Ramadhan Reading Program

reading program, ramadhan, islamAs I mentioned earlier in my article entitled, How to Motivate Kids For Ramadhan, I had mentioned in one of the points the benefits of reading out Islamic based books and Ramadhan themed stories to make the kids feel motivated for the upcoming days.

Well, here I have come across this Ramadhan Reading Program for Kids, which really seems something interesting for kids to participate in. Its organized by Alexandria Potter, Founder at Layla Lights, and she aims to provide a common platform where children and their mothers, can make the most out of this blessed month. Continue reading

Happiness Is…

taking a break, weekend fun, life, holiday

So all of us deserve a break, don’t we??

In fact, so many times, a break from your daily routine is all you want…

Taking a break really helps, by the way, to soothe your nerves, to relax your self and to give yourself time to breathe. Sitting on that chair for hours glaring the computer screen, hogging the kids all day long, same chores, same activities to perform day after day makes your mind uneasy and your body bored!

The Power of 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

Colors Of The Sky

1301042352All of us know that there are seven skies, one on top of the other and the throne of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala lies on the topmost sky. But many of us do not know the the names and colors of those skies. I was going through something and I got to read about them which I am stating here: Continue reading

Beginning with Images

happy33

I have just started working upon images (creating my own and editing some form the net) and this is my very first attempt in making a new one from scratch!

Till now, I had dealt with writing stuff down, create web content, perform research work, write product reviews and so on but now I hope to further improve upon my skills and learn graphic designing as a formal course, Insha’ Allah to take on more freelancing jobs as they develop.

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

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. Teaching Science to kids can be easy yet challenging for science encompasses lots and lots of topics and categories.

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
