Iqra Day

Iqra Day

As I’m sure you all know, World Book Day was just a few days ago on the 5th of March. Our Madressa here also honoured this day, by having an Iqra Day!

The children were told to dress up as their favourite character from an Islamic book they had read – and their costumes were pretty amazing 🙂

What a great way to encouraging children to read the wonderful array of Islamic books that are out there!

Here are just a few of the characters and books…

Bedtime Series – Idea 3: Time for stories!

Bedtime Series – Idea 3: Time for stories!

As I’m sure you know, reading is SO SO important, and reading WITH our children is also vital, not only for developing a love for language and literacy and imagination, but also for the bonding between parent and child

Alhamdulillah, there are SO many good Islamic books out there (novels too for the older ones) that can be read at bedtime.

I have previously reviewed some books before, and will hopefully continue to do that between series over time – there are also apps with stories, as well as an e-book here and there, so you can get started pretty much straight away!

Here is the link for the previously reviewed books:https://buzzideazz.com/category/books/page/2/

Another excellent book with lots of short stories (ideal for a quick bedtime story+lesson) is ‘Excellent Stories’ by QFatima – it is available to buy as a hard copy, but also downloadable for free as a PDF here:http://www.qfatima.com/index.php/q-kids-home?layout=edit&id=431

Happy reading at bedtime 

Baligha Series – Idea 1: Books, books, books!

Baligha Series – Idea 1: Books, books, books!

Bismillah…let the buloogh series begin!

Just a quick note before our first idea – buloogh for girls and hijaab are inevitable tied together. However, for the purpose of this series, we will focus more on the other aspects of buloogh and cover hijaab in a later series, to allow each topic to get full coverage Inshallah…

Idea 1: Books, books, books!

Although still few and far between, there are some books out there on this oh-so-important topic.

Princess Inaya Becomes Baligha (by Binte Abbas and Ibn Ali covers the main aspects of reaching the age of buloogh in story form, making it a light hearted entry point to the topic.

A Muslim Girl’s Guide to Life’s Big Changes (by Rayhana Khan) is a much more factual book, covering things to consider such as life in school, the clothes that we wear, behaviour and what’s happening to our bodies when we grow.

Jashn-e-Buloogh (Celebrating Baligh Ceremony) is informative as above, but in much smaller snippets, and accompanied by lots of bright cartoon illustrations, as opposed to book style.

Celebration of Responsibility – Baligha Booklet: Covers the main topics of wudhoo, cleanliness, taqlid, etc. For more info on how to get a copy, contact Aarifa Suleman at aarifa5@gmail.com

Some other titles are:

How to get Hijab Ready by Aisha Elwan and Megan Wyatt

The Hijab Boutique by Michelle Khan
