I love, love, love this idea of doing good and giving every day of the month of Ramadan:
Check out the details here! https://www.wu.com/chainofbetters/case-studies/30-days-of-better/
Now this is inspiration for all our teens – check out how one student created a feeling of unity and solidarity in his school simply by posting something nice about them on instagram!
Maybe they can come up with something along those lines this Ramadhan – can’t think of a better time to be loving and kind to others!
Jummah Mubarak all!
Watch these beautiful videos with your children to kickstart the goodness of the month of Ramadhan 🙂
Love, love, love!
Yet another story of Islamic values in action 🙂
A great example for our kids to keep in mind, following the greater example of our Prophet and his family of course!
“This story is indeed a great lesson for us all and highlights the best way of winning people’s hearts – good character. The prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) also won people over with his good character and many people went onto embrace Islam because of that.”
Just what I needed to watch on a Friday 🙂
Love others to love yourself – Jummah Mubarak!
This one’s made its rounds on facebook but am sharing here because it’s beautiful – so if you haven’t seen it yet, enjoy!
This awesome video which shows examples of the numerous acts of kindness that the Prophet did in his life!

He leads a well-equipped force comprised of thousands of soldiers, horses and elephants. As the army approaches Mecca, the elephants respond to divine order by halting and refusing to continue. Millions of small birds then release a hail of stones onto Abraha’s forces and the army is annihilated. A month later, Muhammad is born.

An interesting and beautiful video about drawing the Prophet. May bring up lots to discuss with your older children…I know it did with mine!
A short clip on the Prophet:
Our beloved Holy Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) was brought down as a mercy to mankind. “And we have not sent you but a mercy to the worlds”

Allah promises us that whatever we will give, He will give us more: ‘Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him and he will have a noble reward?’ (57:11)
This video is a wonderful way to explain that to our children: http://www.wimp.com/lookedcloser/

Fundraising idea 5: 30 Good Deed Challenge
With the emphasis on doing good, especially in this month, how about this fundraising idea?
My two took this on last year and Alhamd managed to raise more than £1000. They wrote about their good deeds on a blog:
Some of their deeds included writing thank you notes for the park volunteers, giving small gift packs to the elders of the community, donating to a good bank and bringing water to people.
Am sure you can think of many more good deeds to do!
