0 It's Me

My little girl wanted to do something interesting. Hey, we made her lie down on a sheet of paper and made my six-year-old draw the outline of her body.

Oh yep, both of them were surprised to see her figure on paper.

We then traced her feet and little hands. You can see she has decorated her hands with pink dots. The heart indicates that she loves her own self as loving one’s self is the key to love others.

0 Horse Lapbook

Today’s post is all about our Little Soldier’s craziness towards horses mostly after having watched many documentaries like the “Victorian Farm” and “Warrior the War Horse” etc.

Kids were insisting me to help them to make a project on horses. The wonderful videos about horses were really astonishing and it was so helpful for them to gain some sort of understanding about horses.

Oh, yep, we took them to a horse ride at the local park and they were over the moon, they caressed and fed the horses there.

The curiosity made them search for more information on horses and here are some books we used.
A very good tool to make a child read or write is to work on a project he loves. Little Soldier and Little Princess were so enthusiastic and wrote the stuff in the lap book with the help of Big Sister.

Hey, we used leather to make the cover of the book and inner decorations were done as a group.

You can see the drawing of our Little Soldier, “horse man” LOL

Wait! Let’s have a look at Ya’sub and Lazaz, (the horses)!! This is what I stitched for them and they really love it and have fun feeding, grooming, milking, and dressing it up.

0 Arabic Alphabet Craft (2)

Oh, didn’t get to post quite for long a time. Routines and styles of homeschoolers vary depending on age and need of our children. Anyway, learning happens at all stages of life in different styles and modes.

Yes, today I’m here with the lovely Arabic alphabet crafts of our cute girl, which she completed months ago and I couldn’t post it, yep.

Alhamdulillah, I’m so glad that Allah تعالى blessed me with the opportunity of teaching his words for all my 4 kids. “DEEP SIGH”. I’m hoping the acceptance and reward from the Almighty and pray that my progeny be among the bearers of the Qur’an and that let our life and death be in accordance to the honorable words of my Beloved Lord.

Indeed, teaching the book of Allah تعالى for children is a priceless investment for parents even after their death. Creating love and passion in the heart of a child for learning is a great tool for success in getting him into it without tantrums.

So, this is what we did for our Little Sister for her to remember each alphabet. Most of the times she wanted them to do by herself, so I couldn’t be perfect and neat on top level ;). We used whatever materials were available at the moment and the focus was making her familiar with the letters.

Hey, finally we ended the alphabets with the handprint of our cute girl.

May Allah تعالى bless and use these little hands for the service of his Deen!

0 Silent Fighter (Irfan Hafiz) Book Review

Subhanallah, Indeed, we are really blessed with many blessings which we take it for granted. Being blessed physically is one of the greatest blessing that most of us don’t understand, and we only realize it once any defect occurs. (May Allah grant us all good health!)

It is amazing to see people who inspire the world despite great tests from Allah, which they take is as a blessing. Masha Allah. Only a person of real faith can overcome the tests with a positive mind and inspire the world with the awesome gifts that Allah has provided them.

One of the inspirational human we came across in this regard was brother Irfan Hafiz, a DMD patient, which is one of the rarest disease in the world. Subhanallah, a shining example for each of us. This brother is mentioning each and every step of his life in his book "Silent Thoughts” as a blessing from Allah. Subhanallah!

The stories were really heart melting and moving to tears. Lying in the bed for 16 years unable to move the limbs and creating such a wonderful work is to be highly appreciated. Hope that it is an excellent example for many families. Some of this brother’s golden qualities are worth to be inculcated in our own lives. Being positive and an optimist, not giving up, quest for knowledge, being content and grateful to the blessings of Allah, most of all accepting the decree of Allah whole heatedly and happily etc... WONDERFUL.

What I felt after reading his books was all about the emotional support he gets from his family. I’m a person who strongly believe that emotions play a critical role in one’s life. His mom ‘s story was so wonderful and impressive for me and an excellent model for every mum on how to handle the most unbearable grief and problems in an awesome way, and his father’s stories too were amazing Masha Allah.

Each and every one of the family have taken this sickness as a blessing and not as a curse…. Subhanallah, NOT AN EASY JOB. May Allah accept you all!

The wear out of the book shows how interesting and sounds real that our kids loved reading it again and again.
