to put the sticker on the Juz Ammah tree.

 We have a light up Quranic box which we will put different objects that are in the Quran inside and begin discussions from them. Example- we will put animals in the box. Create excitement by turning the lights on the box on and off, open the box and talk about the story of Prophet Nuh. Box credit goes to HIC Quran Club.

Following the Footsteps of Imam Ali (AS):
Learn all about our amazing Imam and give children examples from his life the little ones can implement. Children will cut out their own footsteps and put it on the wall to help them see the path to Allah is always going to be through the our Ahlul Bayt and Quran. We will post different activities we do that relate to the Imam on the Black cloth and end it with his martyrdom.

Advent Calendar: Each bag has a good deed to do, a Quranic Word, money for sadka. Bags are decorated to also show days of sadness (black bags) and happiness (glitter bags). Some bags have special presents to help reinforce the extra special days and likewise for the days of mourning.

Our Blessings Garden: Helping children see how beautiful our blessings are and how we need to nurture them and appreciate them.
Each flower will have a theme in the center and the petals we will write why that blessings is important to us. One of the theses will be Allah- we are thankful to have the one and only beat God. On the petals we will put Allah’s names and discuss how lucky we are to have Allah who is Al-Khaliq he made everything and go into discussion of all the creations.. How Allah is Al-Wadud and go into discussion of how He loves us soo much.

Islamic Story Boxes

Posted:

You may have heard of Story Boxes – where boxes are converted into story telling opportunities with the right props and decor.

Here are some examples of Islamic Story Boxes sent in by a mum!

One to note for today in particular is the one on Imam Ali (as) – Khushali Mubarak to all of you, btw! There’s also one on Hadith-ul-Kisa, the narration of Thaqalayn at the Prophet’s death and the House of Grief of Bibi Fatima (as) after the Prophet died.

Wafat of Bibi Fatima (as) - Craft

Posted:

Here’s another craft idea on the wafat of Lady Fatima (as) sent in by a mum…

1- Children Painted a Poster boards brown and red. We cut them in half to look like a door. ( this was toddler height). We also cut the red into flames.

2- We glued the fire onto the door and shared the horrific tragedy that fell on Bibi Fatema and Baby Mohsin AS.

3- We also learned the different titles of Bibi Fatema and made a flower out of the petals. The petals on the front had the title and when you lift it the meaning of the title and how it applied to Bibi Fatema AS.

4- for the wall in our house we made a bigger door and a bigger flower. For the flowers stem we used it as a time line to depict all the important events in her life.

 

Eid Tree - Decoration Ideas!

Posted:

Following on from the Eid Tree idea shared last week, now we need to get thinking on how to decorate it!

We are trying to gather all the ideas (both decoration-wise and just general uses for the Eid tree) here on this Pinterest board – join us! If you come across anything that you think might be good, pls feel free to share too!

Lastly, why not get some mums and kids over to have a decoration making session? Home-made decorations are so charming and the children will love seeing their handiwork up there. It also makes it easier when done together, doesn’t it?!

If you’re in the London area, join us for ours! It will be at the Children’s Islamic Library in Stanmore next Wednesday at 2pm.

Happy decorating 🙂

Me'raj and the Tasbih of Bibi Fatema (as)

Posted:

It’s the night of Me’raj!

FZ and mum did an activity on the Tasbih of Bibi Fatema, which was told to the Prophet by Angel Jibrail during his ascension!

Here are the details below:

“In the centre is Bibi Fatema as with her Tasbih, then the rectangle around her represents the Kaaba with its 4 rukn, followed by an outer rectangle representing Bayt ul Ma’mur with its 4 rukn, followed by the ‘Arsh with its 4 rukn and the Dhikr of the Tasbih of Bibi Fatema as holding up the 4 corners…here FZ also added graphics to show how the Dhikr came about…

On the sides she made colourful wings to show that the Tasbih is so powerful that it can take us so close to Allah, even up to the ‘Arsh!

At the top is the last bit of the story where the Prophet saw, during Mi’raj, is riding on Buraq where Angel Jibraeel tells him how the Tasbih came about and the Dhikr to complete it.

She also added a 3d star to show that Bibi Fatema is Az Zahra, the Shining Star and the Lady of Light.

Bibi Zainab's Timeline

Posted:

Yesterday we marked the death anniversary of Lady Zainab, the granddaughter of the Holy Prophet. FZ and mum have been busy with an activity to help remember and learn from this amazing role model’s life.

“My 6 year old daughter created this art on canvas showing Bibi Zainab (as) on Siratul Mustaqeem guiding us, through the lessons we learn from her life, all the way to Jannah!

She is holding an alam, and on her superheroine cape are written her titles, ‘Sharikatul Husayn – Imam Husayn’s partner in his mission to save Islam’ and ‘Aalima Ghayr Mu’allima – One who knows without being taught’ (title given by Imam Zainul Abideen, as Bibi used to conduct Islamic classes for the women of Madina and Kufa and was revered for her knowledge and wisdom).

She also included Bibi’s famous, powerful and most profound words, summing up her life’s philosophy of placing Allah’s (swt) pleasure at the centre of all she did and thought: ‘I see nothing but beauty’ – ‘Ma ra’aitu illa jameela’ when asked by Ibne Ziyad at his court how she found the events of Karbala.

She drew and captioned pictures to create a simple timeline of her life, from her blessed birth to her death at 57 years.

Timeline:

Born on 5/5/5 – 5th Jamadil Awwal 5AH

At 7 years – Bibi Fatema (as), her mother, and Rasulullah (saw), her grandfather, pass away

At 12 years – she got married to Abdullah bin Jaffar e Tayyar and they had 6 kids including Awn and Muhammad

At 32 years, Imam Ali (as) became the khalifa and they moved to Kufa with him

At 35 years, the martyrdom of Imam Ali (as) takes place

Bibi then moved back to Madina to support Imam Hassan (as) in his imamat

At 45 years, Imam Hassan (as) is poisoned and passes away

At 55 years, she witnesses the tragedy of Karbala, Kufa, Shaam, back to Karbala on Arbaeen – Bibi established the institution of Majlis Al Husayn, Allah’s University! – and then return to Madina

At 57 years, she passed away – most say in Sham but there are also reports that she’s buried in Cairo, Egypt or Madina”
