Muharram Idea 6 - Importance of Water

Posted:

Idea No 6: Remind them about the Importance of Water during these 10 Days (sent in by a mum!)

One way to do that is to stick up a note in the kitchen as a reminder to think of Imam Husayn (as)!

Or for older children, you can stick up the Dua When Drinking Water (or even stick it on their water bottles):

S’ALAWAATULLAAHI A’LAL HUSAYNI WA AHLI BAYTIHEE WA AS’H’AABIHEE WA LA’-NATULLAHI A’LAA QATALATIHEE WA A’-DAA-IHEE

Blessing of Allah be on Husayn, his family and his friends; may Allah curse those who killed him and opposed him.

Why not make it into a craft activity? Check out:http://www.madressa.net/arts-and-crafts/islamic-months/muharram/718-dua-for-drinking-water

Muharram Idea 5 - New Year's Resolution

Idea No 5: Mark our New Year with Resolutions (sent in by a mum!)

We don’t celebrate our new year, but we can make it meaningful as a family. We (children AND parents!) created a flag with our goals for the year. It is something for them to think about every day. Perhaps a sticker can be given for each day the child and parent remember the Akhlaq they wish to make into a habit.

NB: Goals can be anything! As well as an Akhlaqi goal, why not have a goal for the body, the brain, the soul… increase or decrease this according to the age of the child.

Muharram Idea 4 - Banner of 'words'

Idea No 4: Make it VISUAL (sent in by a mum!)

As Muharram approaches us every year, I ponder over how to create an atmosphere in the house to give the children a sense of understanding and importance of the next two holy months.

This year, I created a banner with various vocabulary applicable to my children’s ages. I placed it opposite their bunk bed so that they are able to see it before going to bed. It is to be a source of discussion every night.
