I loved these ideas on how to continue the learning achieved in the majlis! These books were given out at the end of two majalis – can you guess what the topics were?
That’s right – Keeping Promises and Good Intentions 😉
A little something to help children retain what they have learnt and more importantly, act on it!
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!
Another beautiful idea of something to give our children to help them remember Imam Husayn (as)…
This handkerchief was given out in a children’s majlis.
One thing parents may face is the question of how to mark their children’s birthdays during these two months of Muharram and Safar. This was the first year we have had to deal with this and while we celebrated before Muharram started, my daughter wanted to take in sweets on the day to school, as is the norm.
So with the kind help of the creator of the Random Acts of Kindness cards that i shared a few days ago, we decided to do this! We waited until the 10 days were over and then gave out a little chocolate as well as the cards, with a little message on top about the commemoration of Ashura, in order to raise awareness about Imam Hussain (as).
Inshallah may it lead to lots of acts of kindness in the name of Imam Hussain!
A good way of narrating stories is using felt images. In this video,you are shown how to make your own Felt Story Bag to create many different stories on the Tragedy of Karbala.

Check out this wonderful idea! The children were given this on Hazrat Abbas’ night in class by a parent of one of the girls.
It contained gold coins as ‘tabarruk’ for them but the real treat was the card that went with it! With a quote by Imam Hussein on one side about giving without expecting any return, the other side encourages the receiver to do a random act of kindness and pass it on!
