It’s already that time of year, would you believe?!
“On one such occasion last year I found myself telling him Eid was only 100 days away…and with that came an idea so exciting that I set to work straight away. We would have a tree – it would be a learning tree, a growing tree and with each leaf that opened we would count one less day till Eid but one more inch closer to Allah. I proposed to my then-four-year-old that we would have a “99 Names of Allah Tree.”
And here dear reader, I invite you to join us! This year on the 29th of March, it will be approximately 99 days till eid.”

Love this. Do we value the names we/our children are given as much?
I was recently told that if we have children named with such powerful names as Husayn and Zainab, we have to be sure that we don’t tell at them with anger, for these names are not meant to be used like that. They should invoke a softness and reverence of the heart…
