Halloween Treats - Islamic Ideas!

Posted:

Halloween is around the corner – and while many of us probably will not participate in the day in terms of dressing up or decorating our houses (especially given we are in Muharram), it will be inevitable that our doorbells will be ringing with Trick or Treaters.

So how can we use this an opportunity to spread the beauty of Islam and still make those children happy?! Last year, somebody came up with a beautiful idea! Here is what she said: “My daughter and I sat together and chose hadith that were relevant to our neighbors and their rights in Islam. We talked about each hadith and explained it to my four year old princess. Then we did some cutting exercise and stapling exercise (something a four year old loves doing!!). Finally we sat outside and gave the treats to all the kids that came to our door step. With a smile and a Salaam.”

Another option is to go to the www.whoishussain.org website and print out the labels with quotes on non-Muslims on Imam Hussain and give them out with the treats – Inshallah through this simple act, awareness will spread! Tjannah.com did that! “This Halloween…We made packs of some candy and a water bottle, hoping to spread the name of I.Hussain (as). We used the Who is Hussain? water bottle sleeve and added a little message in each pack. Where possible we don’t participate in any Halloween festivities but felt this was a great opportunity to inform people about I.Hussain (as). Water bottle sleeve is easily downloadable from www.whoishussain.org.”

Received this from someone in America – another great idea for Halloween! “This year we decided to use Halloween as a platform to counter the misconception about Islam, put forward by the horrible acts of groups such as ISIS and others! We decided to look at the concept of “The acceptance of diversity, peace and tolerance in Islam”.

Hence with each bag of candy we added a little letter! The letter also had a Quranic verse proving that Islam beautifully acknowledges differences and celebrates diversity.

As for my children, I explained to them that as Muslims, we never let anyone come to our door and go empty handed! Despite us not celebrating Halloween, but if a child comes to ask for candy, as a Muslim we should give them some :)”

And how about this idea?

Interfaith Service

Just wanted to share a beautiful 5 minute clip of the recitation of the Holy Quran followed by a very moving speech at an Interfaith Service on Sunday in Connecticut attended by President Obama: http://www.youtube.com/embed/oHvYZeUV9EE

For those of you who still want to reach out to your friends, colleagues, teachers, police station, fire service, local hospital and doctor’s surgeries, libraries and many more from the other faith, we yesterday received our final batches of the Interfaith Christmas
Cards:

From the 1,300 we ordered – we now only have left the following, thanks to the amazing response we have had from everywhere:

(i) 90 – A6 cards
(ii) 16 packs – A7 mini cards (160 cards).

Postman Pat sending a post out today (3pm), tomorrow, and a final post going out on Thursday!

 

 

Fantastic response

600 cards arrived – 600 cards all GONE! (Don’t worry if you haven’t ordered yours yet – we have re-ordered some!)

Alhamdulillah, we have had a fantastic response to the Christmas Cards with a twist!

There are some phenomenal initiatives taking place: Stanmore Jafferys & Hyderi Centers are both doing lovely gift bags to all the neighbours around the area: A box of chocolates, a WIH card and a Buzz Christmas card to apologise for the inconvenience we put them through during the year, and thank them for their understanding.

Wouldn’t it be great to get all our centers around the country to reach out to our neighbours and wish them a lovely break? So if there is anyone who is part of a youth group, committee etc… look forward to your orders and will get them shipped out asap!

P.S. Will post more details later on the neighbour initiative as Stanmore Jafferys are looking for families to knock on the door to hand out the gift bags!
