Ramadhaan Activities 2012 - Day 9 & 10

Suhoor - Colouring
We spoke about the hadeeth that say about the blessings of Suhoor and the time for suhoor. She read the Arabic words on the colouring page and coloured them.





Good Deeds


We learnt that doing good deeds in Ramadhaan brings more rewards and read the two Darul Kitab Books on Doing Good Deeds and Good Manners. This time I asked her to read and tell me all the good deeds she read about and to talk about each one of them and we discussed the deeds she usually do and the deeds that she needs to improve on Inshaa Allaah.



Then we also used the Box Manners and I asked her to sort out the deeds she has done and the deeds that she has not. So she had sorted them and I saw 3 cards on the side deeds not done. They were visiting a sick, keeping away from things that does not concern you and thinking good of others. I knew she has not understood what they are except for visiting the sick which we have not done with her for sometime now. Then we explained to her the meaning of those deeds. This way I could understand more about her deeds as well as she could recognize the deeds she does. We reminded her all deeds are done only to please Allaah alone.

 


Then our Good Deed tree looks like this so far.




 Alhamdulillaah today she forgot that she was fasting and she had drunk few sips of water and later she told me. And she said she knew it was Allaah who fed her and when she remembered she quickly stopped drinking. Alhamdulillaah she already knew what to do if things happen. I am happy that it happened this way bi idhnillaah as she could put into practice what she learnt.

Email Subscription - Error!

Assalaamu Alaikum Ya Akhawaat,

A sister informed me today regarding the email subscription of this blog and that she does not get any more emails on the updates. I noticed this as well since I have subscribed also. But thought I have made a mistake and unsubscribed. But since the sister informed me I feel there has been an issue and I have no idea the reason for it. Jazzakillaah Khayr sister for informing.

I have added a new widget via blogger itself now and you can find it on the right side of the blog. Inshaa Allaah you can subscribe again using this and I hope the matter is resolved. I am sorry for the all inconvenience caused. Please do let me know if you are still not receiving any updates, in that case I will contact blogger and try to sort out the matter.

Baarakallaah Feekum

Ramadhaan Activities 2012 - Day 7 & 8

Iftaar
We learnt the meaning of Iftaar, the time of Iftaar and the sunnah of hastening to break fast. She did the Ramadhaan Activity Pack, activity on Iftaar.




Helping in the Kitchen
It was time for making something yummy. We made the Ramadhaan Activity Pack Recipe Dates and Almonds Truffles.




 







Every day we make Lassi (Yoghurt Milk) for Iftaar and Maimoonah helps me. So she wanted to write the Recipe of Lassi on the activity pack.

Ramadhaan Activities - Day 5 & 6

Phases of the Moon
Before we did this activity Maimoonah gave away 15 riyals in Charity and got some books on Ramadhaan at McDonald's. And Alhamdulillaah surprisingly it had a book on the Phases of the Moon and it talked about a nice activity the kids did in Ramadhaan to know the "Faces of the Moon".


  


Maimoonah wanted to try it out too. I only wish if they could have not had human figures on it. We used cotton thread to do this activity. It was a nice way of developing fine motor skills as well.





We learnt about the different phases of the moon and when she goes for Taraaweeh she looks at the moon and records the phase the following day.




Islamic Months
We did the Activity from Ramadhaan Activity Pack. Revised all the months. Looked for the Quraan aayah that talks about the 4 sacred months and explained to her.


 



We have started revising the Qur'aan these days as well, Alhamdulillaah.

Ramadhaan Activities 2012 - Day 3 & 4

Those of you who are using the Ramadhaan Activity Pack can share your activities on this face book page Inshaa Allaah http://www.facebook.com/SmartArkIslamicToys so that it would inspire each other and it would be lovely to see how each family is doing it!


Ramadhaan Fiqh:
She enjoyed this activity from the Ramadhaan Activity Pack. I got her to read each question and explained to her the hadeeth or the Quraan Aayah that explain the fiqh mentioned. Then later asked her to answer the question and if she said yes or no I asked her why and she could tell the answer for it. Then she wrote the answers. We also discussed things that will not break her fast, like sleeping, having a bath, sniffing water, using siwaak and so on..



Ramadhaan Maths
She chose to this Activity today and loved it maashaa Allaah. She could do it very much independently.


 


Reading - Aqeedah
We read the first three books from here. These are very simple little booklets for kids to teach Aqeedah and to keep them reminded about Allaah. We enjoyed reading them together.


After our activities Maimoonah keeps saying "Ummi now what to do, now what to do?" So I pull out some art and craft things for her every now and then and this time gave her some coloured chalks, water and paper. She choose to do a journal entry and do some colouring.



Since she has read many books she was telling her Abi some time back she would love to receive a gift pack where she would have to untie a ribbon and open a box to see her gifts. So since her Abi was well pleased with her, he got her a gift pack with some hair bands in it.



He gave it to her at Suhoor and she was surprised and was so happy Maashaa Allaah. The rest of the day she was playing with the box and the hair bands.

Ramadhaan Activities - 2012 - Day 1 & 2



Alhamdulillaah already 2 days gone and Maimoonah has fasted 2 as well by the Grace and Mercy of Allaah.

We have put up a small bulletin board.


It also has the good deed tree and the Ramadhaan Tracker.

We read these two books and discussed about Ramadhaan.

 

 



She also watched A Day of Fasting TJ powerpoint.


Then we did the first Activity from our Ramadhaan Activity Pack - Command to fast. She memorized the Aayah in Arabic and English and did very well in understanding it when the Imaam recited in the night during Qiyaam.

Then explained to her the reason for fasting and the meaning of Taqwaa. She did the activities on that page. We brought out our Grammar books to review Verbs, Pronouns and Prepositions.

 

Activity 2 - We then learnt about the things that will nullify the fast. She did the activity on the pack.

 


She has started her Journal as well.





She did a little bit of finger painting and glass painting after her Ramadhaan Activities.

 




Alhamdulillaah she is ok so far with fasting even though may be once or twice she says she feels hungry : ) but continues and started praying with me regularly too. Loves to help with preparing for iftaar.

May Allaah make it easy for her throughout, Aameen.

I would like to sincerely thank sister Fehmida from www.smartark.com for helping me with the beautiful cute layout, graphics and art and craft activities and the brothers and sisters who helped in numerous other ways. Jazzakumullaah Khayr. We ask Allaah to accept this small effort from us. Aameen.

Important: Jazzakillaah Khayr for the sister who pointed this out. I have made a mistake. In the Ramadhaan Activity Pack 2, Activity 24, page 18 please delete or cut off the first sentence which talks about gifts for Eid for the kids as this would be like resembling the non muslim festivities and the children who do not get gifts would feel deprived and thus this would lead them to think Eid is not Eid except with gifts.


May Allaah accept your fasts and make you all successful this Ramadhaan and May He shower His Mercy upon you and your families. Aameen.

Ramadhaan Plans - 2012




Ramadhaan is just few days away. Alhamdulillaah we are blessed to encounter another Ramadhaan bi idhnillaah.

This Ramadhaan Maimoonah will be 5 years old and she is intending to fast. I am not sure if she would fast all but lets see how it goes. Since she is wanting to fast we are not discouraging her. So our plans for Ramadhaan this year will be based on the fact that Maimoonah would be fasting Inshaa Allaah. So things are very minimum.
