One more teacher’s gifts before we move on to other gifts
This one says:
‘May Allah (swt) grant you His (M&Ms) Maghfira and Ma’rifa for all that you have done for us in this Holy month of Ramadhan!’
The chocolate names used as puns in a card is a classic – but I don’t think I’ve seen it being used in an Islamic context before! Totally loved the ingenuity
It just takes a little message to make a gift thoughtful! This idea was from Islam from the Start 🙂
This gift definitely made us smile!
The emoji pillow is fun in itself but extra meaning was added by stitching on a tag which says ‘Smiling is Charity at the back.
The word cloud card was personalised with each child’s name as well as words like Akhlaq, Thankful, Charity, Eid Mubarak, Smile and the like… And at the back were two ahadith on smiling!
Check out this card shared by Towards Jannah! The original card for friends consisted of a little game – to recite short suras, with a beady dice and a set of colour pencils
Then her daughter made some significant amendments to the short suras on the card for her dad!
It’s Eid and now time to add to our yearly Thoughtful Gift Idea series 🙂
Here’s one given to teachers in Ramadhan classes which is both useful and the wording is just apt and beautifully linked to the holy month! It says:
“Allah’s love and mercy has no measure.”
A powerful video showing the importance of time – great to show our kids or in the classroom when talking about Sura Asr.
Thankfulness is very much the ‘in’ thing right now, with studies showing how an ‘attitude of gratitude’ has so much benefits to our well being. This is something Islam has told us from the start, and we are encouraged to be thankful 5 times a day after every salaah!
This diary is a great gift to keep encouraging our children to reflect on what they are thankful to Allah for 🙂
I came across this FB post and think it’s a very special way to think about when we end our fast. Inshallah if we start young we can inculcate this thinking into our children!
But in Spanish, that’s not the word I was taught to use when it’s time to eat after fasting. My grandparents taught me to say, “Ahora entrego mi ayuno.” (“It is time to deliver my fast [to God].”) The image of a servant, of a believer of One God, praying “Here is my fast, oh Lord. Please accept it from me!” It reminds me of the unseen, of begging God to accept our deeds, and praying to The One God as if we see Him.
So, today, how will you deliver your fast to the Almighty Lord of the Worlds?”
