Thoughtful Gift Ideas 54: TEA mug for TEAchers!

Another TEA-cher gift idea! What’s really cool about this is the hijabi 😉 We have plenty of gifts for teachers as mainstream, but something that’s clearly Muslim is a treat!

Muharram Idea 20 – Being careful when sharing the message of Kerbala with children

Muharram Idea 20 – Being careful when sharing the message of Kerbala with children

As we prepare to enter the months of Muharram and Safar, here are some INVALUABLE points for parents and teachers to keep in mind. Please read and share!

Take the first point for example – SO crucial:

“Images of Violence:

It never ceases to amaze me the extent of graphic details Islamic school curriculums, teachers, and speakers provide children when discussing Karbala. Yes, it was a battle and yes it was a tragedy beyond words. However, such violent and graphic details are socially and developmentally inappropriate. Many children struggle to understand topics such as death, loss, and grief. When Islamic school teachers decide to focus on the explicit details of how Ali al-Asghar or Imam Abbas (as) were killed, it can be difficult for children to overcome. You can definitely get the message across that Yazeed and Bani Ummayah were the lowest of the low and enemies of God without describing to a child in graphic details the murder of another child.”

Thoughtful Gift Ideas 20: Candles for Teachers

Thoughtful Gift Ideas 20: Candles for Teachers

Last but not least for our thoughtful gift idea series this year is with the same theme of making gifts more meaningful with a message…

These are candles for teachers of Ramadhan classes who dedicated the month to teaching young ones and serving them iftaar first, etc – they read: “A good teacher is like a candle, it consumes itself to light the way for others.”
