Today (actually yesterday, I could not post because the PC was not with me : ) we made this little booklet on An Umrah in Ramadhaan. Alhamdulillaah we are hoping to leave for Umrah soon Insha Allaah by the grace and mercy of Allaah. Indeed all praise is due to Him for enabling us to do this and for blessing us with this greatest Nimah!
So to make it easier on Maimoonah, I decided to do this booklet with all what she needs to do to complete an Umrah. We spoke about the hadeeth that says an Umrah in Ramadhaan is equal to a hajj with the Messenger of Allaah sallaahu alaihiwassalam. And we discussed that Allaah rewards so much for this act. I also showed her on you tube the places involved while performing Umrah. (The Haram is indeed so crowded, subhanallaah, please do make dua that Allaah makes it easy for us with little Maimoonah around)
So here the pics of the booklet.
Then for today's journal entry we tried sis Umm Tafari's idea of blow painting
. First we took a thick paper, and some water colours, tissues and a straw!
Then randomly poured the water colours on to the sheet of paper.
Then Maimoonah blew the paints with the straw.
The straw we had was a very small one, and poor girl was trying very very hard to blow but the force was not enough for the paints to go all over, so she did this : ) after blowing a little
She stared using the straw to let the water colours go all over. Umm Tafari we deviated a little from your tutorial due to necessity, I hope you would not mind Insha Allaah : )
And after it dried we pasted them onto the journal. I asked Maimoonah to write whatever she wants about Ramadhaan. She told me a lot of things (thanks to the bulletin board : ). But she wanted my help to write all of them. I just told her just write one word, but she insisted she needs my help to write the whole thing. So I helped her with spellings and some words she wanted me to hold her hand and write with her. This is the end result of this masha Allaah. May Allaah reward sis Umm Tafari for guiding us along with her tutorials
