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

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 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.
