0 Kids Halaqah 1439 (2018)

Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah we are getting closer to the blessed month of Ramadan. May Allah help us reach this blessed month in a healthy way so that we are able to do more good deeds Insha Allah.

This is all about our Kids Halaqah that was organized by Big Sister and Little Princess Alhamdulillah.
It was so fascinating to see little ones eagerly participating and sharing their knowledge in the quiz session (senior & junior), with basic Islamic questions, also discussing about the questions that they failed to answer and getting to know them. Masha Allah

One of the things that captured my heart and will always remember is that the reply which was given to the question on “Who was the first Muezzin?” My little girl replied “Abdullah”, though the reply was wrong she was talking about her brother (Little Soldier) who was very passionate in calling out the Adhan and it was one of his ambition. Aah, I really missed him at that moment and once again reminded myself that HE IS with the blessed! And all these efforts are to enter the eternal abode promised for the Muttaqeen Insha Allah!

Longing to be reunited with you in Jannah my little hero…!

Making the Deen matters interested to little ones in an encouraging and fascinating way is a must in today’s world as we are surrounded by Fitnas being introduced to them glamorously.  (May Allah protect our progeny from all sorts of Fitna).

This little article was prepared by Big Sister and Little Princess, introducing a basic understanding on the Qur’an and some tips on having a Productive Ramadan.

 (Sample pages)

Then comes the lovely flashcard from Abi. Here come our little gifts for the winners and all participants.

Barakallahu Feekum to the winners! (Muhammad Shakeel - Senior Section, Ruqayyah Shakeel - Junior Section)

Finally, the humble gift to our honorable chief guest… Alhamdulillah

May Allah accept our deeds and guide us on the straight path!

0 Little Muslimah (Video)

Alhamdulillah, Once again we’re here today by the grace of Allah.

Here is our video of a book done by our Little sister. She wanted to make it as she saw the books which her sisters wrote and finally this was done.

The little girl is sometimes lazy to do her handwriting, and she wants the job to be completed as fast as she could. Lol!

Whatever it may be and how it looks like doesn’t matter for me. What matters me is the time we spent together, the fun times we had while we record, the laugh & giggles when we play the recordings etc. These are the fond memories that lasts forever & instill the love of learning Insha Allah.

The photographer for this project is Little princess. And the video editor is Big sister and the sweet voice is from our Little sister. 

Yes… we remember you “Little soldier” in all our projects and activities we do, but once again we’re convinced you’re resting peacefully in an everlasting abode where we will be coming soon Insha Allah…

Which is the only aim of these efforts. Aameen!

0 New Grade - Muharram 1439

Alhamdulillah, we’ve reached the Hijri year 1439 by the mercy of Allah, while many of our beloved ones’ have reached our loving Creator. Subhanallah, we have been given another opportunity to increase our good deeds in order to make the day we reach him the best Insha Allah.

Aaaah, as usual we move onto new grades every Muharram. This day is one of the joyous day in my life to see my children with their new books reaching a higher grade.

Nothing makes me happier than listening to my beloved kids reciting the beautiful verses of Quran and enjoying the reading time, listening the stories of the Sahabah which they read to me. 

I know all the parents enjoy them, but what makes it special to me is that teaching each one of them was different experience and the joyful moments we spent together for learning are awesome, Subhanallah.

Letter given to my hero on the first day of last year Muharram and some of his drawings.
The smart voice of my Little Soldier reading and stumbling with hard words in our circles still rings in my ears and sweet memories are something that cannot be forgotten and brings joyous tears, Alhamdulillah. We really miss you!

Alhamdulillah, by the will of Allah I had to pass a great test of missing my hero in our first day celebration this year, the last year’s memory of all 4 gems whom Allah blessed me with, standing in rows with their new red dress happy and excited with their innocent faces is still fresh in my mind, Subhanallaaaaah. Qaddarallah

Once again I talked to my inner self that the sole purpose of this beautiful journey is to meet our Creator in a state when he is pleased with us, and yes one member in our team met his Creator in his tender sinless age Alhamdulillah.

Our Little Sister is turning 5 and starting her English alphabets, and has completed her Arabic alphabets (Qaa’idah), Alhamdulillah.

We pray to Him for guidance and help throughout our journey for the success of both worlds!

0 Coming Of Age - A Muslim Girls Guide (Book Review)

Alhamdulillah, once back here with a wonderful book which was gifted to our beloved daughters by hubby.

It was something that I was longing on having when I came across many books for young girls in non-Islamic perspective and was thrilled when I came across this lovely book which guides a young girl with an Islamic perspective on reaching her puberty.

Masha Allah, worth gifting for girls who are about to reach their puberty and beyond. May Allah bless the author, sister Hedaya Hartford who converted to Islam in 1981, and studied extensively for over 30 years with scholars in Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, and known for her Shari’a expertise on women’s issues regarding the fiqh on menstruation, lochia, marriage, divorce, and modern social issues.

The points are well put and organized in an awesome way with real life stories that every girl will surely love it and as well get to know several other important points that most of the times when parents feel shy or guilty to discuss which is not the real case should be.

The explanations are given clear and simple that can be understood by everyone. Also it makes them understand how unique and well-designed is the female body and the fascinating system that happens on every cycle, Subhanallah.

I’m pleased that my 12-year-old daughter is finding it very interesting and useful.

May Allah accept every minute efforts of us taken on guiding our off sprigs in the straight path!

2 The Fruit of the Heart

Alhamdulillah, we are almost at the middle of this blessed month. Subhanallah, this year was somewhat different for me by the will of Allah as I’m missing my hero Little soldier, temporarily and passing every moment of my life with the hope of reuniting with him in an everlasting life as a family together again Insha Allah.

Alhamdulillah, every situation for a mu’min is khair. The sweet memories of the last year’s Ramazan are making me feel Ahhh… unexplainable. Here is something that only I and my beloved son did together during the last Ramazan while others were asleep. (link)

My dear Abdullah, the 6 years of sweet memories you left back means a lot to me. My hero, I’m pleased that you’re happier and safer now, enjoying the bounties of Allah, than those of this world. Alhamdulillah.

My beloved son's writings are the most valuable to me. Today I’m sharing something that the fruit of my heart wrote to me few weeks before his departure.

May Allah accept us and reunite us together again as he never fails in his promises!
