The Power of Truth

truth

This was a part of the 5 Day, 5 Photos challenge story, it was day 3 for me and was passed by sister fatima at www.islahii.wordpress.com and today I am passing on this challenge to another fellow blogger at https://lifesrosesandthorns.wordpress.com/

I have read this story once at a popular Islamic stories site for kids (islamcan.com). My kids and I just loved it and so did my pupils… I felt like sharing the same story with you that goes very well with the above picture…

Somewhere in some part of the world, an emperor called all the young people in the kingdom together one day and said to them, “I have been thinking about this lately that I must select any one of you to be the next emperor after me.” Continue reading

The Beginning of the Adhan

Working on my child’s Islamiat assignment, I came across one very interesting story. For those of you who would like to know the origins of the Adhan and its beginning, must read it along with their kids (if any). My children just loved it, they could exactly imagine in their little minds what happened in Medina hundreds of years ago.

Also, looking for a bedtime story for kids? An Islamic themed bed time story? Then read this aloud to your kids at bedtime….

The streets of Medina were full of people. Men buying and selling goods in the market, women busy in household chores, little boys playing outside their homes, wayfarers trotting along the path… activities were being carried out as they are in streets everywhere. There was noise and mayhem and people were totally engrossed in their tasks and discussions. Continue reading

Video as a replacement to Textbook?

training_icon.png (280×266)Taking my online class last Wednesday night on Moodle, I just could not marvel at the facilities I am provided with. Yes, these are from home, I can adjust and watch them at whatever timings suit me and so and so. Everyone knows the wonders of studying and working from home.

But, considering the same thing for my kids, I was thinking whether it was an appropriate idea to replace videos and online audio classes with textbooks?

They provide pictures and live streaming and that will provide a practical approach to learning. The recording of the class will be available again and again and again! You can play and show the video several times if the kids did not understand anything or have forgotten any part of the lecture. They felt lazy to take notes? They don’t remember what assignment they were supposed to submit? When was the due date? Oh come on, you would just say, open up and watch the file again. Continue reading

Home Schooling: Teaching Science

Science_Explosion.png (292×170)Teaching Science is interesting and has a major impact on almost all of our daily actions. The way we walk and talk, what we see around us, what we hear, are all implications of science in one way or the other.

As children grow, they take much interest in the surrounding around themselves. So do they in the work activities their elders are doing. They want to imitate them and try to learn more about those activities. There are many ways you can teach scientific rules and the ways of nature to your kids at home. Continue reading

Saying Salah in Jamaat

NYUMBANGMASJID.png (146×209) While sitting for lunch together, my kids asked me why boys (and all males) were supposed to say Salah in the mosque with all other men, rather than pray privately in their homes?

Both of my kids are boys and they have crossed the age of seven. Their inquiring faces tell me they are just curious to hear my reply. This is what I tell them,

Suppose you want to build a huge building and you intend to do it for social welfare. You alone do not have the strength or resources; after all its a huge project. You have two options: either you do it alone or you seek help of others. Continue reading
