I loved these ideas on how to continue the learning achieved in the majlis!
These books were given out at the end of two majalis – can you guess what the topics were? That’s right – Keeping Promises and Good Intentions 😉 A little something to help children retain what they have learnt and more importantly, act on it!
One mum gave these mugs out at the end of a majlis, with an insert that can be coloured in. A perfect way to help children think of the thirst of Imam Hussain (as) whenever they drink!
One thing parents may face is the question of how to mark their children’s birthdays during these two months of Muharram and Safar. This was the first year we have had to deal with this and while we celebrated before Muharram started, my daughter wanted to take in sweets on the day to school, as is the norm.
So with the kind help of the creator of the Random Acts of Kindness cards that i shared a few days ago, we decided to do this! We waited until the 10 days were over and then gave out a little chocolate as well as the cards, with a little message on top about the commemoration of Ashura, in order to raise awareness about Imam Hussain (as).
Inshallah may it lead to lots of acts of kindness in the name of Imam Hussain!
So proud of the girls in the mosque classes, Mashallah!
After discussing the part in Ayatul Birr (Ayah 177 of Sura Baqarah) where it talks about the quality of righteous people giving away money that they love, we invited them to bring in some of their OWN money on Ashura day for charity…
They were told that any amount – or even no amount if they didnt want to! – would be fine, even a 1p coin. And yet they brought change, they brought notes, and they brought in large numbers! Alhamd they manged to raise over £140! Just shows how much we can do when we come together, even at the tender ages of 7 to 11 years…
May Allah make them of the righteous ones, Inshallah 🙂
