Summary - Week 6 - Creations of Allaah - Nature

This is the summary for Week 6

Creations of Allaah - Nature

Masha Allaah the mini work book was so wonderful and a good read too! Maimoonah completed the work book and tried reading the new words. She would not let me read as she wanted to read the book herself, so the new words I helped her and she finished reading the book. Hope to practice reading during our break Insha Allaah.

She loves pasting exactly inside the box, removes many times and pastes trying to be accurate masha Allaah!

I asked her her favorite soorah etc and and held her hand and wrote little about her on the work book. This is the first time I have asked her about favorite things and she was taking her time to answer. She is maturing masha Allaah.

She did well in the consonants too. As we are following the Glenn Doman method for reading I do not teach her phonics but masha Allaah she has picked it up well. She starts listening to the sounds and identifies the letter. Also she remembers the reading words I guess and thinks what the beginning letters are Allaahu A'lam.

We read a lot from the Encylopedia regarding rivers, trees, mountains, rocks, oceans etc etc. I learnt a lot too.

Asmaaul Husna
We learnt the Names and attributes "Ar Rahmaan, Ar Raheem and Ar Raoof"

Qur'aan Memorization
Masha Allaah she finished Soorah Inshirah and Soorah Qaariyah. We read the Tafsir and masha Allaah now she is keeping in mind the meanings of the aayaah too. We have started At Teen.

Islaamic Studies
Taught her the names of the 10 sahabahs promised jannaah - Asharathul Mubashshrah. I want her to be familar with the names of our salafus saalih. I have already taught her the names of the Ummahaathul Mu'mineen and the names of the Prophets. This is was on my list for some time and finally did it masha Allaah. Next I intend to teach her the name of at least 10 well known scholars Insha Allaah. As she grows it will be easier to learn much deeper about all of them Insha Allaah!

We have enjoyed reading the mini work book. Also she has been trying to read this book on her own and masha Allaah succeeded.

I have been reading to her The Learn About Series "Story of Hajj"

She practiced letters "U,R,r,E,e, Baa"

Making words
This time she was typing words on Yahoo the whole week, she has got the mouse control too masha Allaah now. Words she typed "Nature, mountain, sun, moon etc etc. She also did the word recognition matching activity.

We have completed MEP maths first 20 chapters for Reception Year. Insha Allaah will start the next 20 chapters from Week 7.

Montessori Activity

Cleaning the table

Alhamdulillaah, this ends our first 6 weeks of the "Islaam is My Life - Pre School Curriculum". I sincerely thank all the sisters who left comments and Jazzakumullaah Khayr for your encouragement and motivation.

The Best Days of the Year

The Best Days of the Year - Ten Days of Dhul Hijah

Good deeds are more beloved to Allah

‏ ‏
‏ النَّبِيِّ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏ ‏أَنَّهُ قَالَ ‏ ‏مَا الْعَمَلُ فِي أَيَّامٍ أَفْضَلَ مِنْهَا فِي هَذِهِ قَالُوا وَلَا الْجِهَادُ قَالَ وَلَا الْجِهَادُ إِلَّا رَجُلٌ خَرَجَ يُخَاطِرُ بِنَفْسِهِ وَمَالِهِ فَلَمْ يَرْجِعْ بِشَيْءٍ ‏

"There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved by Allaah than these (ten) days." The Prophet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, was then asked: "Not even Jihaad in Allaah’s way?" He replied: "Not even Jihaad in Allaah’s way; except for a person who went out (for Jihaad) with his self and wealth and came back with none (i.e. lost all for Allaah)."[Bukhari 969]

Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali (may Allah have mercy on him) said,” It appears and Allah knows best that good deeds practiced during these ten days are superior to any other ten days during any other month” La’taif al Ma’rif

It's recommended to be involved in a lot Thikr.

وَيَذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ فِي أَيَّامٍ مَعْلُومَاتٍ

And mention the Name of Allah on appointed days [ Hajj 28]

Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali (may Allah have mercy on him) said, “The majority of the scholars view the appointed days as the ten days of Dhul Hijah.”

3. They are included in the days Allah appointed for Musa (peace and blessings be upon him)

وَوَاعَدْنَا مُوسَىٰ ثَلَاثِينَ لَيْلَةً وَأَتْمَمْنَاهَا بِعَشْرٍ فَتَمَّ مِيقَاتُ رَبِّهِ أَرْبَعِينَ لَيْلَةً ۚ

And We appointed for Musa (Moses) thirty nights and added (to the period) ten (more), and he completed the term, appointed by his Lord, of forty nights [Al-A’raf142]

4. Allah completed His religion on the 9th

الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا ۚ

This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favor upon you, and

have chosen for you Islam as your religion.[ Al-Ma’idah 3]5.

The sacrifice is done on the Eid and this is the Sunnah of Ibraheem

6. Allah frees slaves from the fire on Arafah more than any other day

نَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏ ‏قَالَ ‏ ‏مَا مِنْ يَوْمٍ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ أَنْ يُعْتِقَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فِيهِ عَبْدًا أَوْ أَمَةً مِنْ النَّارِ مِنْ يَوْمِ ‏ ‏عَرَفَةَ ‏ ‏وَإِنَّهُ ‏ ‏لَيَدْنُو ثُمَّ ‏ ‏ يُبَاهِي بِهِمْ الْمَلَائِكَةَ وَيَقُولُ مَا أَرَادَ هَؤُلَاءِ

The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “There is no day on which Allah frees more of His slaves from Fire than the Day of Arafah, and He verily draws near, then boasts of them before the angles, saying: ‘What do they seek?’” (Sahih Muslim1348)

· There is great virtue in Fasting on the 9th.

سئل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عن صوم يوم عرفة فقال: "أحتسب على الله أن يكفر السنة التي قبله والسنة التي بعده،

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was asked about fasting on the Day of of Arafah. He said,” Fasting the day of `Arafah expiates the [minor] sins of two years: a past one and a coming one”. [Muslim 1162]

7. Eid Al-Adha is the 10th

8. These are the days for Hajj

لْحَجُّ أَشْهُرٌ مَعْلُومَاتٌ ۚ

The Hajj (pilgrimage) is (in) the well-known (lunar year) months [ Al-Baqarah 197]* the other days are Shawwal and Dhul Qa’idah

9 Allah swears by these days.

وَالْفَجْرِوَلَيَالٍ عَشْروَالشَّفْعِ وَالْوَتْرٍِ

1By the dawn;

2. By the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Dhul-Hijjah),

3. And by the even and the odd . [ Fajr 1-3 ]

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “ The ten are the ten days of Dhul- Hijjah and the odd is the Day of Arafah and the even is the Eid [ Ahmed 3/ 327 and Bazzar 2286] Ibn Rajab graded the isnad of this hadeeth as being Hasan.
