Muharram Resolutions

Posted:

Every Muharram we take the opportunity to give ourselves resolutions for the year ahead. This year in the girls’ classes we asked them to pick 3 small things that they knew was good to do, and encouraged them to try and make it a habit by doing it over the next 40 days – from Ashura to Arbaeen.

May Allah accept our mourning for Aba Abdillah, and help us transform it into true knowledge and bettering ourselves, Inshallah.

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!

Muharram and Birthdays

Posted:

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!
