Buloogh and Panic!

Buloogh and Panic!

Just a last thought on Buloogh before I wrap up the topic and we go on to something else…

One interesting thing a mum said was that one thing she didn’t expect was the panic she felt abut a month before her daughter turned 9 Islamically. And she said she now knows that a lot of other mums faced it too…

Inshallah it is our hope and prayer that through the ideas, resources and thoughts shared in this series, an element of that panic will be decreased! And of course, knowing that it is normal to feel that way helps too 🙂

May our daughters embrace turning 9 and this new phase of their lives Inshallah! And may Allah give us the tawfeeq to be able to guide them throught it 🙂

Baligha Series – Idea 14: Make it a mother-daughter moment

Baligha Series – Idea 14: Make it a mother-daughter moment

The last idea for the series is the most sentimental 🙂

Make it a special transition by doing something different, just the two of you – going away for the weekend, going for a walk by the beach (on a full moon!), going for a spa day, going for a hike…anything that is out of the norm and that will also allow you the space to talk and share thoughts 🙂

Baligha Series – Idea 13: Meaningful Gifts

Baligha Series – Idea 13: Meaningful Gifts

Make the buloogh birthday extra special by adding meaningful gifts!

One family gifted their daughter 9 gifts, one for each year. She started opening one a day each day, leading up to her actual birthday – this made the excitement truly stretch out!

The gifts given from each member of the family, as well as general gifts around buloogh:

  1. A father-daughter necklace/keychain from the dad
  2. A mother-daughter journal from the mum
  3. A personalised cushion from the brother
  4. A shela hanger
  5. A pin cushion
  6. A QFatima Buloogh journal
  7. A prayer pack, with a musalla, dua book, mohr/tasbih, perfume, prayer book (to write down kazas, etc), travel toilet bottle and a travel musalla (Another idea here is to gift them a Risalah of their Mujtahid!)
  8. Her buloogh party counted as one gift 😉
  9. Her birthday ‘card’ counted as a gift as it was a book of meaningful messages by her family and friends 🙂 (https://www.buzzideazz.com/baligha-series-idea-11-gather-messages-from-loved-ones/)

Other ideas include:

The women that were invited to mark this special moment in the girl’s life were encouraged to give a special sort of gift – something of theirs that was meaningful and significant to them that they were passing on to her, such as a piece of jewellery from when they were younger, a poem that touched them, a book that they loved, a journal to write her thoughts in, a special photograph, etc.

Now that’s what I call a thoughtful gift 🙂
