Looking for a role model for your teens? How about showing them this article on Lady Khadija? 🙂
With the wafat of Lady Khadija coming up, here are some idea sent in that perhaps you could use:
- “We are having purple day two days before wafat/shahadat to get to know Sayyida Khadija. Why purple? Because purple is the colour of royalty. Girls are going to be given a letter from her name to write a sentence about what they know of her, and eventually form an acrostic poem for display!”
- “We cut out and put two big crowns on a wall. We then gave cut out gem shaped cards to the girls and asked them to write out an act of Khadija-ness on them, then stick it on the crown. Every princess needs a crown AND a wand (and Lady Khadija is Ameera-tul-Quraish), so as favours we gave them a rainbow sherbet stick with a star on top saying “Illuminating Khadija-ness”. The girls loved it!”
- Here is a great way to emulate how Bibi Khadija helped with all that she had.
