0 Visit to National Postal Museum

Last Thursday the girls wanted to spend some time out with hubby. Hubby was wondering where to take them, finally they went and discussed all what they saw and felt after I saw the pictures as they thought that hubby didn’t mention to me where he was taking them.
What I felt at this moment was the father/daughter relationship which is an interesting and utmost important subject that each father should know if he wants his sweet daughters not to go behind a stranger when he says words like ‘I love you” and “You look so beautiful’ which is going to boost their emotions if they haven’t heard these words from a man before it.
An open communication and spending time together, especially a father with his daughters (as he is the first man they are dealing with) is definitely important during these days of corruption. All of us are familiar with the stories of how our beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and his dearest daughter Fathimah رضى لله عنها were close to each other, amazing! What a wonderful example for dear fathers.
We discussed that exchanging letters is an action that was taking place from the times of Prophets also the Quran speaks about it too. Ex: The letter of Sulayman عليه السلام and Bilkees, also the stories of Sahabas رضى لله عنهم which mentions the letters exchanged between the sahabas and emperors etc…

0 Moon Sighting

As we all know moon sighting is an important aspect in Islam to determine the months and most of other Islamic obligations and rulings.

Last Sunday was the day for sighting the moon for the month of Jumadhal Ula. Usually hubby goes for sighting whenever it is possible for him, this time kids were insisting to take them as it was a Sunday.

It changed into a family moon sighting day, They wanted to join Abi for the task.

For me it was a first-hand experience and it took few minutes for me to identify the moon because it is just a blade of curve. The best part is Big Sister could see it long before me. The other kids were too small for it and they enjoyed playing and having fun watching kites fly high in the calm breeze.

Fascinating thing for me is, it is a part of homeschooling as it is considered to be developing new skills and observations.

The days and months are passing and we are getting closer and closer for death,

May the day that we meet our Lord be the best of our days!
