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!

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.
