Rajab Idea 8: Rajab Resources

There are a growing number of resources out there to help mark this special month, here they are below:

  • Kisa Kids have been releasing booklets for the last few years which are FULL of activities to mark the occasions of the months. They are available to download for free here. They also have banners, amal checklists, etc.
  • Zair Zabr Play has a few free printables for Rajab, including a booklet on Me’raj.
  • Here is one by Lunar Learners on Me’raj (Although there is much debate about Me’raj being on the 27th of Rajab, with the consensus being it’s not – that date is important for Mab’ath), you can use these on the other dates that have given for Me’raj)
  • Some worksheets by UmAimen
  • This Dua for Rajab for children (source unknown)
  • This awesome Rajab Calendar was created to help children stay on top of all the important dates and recommended a’maal of the month – created by TanveerShares

The Prophetic Path to Parenting Part 1- Age 0 to 7 (The Master)

The Prophetic Path to Parenting Part 1- Age 0 to 7 (The Master)

Lots of research has gone into this well-written article!

Here’s a snippet:

“As per the title, the child is “The Master” for the first 7 years and this means that formal or strict standards should not be rigorously implemented, particularly in terms of Islamic rituals. How many of us have had the Quran Hifz inculcated into us from the age of 4/5 and onwards or fasting the long hours or knowing the 4 rakaat prayers by say, age 7? When in Surah Baqara (2:256) Almighty Allah Azawajal, tells us that “There is no compulsion in religion”, why do we compel our children to follow rituals so stringently? I am by no means saying that they should not learn the Quran, attempt fasting or know how to pray Salaat. However, it should be proportionate to their age and development. We should explain and inform children, that when they think of Allah – that Allah’s name becomes synonymous with LOVE and MERCY and not FEAR and SHAME. When I was growing up,I learnt a lot when I was young due to fear and peer pressure – not the best way to teach! It was drilled into me by well meaning parents and Islamic classes. Is it time to ease up a little?”
