Alams

Posted:

Alams have featured a lot these last few months in different majalises, workshops and classes!

Some were done in the classes as an art and craft project, others were made at home as giveaways for those who attended the majlis, for the children to keep at home in their room as a reminder of the noble personality that we commemorate.

Thanks to those that sent in these pics!

Prophet Muhammad

Posted:

Celebrate the Prophet’s birthday with your children using ideas from Islam from the Start’s Prophet Muhammad collection!

“The book is divided into four sections with crafts and activity ideas to help build a basic knowledge base about the Holy Prophet and allow children to understand and practice what it means to live in his footsteps.

  1. The life of the Prophet
  2. The way of the Prophet
  3. Follow the Prophet
  4. Celebrate the Prophet”

Countdown to the Prophet's Birthday

Posted:

Continuing on with our catch up about the Holy Prophet’s birthday…

As mentioned earlier, we have previously done celebrating his birthday with a week of emulating his life. (See:http://www.buzzideazz.com/glimpse-of-week-ahead/ and http://www.buzzideazz.com/week-of-emulating-the-prophet/).

One mum did something similar, but in such an amazingly creative way! Check it out…

“Count down to the Holy Prophets’s khushali:

To make my kids learn and look forward to the Prophet’s birthday we made an advent calendar with 7 days of different activities.

We put together 7 tissue rolls and covered them with a coloured tissue. Each day had a learning activity about how the Prophet lived and how we could incorporate them in our daily lives. So in each tissue roll I put in a note of what they had to think about do.

Here’s what we did on each day:

1. We talked about the story of the Prophet and the sour grapes. How the poor man had brought the Prophet grapes and the Prophet ate them all himself and when the companions asked why he didn’t share he said they weren’t sweet and he didn’t want the poor man to feel sad if at all the companions made a face.

We learnt that we should share only what we like 🙂. I put in one tube of smarties for all to share!

2. We listed a few things that the prophet ate, eg. Dates, grapes, figs, honey,pomegranate, olive oil, etc. I put in some khajoor pak as a treat (because I didn’t have enough khajoor!)

3. Discussed how the prophet ate. I gave them a napkin each and asked them to write down how he ate so they can keep it with them at the table.

4. Talked about how the prophet slept.

I got the kids small emoji pillows and wrapped them up and kept them in their beds. On a piece of cloth I wrote down simple things that they can do before/when sleeping to remind them of the prophet. They then stitched the cloth on to the back of the pillow and keep it with them in bed! They made small tasbeehs at madressa which fit on perfectly with the pillow so it all stays together.

5. After getting all these little pressies and being excited, it was only fair to remember the sick and less fortunate. So today’s task was to do something to make someone else happy!

6. Cleanliness. The prophet was always smart and clean..

For this, I got the kids some small things to remember what the prophet carried with him to be clean at all times. I got a small towel, perfume, hairbrush with mirror and a toothbrush (in place of miswak) I didn’t put in the toothpick and scissors for safety reasons.

7. On the last day I cut up some stars and asked the kids to write down what they had learnt over the past week and then put the stars up on our tree (Shajaratul Tayyibah) :).  We also hung up the ornaments from Buzz Ideazz for the Prophet and Imam Jaffer Sadiq (as)’s birthday after decorating them!”

Ramadan and Eid Party!

Looking for ideas for Ramadan and Eid parties? You’re at the right place!

Here is a link to some great ideas for a Welcome Ramadan Party for kids: http://myhalalkitchen.com/welcome-ramadan-party-kids/

And here is an example of an Eid party for kids:

One mum held an Eid party for her sons and friends! They sang ‘Eid Mubarak To You’ while cutting the cake, and had the usual fun stuff of a bouncy castle and toys to make it extra special for the children.

Check out the Eid cake!

And I love these unique Eid cookie jars with moon cutter as a party favour!

And here are some Eid party games played at a Babble&Chat (Islamic Mother and Toddler session):
– Pass the parcel with questions about the Holy Qur’an
– Pin the crescent on the masjid
– ‘Shaban, shaban, ramadhan’ (our version of ‘duck duck goose’)
– Treasure hunt

YOUR Ramadan Calendars - 2015

Posted:

Here are the ones you sent in!

I love the idea of using little bags and decorating them:

calendar1

Here, each window has space for the children to write the Asma they learn that day:

calendar2

This one has a good deed box as well for the children to pick a deed and do it every day:

gooddeedbox

This is a cute little basket with card envelopes to be opened each day:

calendar4

This calendar has an Asma and an act of kindness to do daily:

calendar5

The beautiful drawers for each day have a worksheet on the Quran and a sadqa coin for each child:

calendar6

Another example of pretty little bags hung up:

calendar7And these drawers have even highlighted the important days with a little message:

calendar8

Last but definitely not least, how about this one which was actually set up in the children’s section of a mosque! This is what they said: “After a short speech, a child is picked to choose something. It is either read dua, salaat or sometimes says each child gets a treat!”

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.
