I really loved this Reflection Journal on Nahjul Balagh! My kids who are 10 and 12 years old went through it with me and we had great discussions on the back of it. It’s a great way to make Imam Ali’s wisdom accessible for the younger ones.

A little one’s letter to the Imam, using the Letters to my Imam Journal by Buzz Ideazz 🙂
he next batch of Buloogh Ideas is all about acknowledging that your daughter is now entering a new phase of life…
One mum had a lovely idea of collecting messages for her daughter from all the people who knew her – family, friends – school and otherwise, teachers, etc.
The result was one lovely journal full of memories and advice for the years ahead, which I’m sure she will cherish forever!
As well as reading books, journals can allow the girls to learn by writing and thinking about this time in their life.
*This awesome journal allows girls to document this special new journey in their life!
Using the word ‘Baligha’ as an acrostic poem, the following topics are covered in a clear and beautiful manner:
B: Beautiful (cleanliness and inner beauty)
A: Awareness (of fiqh, salaat, physical changes)
L: Little Lady Quiz
I: Intention (wajib)
G: Genes (relationships and geneology)
H: Hijab (declaration of identity)
A: Aspiration (Micro and macro goals)
Each section has a place for your child’s own notes and thoughts, as well as quizzes, personal information, and even a space to design their own hijabs!
There is a PDF available but I would highly recommend ordering a physical copy – nothing beats that!
So in the Iraq series, we talk about encouraging our children to keep a journal to write their thoughts/duas in, make a scrapbook with all their mementos in, and we also mentioned the importance of having child-friendly information about the trip.
Alhamdulillah, all these three concepts have been incorporated into our latest product – the Umrah Journal!
It is with the printers and will be with us early next week so please do get in touch if you would like us to send out a copy straight away to Inshallah get to you in time. Alternatively, we can arrange a mutually convenient time to pass them on!

Idea 5: Keep a Diary/Journal
Journalling is a little more than a dairy, so which one you choose to encourage your children to keep depends on their age and capability. A diary is simply an account of the day’s events, whereas a journal encourages reflection on those events.
Either way, keeping one is an amazing way to note down important events, memories, thoughts, goals and more…and they will hopefully be treasures in the future when you look back on the trip, and even after years, Inshallah!
P.S. Buzz is working on something special along this theme…can’t wait until it’s ready, Inshallah!
