1 Eid Cards

Subhanallah, The days are passing so quickly we are now in the blessed last 10 days of Ramadan. As the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said look for Lailathul Qadr during the odd numbered nights of last 10 days of this month. Fortunate is the person who gets the full bessings of the night of Lailathul Qadr by spending it in ibada of Allah. May Allah make us among them!.

Though the time passes swifty kids need their enjoyinment and entertainment, I hope that the time I spend with them will be counted as ibada in order to protect them from haram entertainment. 

Big Sister wanted to sent some Eid cards to her friends, this year we tried with different and simple design. Alhamdulillah it came out well. 

Little Princess's first Eid card to her penpal

 Little Soldier's Eid card. Poor little boy wanted to make even though he don't have a penpal, tying to find one soon. Insha Allah.

May Allah Accept our fasting and other ibadhas and make us among the pious!

2 Welcome O Ramadan

Alhamdulillah, Happy and thankful to my beloved creator for giving us another chance of Ramadan the blessed month to purify ourselves. The honored guest whom we are eager to welcome. 

I know that this Ramadan is going to be completely different for me with 4 little ones. I would like to exert myself in terms of my own ibadaah, but I have to attend the needs of my young ones who depend on me. By the mercy of Allah we can be rewarded for our intentions even if we are unable to carry out the actions. So, I couldn't put a Ramadan plan, have to workout on how the situation is. Insha Allah, I'll try my best to spend more time in Quran. 

By the grace of Allah, kids (Big Sister & Little Princess) are well prepared for Ramadan, we discussed a lot about the virtues of Ramadan, what should be done during Ramadan, which actions should be avoided and why Ramadan is given for us, also the special door of Raiyyan which is prepared for those who fast. And finally I told them, if we live the whole life like how we live in Ramadan we'll be happy when we meet Allah like the day we are happy when we see the moon of Eid. 

Alhadmullah they have decorated the house to welcome Ramadan, as the Jannah is decorated for those who fast. the top picture was done by Little Princess. Insha Allah trying to make her to fast this year.

My little man (Little Soldier) is familiar with the word "Ramadan" only in word but wants to munch every time :)

Little Princess's Ramadan chain, each strip is removed each day, by the end of the month chain will be completed and she knows that Ramadan has 29 or 30 days.

Our simple Ramadan gift pouch. Prepared just to encourage young ones.

Lovely little badges designed by hubby.

 Oh Allah, help us to spend this Ramadan in complete submission and worship to you, also help us to celebrate this Ramadan as our last, So we may be able to put all our efforts into pleasing you!
