Ramadhaan Activity 2 - 2011 Charity Lives Here!

We learnt about Sadaqah, Charity today. We learnt the meaning of Sadaqah and Zakaah. Also we read this Aayaah from the Qur'aan :

Believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and spend of that whereof He has made you trustees. And such of you as believe and spend (in Allâh's Way), theirs will be a great reward. (Al-Hadid 57:7)

And we discussed this Hadeeth:  On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: The messenger of Allah said :

 "Each person's every joint must perform a charity every day the sun comes up : to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoistingd up his belongings onto it is a charity: a good word is a charity, every step you take to prayers is a charity and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity."
Related by Bukhari and Muslim

Also we learnt the Hadeeth with the addition "Your smile to your brother is a charitable act".

Then Maimoonah read this small book from A Muslim Child is Born

Then we had a till that we had started collecting money to be given in charity when it fills. Alhamdulillaah little more to fill as it is almost done we hope to give the whole contribution to the charity organization here who are sending things to the people in Africa who are suffering from famine. So we discussed about the horn of Africa and the calamity that they are tested with and the importance of charity. She was in fact saying she wants take this money and go on her own in the plane to Africa and give it to them : )

So we decorated this till with smart ark print out and this is how it looks now.


Then we made a journal entry. I asked her what she would like to write today about charity. She said smiling is charity. So she wrote that and pasted these and decorated the page.

Then we played the Charity Shop game. Masha Allaah she enjoyed this smart ark Product. In Fact she won the game. She was feeling sorry for me and said Ummi here you take and collect for charity lol!


Masha Allaah it was another fruitful day this Ramadhaan. 

Insha Allaah this will be one entry for sis Umm Sarah's Give Away!

Umm Tafari said...

As salaam alaikum Umm Maimoonah,

So wonderful to see Maimoonah doing so well with the journal concept, maashaa Allah.

UmmSara said...

MashaAllah, very nice topic and beautiful activities. We too want to play game about sadaqah (most probably Sadaqah, sadaqah game by Umm An-Nu'man).

Umm Maimoonah said...

Alaikum salaam warahmathullaah Ya Akhawaat and Jazzakumullaah Khyr for all the encouraging kind comments.

Umm Suhailah, I thought you are doing those wonderful stories of the Qur'aan with your kids, masha Allaah so you are organized you can enter with them I guess! : )

Umm Umamah, masha Allaah she liked the charity shop game as she was able to read now it makes sense for her I guess, I wonder how she would play with someone her age! Oh so nice that we can benefit from each other masha Allaah!

Umm Tafari, I do not know how much I should thank you for your sharing of this concept. It has really given her a lot of confidence masha Allah. Jazzakillaah Khayr!

Umm Sara, hope to see your charity activities soon Insha Allaah!
