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!

A beautiful story of another inspiring mother 🙂
“The relationship between parents and their children is one that cannot be compared to anything else in the world. In the Holy Quran, Allah (swt) prescribes the following: “And your Lord has decreed that you do not worship except Him, and to your parents, [show] good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age while with you, say not to them [so much as], ‘uff,‘ and do not repel them, and speak to them a noble word.” [17:23]. The Holy Quran exalts the status of parents, and hadiths do too; here are some great ones for everyone to take in, with an insight on how the child plays an important role in the relationship between them.”
