by | Aimmah, Rajab

Here are some ideas in which we can mark his important day with children:

  • Create a Mystery Box:

Possible ideas of items:

  1. Black cloth – we wear black to mourn during sad occasions
  2. The # 7 – explain that he’s the 7th Imam
  3. An Angry Face – Explain how Imam Kazim (as) was the opposite of anger, but was known to be the one who swallowed his anger and was patient/calm.
  4. A map with Iraq circled – explain how he’s buried in Iraq.
  5. Picture of the harem of Imam Kazim (as) – explain how we go to Kadhmayn to do his ziyarat where he’s buried.
  6. Handcuffs/box, bicycle chain or any chain or mini cage – explain how he was put in a prison for most of his life even though he was such a good Muslim and our Imam, but the ones who made bad choices caused him to suffer.
  7. A bridge (from legos etc) – Explain how the Imam (as) was left by the bridge.
  8. Toy bread – Explain how he was given very little food while in prison.
  9. Janemaz or Du’a book: Explain how despite all the difficulties he endured, he never gave up his faith in Allah and in fact thanked Him, and continued to worship Him even in the prison.
