I LOVE what one mum did to mark the Prophet’s birthday!
‘We made Prophet Muhammad themed party bags and dropped them off at his friends house with the message below.
“Abdulhafeedh and Fatimah are so excited to celebrate Prophet Muhammad (saw) birthday with you all…
We have packed a bag with items to help us learn about this great man.
Grapes: The prophet used to love eating grapes (see story also to share with kids also below!)
Dates: This was one of Prophet Muhammad (saw) favourite food!
Raisins: The prophet loved eating raisins especially for breakfast.
Scented playdough: Scented because the prophet loved nice smell. With the playdough make a model of something to do with Prophet Muhammad (saw) and send us a picture☺️
Erasable crayons: Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’an if you ask the prophet for forgiveness he will forgive you. Your mistakes will go away like the crayon. Always say sorry.
Sweet jelly: The Prophet (saw) said “He who gives sweets to his brother will be saved from the bitterness of death” or in kid terms – have a nice life 😉
Balloons: To celebrate this great man 🥰”’
Check out what school favours one family gave out for the Prophet’s birthday! Kindness Jars!
The creative mum got some spice jars from IKEA (size is 5h x 5.4w), and printed out some acts of kindness (downloadable here) and put them in the jar.
She printed out instructions and added them to the jar (downloadable here), and added some sweets and balloons.
And finally, she topped off the jar with a Lindt emoji chocolate!
