Alhamdulillaah! With the permission of sister Umm Ibraheem we managed to re do her The First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah with some additions such as the inclusion of why the ten days are special. Also with the permission of sister Umm Safiyyah Madeehah bint Nafees we included her well written story of Umm Ismaaeel and her little boy as a mini book to go with the lapbook. All these materials were used at the recently concluded "The Merits of the First ten days of Dhul Hijjah" workshop here in Doha along with the Stories put onto Slideshows to make it interesting for the kids.
