Today we learnt about dates and the date palm trees. We learnt this hadeeth: Masha Allaah since we live in a land where you see only date palm trees it was easy to explain this hadeeth to Maimoonah!
Then we took out our Ramadhaan Lapbook we made last year and read all the hadeeth related to dates from this date bowl!
When she read the hadeeth about the Messenger of Allaah sallaahu alaihiwasallam saying "O Aisha those who have dates in their house will not go hungry".. Maimoonah was saying out the house also Ummi as we eat dates outside also... : ) I had to tell her we stop where the Messenger of Allaah stopped and this is how it works: )
Then she made this Journal Entry today. Masha Allaah she like the date palm tree and keep telling its like me .. The Date Palm tree is like a Muslim... like me. : )
I told her a little about Ibn Umar radhiyallaahu anhu who was only a small boy and he knew the answer for it but felt shy to tell the Messenger of Allaah. And how intelligent he was for his age and we made the connection that Abdullaah ibn Umar was the son of Umar bin Khattab one of the sahabah who is promised Jannah. Just made it a point that what we have studied lives Insha Allaah!
Then we did this Dates Fall Down Maths Activity and learnt subtraction!
Then we made this cute date bx from smart ark. She coloured decorated with silver and gold glitter and put some ajwa dates into it and packed.
Its waiting to be opened for Iftaar Insha Allaah!. She really loved the box masha Allaah!.
