2 Soil Activities

And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "I will create a human being out of clay from an altered black mud. (15:28)

Surely, the case of Isa (Jesus), in the sight of Allah, is like the case of ‘Adam “He created him from dust, then He said to him, “Be”, and he came to be. (3:59)

From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time. (20:55)

Abû Mûsâ al-Ash`arî رضي الله عنه relates that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Allah created Adam from a handful taken from all over the Earth. Therefore, the descendants of Adam came forth corresponding to the Earth. Some are red, some are white, and some are black, and some are intermediate between those. Some are easygoing, some are difficult, some are bad, and some are good.”   (Abû Dâwûd)

Alhamdulillah, Eventually we were able to make a flap book about soil. Anyway science is one of our Big Sisters favorite subject. 

Subhanallah as homeschoolers we parents have a good opportunity of discussing the verses of Allah and the words of the final messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم when we are involved in this immense responsibility of educating our children. 

It is very fascinating to do such activities with kids only matter is the shortage of time.

 Filled a jar with soil and after 30min humus was formed
