DIY Puzzles with Islamic Themes

Posted:
I LOVE this idea that a mum sent! Check it out:

“Salaam, wanted to share a simple activity you can do with any image. Since it was the Prophet’s birthday, we printed images relating to the prophet (his name and masjid).

Then you take Popsicle sticks (as many as takes to cover photo) and glue with mod poj glue, then put image on top and add another layer of mod poj glue.

Be generous as it dries clear like you see in picture. Then take a box cutter and cut picture between Popsicle sticks and voila you have a DIY puzzle for kids!

You can do any image like Kaaba for Eid ul Adha or Imam Hussein’s shrine on his birthday, etc. I’m planning on taking these to mosque also to keep the kids busy.”

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!

Islamic Story Boxes

Posted:

You may have heard of Story Boxes – where boxes are converted into story telling opportunities with the right props and decor.

Here are some examples of Islamic Story Boxes sent in by a mum!

One to note for today in particular is the one on Imam Ali (as) – Khushali Mubarak to all of you, btw! There’s also one on Hadith-ul-Kisa, the narration of Thaqalayn at the Prophet’s death and the House of Grief of Bibi Fatima (as) after the Prophet died.

Wafat of Bibi Fatima (as) - Craft

Posted:

Here’s another craft idea on the wafat of Lady Fatima (as) sent in by a mum…

1- Children Painted a Poster boards brown and red. We cut them in half to look like a door. ( this was toddler height). We also cut the red into flames.

2- We glued the fire onto the door and shared the horrific tragedy that fell on Bibi Fatema and Baby Mohsin AS.

3- We also learned the different titles of Bibi Fatema and made a flower out of the petals. The petals on the front had the title and when you lift it the meaning of the title and how it applied to Bibi Fatema AS.

4- for the wall in our house we made a bigger door and a bigger flower. For the flowers stem we used it as a time line to depict all the important events in her life.

Eid Tree - Decoration Ideas!

Posted:

Following on from the Eid Tree idea shared last week, now we need to get thinking on how to decorate it!

We are trying to gather all the ideas (both decoration-wise and just general uses for the Eid tree) here on this Pinterest board – join us! If you come across anything that you think might be good, pls feel free to share too!

Lastly, why not get some mums and kids over to have a decoration making session? Home-made decorations are so charming and the children will love seeing their handiwork up there. It also makes it easier when done together, doesn’t it?!

If you’re in the London area, join us for ours! It will be at the Children’s Islamic Library in Stanmore next Wednesday at 2pm.

Happy decorating 🙂

Bibi Zainab's Timeline

Posted:

Yesterday we marked the death anniversary of Lady Zainab, the granddaughter of the Holy Prophet. FZ and mum have been busy with an activity to help remember and learn from this amazing role model’s life.

“My 6 year old daughter created this art on canvas showing Bibi Zainab (as) on Siratul Mustaqeem guiding us, through the lessons we learn from her life, all the way to Jannah!

She is holding an alam, and on her superheroine cape are written her titles, ‘Sharikatul Husayn – Imam Husayn’s partner in his mission to save Islam’ and ‘Aalima Ghayr Mu’allima – One who knows without being taught’ (title given by Imam Zainul Abideen, as Bibi used to conduct Islamic classes for the women of Madina and Kufa and was revered for her knowledge and wisdom).

She also included Bibi’s famous, powerful and most profound words, summing up her life’s philosophy of placing Allah’s (swt) pleasure at the centre of all she did and thought: ‘I see nothing but beauty’ – ‘Ma ra’aitu illa jameela’ when asked by Ibne Ziyad at his court how she found the events of Karbala.

She drew and captioned pictures to create a simple timeline of her life, from her blessed birth to her death at 57 years.

Timeline:

Born on 5/5/5 – 5th Jamadil Awwal 5AH

At 7 years – Bibi Fatema (as), her mother, and Rasulullah (saw), her grandfather, pass away

At 12 years – she got married to Abdullah bin Jaffar e Tayyar and they had 6 kids including Awn and Muhammad

At 32 years, Imam Ali (as) became the khalifa and they moved to Kufa with him

At 35 years, the martyrdom of Imam Ali (as) takes place

Bibi then moved back to Madina to support Imam Hassan (as) in his imamat

At 45 years, Imam Hassan (as) is poisoned and passes away

At 55 years, she witnesses the tragedy of Karbala, Kufa, Shaam, back to Karbala on Arbaeen – Bibi established the institution of Majlis Al Husayn, Allah’s University! – and then return to Madina

At 57 years, she passed away – most say in Sham but there are also reports that she’s buried in Cairo, Egypt or Madina”
