So this is the cover of the Scrapbook.
Explained to her the hadeeth that you see on the cover.
We learnt about scholars and what do they do. We used this poem and and this one and pasted on the scrapbook. Discussed about the fact that we are ordered by Allaah to ask those who know and shun ignorance in the dheen of Allaah. And this is where the Ulama are very important.
Umar Bin Abdul Azeez
So we started with the 2nd Century scholars after the Sahabah (as we are already doing another scrapbook on sahabahs any way) and from them we choose Umar bin Abdul Azeez.
We discussed about his character, his justice, how young he was when he memorised the Qur'aan and the fact that he used to fear death and cry even when he was a young child. The interesting fact was that the wolves did not harm the sheep during his rule due to his justice and this was something amazing for Maimoonah that she kept repeating it to everyone. Its so fascinating that we have such wonderful true characters in Islaam where we can continue discussions upon discussions, subhanallaah and indeed talking about them and reading their marvelous God fearing characters and incidents can only be a great influence for the Tarrbiyah of our children.
We read his biography and chose important facts from it. Then with her help I typed on Word and printed them out. Then she pasted them on the scrapbook and decorated.
Some pictures are not clear Inshaa Allaah will upload the document we did soon so that you can see the contents clearly and those who wish to use it can use with their kids as well. You can download the document we used for the scrapbook here.
So that ends Umar bin Abdul Azeez. Inshaa Allaah we will go on with the next scholar soon.
You can also read more here. Found this after we completed this study.
