Maimoonah's Aashoorah Fast!

Innal Hamdalillaah another huge milestone by the grace and mercy of Allaah! Maimoonah fasted today! Yes whole day masha Allaah! Today was the first time in her life she has fasted, subhanallaah and she was so happy!

She woke up for suhoor, had her snack and had water. Prayed Fajr and went back to sleep. Woke up at about 9.30 am and masha Allaah continued fasting. We did lot of activities today.

Getting ready to pray Fajr after writing something on the board!

 The sweet sister at Homeschool Moments had put a timely post with TJ's Muharram Unit study. I wanted to do all but I have run out of ink to print, so I managed to print only the Aashoorah Fast pages and we went through the unit study. We read and spoke about Moosa alaihissalaam and Maimoonah was very happy that she was fasting on the day Firoun was drowned and Allaah gave victory to Moosa alaihissalaam. We spoke about the Sacredness of the month of Muharram and made this small booklet about the Aashoorah Fast.

She filled in all the info except for the last page. She had to write what she knows about Muharram, she said she was tired and will do it tomorrow Insha Allaah!

We also continued with our daily work doing mostly geography today and completed a lot of it masha Allaah. She also prayed Dhuhar and Asr with me and did Star fall.

And at Magrib broke fast, she made dua and prayed Magrib and Isha had her dinner and now fast asleep, Alhamdulillaah!

Her Dinner today!

Abi was very pleased with her and so was she lol. Inalhamdulillaah!

 Allaahu baarik lahaa, she did not trouble me at all, only once at lunch time she said "I am hungry, but I cannot eat". And then when I was trying to keep the dates few minutes before iftaar she asked me can I just eat one date Ummi? I explained to her if she does that she would have broken her fast and no reward but if she can wait for few minutes then she would get all the rewards. She said she will wait. So Masha Allaah I was not very sure if she could fast she is only 4 years and 3 months to be exact but she did well by the mercy of Allaah and she did it truly for the sake of Allaah as I just could feel it Alhamdulillaah! May Allaah keep her upon this Ikhlaas and make her firm and obedient to Him till the end! Aameen!

Alaikum salaam ukhtee Umm Adam,
Oh so wonderful news ukhtee. Today Maimoonah was talking about Adam and Roqaiyah as she was studying Continents and Nations and she had to find Norway, so she remembered all of you! Awaiting to see you all soon. Lovely masha Allaah! May Allaah bless you with the new home and make it spacious and give many many barakaah. Aameen!

As Salaamu Alaiki!

This is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo nice Mashaa'Allaah.

May Allaah reward her much Ameen as fasting for adults is at times difficult!

she really did well and I am so proud of her and all her hard work!

She is growing to be a beautiful young lady Mashaa'Allaah as her love for Allaah and the deen of Al-Islaam is very much apparent. :*)

I really do hope that Allaah bless you Umm Maimoonah and your husband for striving to raise a daughter that loves Allaah, the Prophet, and this deen with all her heart Ameen

*hugs to you and Maimoonah*

*big hugs Umm Adam* glad to see you I miss you much! I left a comment on your blog but I do not think it went through :)

Subhanallaah I am so thankful to Allaah that He has blessed us and guided us to give the tasfiyah and the tarbiyah for our child, for sure if He did not help us then we would have failed Allaah forbid, He is indeed Full of MERCY! May He continue to help us till the end! Aameen!
