Muharram and Birthdays
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!
