By Bint Muhammad  9

Ramadan is coming soon,
Once we sight the new moon.
Oh Allah, to you belongs all praise,
For Ramadan there is just a few more days.
Going for taraweeh with my family,
Filled with happiness, joy and glee.
Waking up for suhoor,
Smelling the fragrance of bukhoor.
We begin this month with the
Recitation of Quran,
As the Quran was revealed to our
Prophet in Ramadan.
Fasting long hours to seek your
Pleasure oh Allah,
Pondering and contemplating
upon your great signs.
Having iftar -milk and date,
Just like the Prophet ate.
Going for the prayer that is late.
Laylatul Qadr is yet to come,
It is worth more than thousand months.
The end of Ramadan has come,
How soon have you come and gone!
 EID Has risen upon us,
It is time to celebrate.
Hurry up and do not be late
Ramadan it’s a one year chance
so let’s do Ibadah to Allah

Welcome Ramadan!
By: Hafsa Mohamed, 8

Marhab Marhab Oh Ramadan;
We were waiting for you Oh Ramadan.
We need to become fit and healthy;
And feel like people which aren’t wealthy.
Do not say bad words and don’t do bad deeds;
But feed the poor and satisfy their needs.
Read Quran and pray Salah;
And don’t forget to praise Allah.
Remember Allah and make dua a lot;
Because the angels are there and shaytan is not.

Ramadan,The Good Deeds Hunt
by: Maryam Khan  9

Knock Knock! It's Ramadan, I am looking for the moon.
aren't you doing too? I hope we all see it soon.
It is time to test our patience, and face the challenge, remember when you are eating Suhoor or Iftaar to just keep your balance.
Isn't Ramadan for earning good deeds? the prophet (saws) help others all the time, so loving, so caring he was the most generous of all mankind.
Help others in Ramadan, help in one or the other way. Don't just wait for big opportunities , help can be in the form of words that you say.
let's race for more good deeds, as the reward will be more than double. Specially, keep in mind the last 10 odd nights, they are called Laylatul Qadar.
Finally the day!, the day of Eid will arrive, no inappropriate stuff after the good deeds hunt.
the whole purpose of Ramadan, was to prepare you for rest 11 months.

Well, after this blessed month, don't let the Masajid cry. go to the Masjid regularly, do not just pass by.

Such beautiful thoughts and such wonderful sense of poetry...... Don't stop writing young writers. Another competition maybe right around teh corner.. Allahu Alum!

Ramadan Prep Webinar Explained


A very logical question many of you may have........

How many times do we just fall into Ramadan, scrambling to manage all that we have to & would like to do. As mothers we sacrifice a lot of time for our kids, and other household duties on a daily basis. Many a times mothers feel they can't gain as much from Ramadan as they need to fulfill the needs & demands of children, or keep children engaged in Ramadan.

In fact, in Ramadan mothers actually end up craving the "personal Ibadah time" even more, because they know it's such small pocket of time for gaining EXTRA AJR & EXTRA HASANAT, and just like everyone less they would like to maximize it too!

This is something ALL MOTHERS can relate to. Depending on whats happening in our lives and the ages of our children, we find ourselves combating the SPIRITUAL LOW in Ramadan. I've been there.....many times! More, than I would have liked to be and it was mostly because, despite my wanting to I wasn't able to prepare for Ramadan ahead of time. I didn't know exactly what to do and what not to do. In Ramadan I wanted to feel:
  • more peaceful
  • more connected to Allah
  • more diligent in ibadah
  • more involved with kids in the spirit of Ramadan

Yet I would find myself feeling sad, sometimes even bitter for not being able to achieve what I would have liked to in Ramadan. I wan't to help others not feel that way...... There is a solution. There is a guideline that we can follow as closely or as loosely as possible, given our own unique circumstances.

This webinar is for mothers, to enter Ramadan prepared and focused. It is not only a means of offering ideas, suggestions, reflections & activities to mothers to consciously involve their children in their preparation for Ramadan but also to enjoin their kids to be happily engaged & busy in the spirit of Ramadan, Beidhnillahi Ta'Allah.

If you relate to the above or know someone who needs it ...... Join and encourage others to join

Salah Centre Revisited


This post is my  commitment to redo the following project with my kids in a different way Inshallah. Once done I will update this post with the new pics Inshallah



Salah Centre

The following project will take more than a day to finish but we started out making it today. Inshallah when finished the Salah centre will be put up on the wall in the kids room where my Lil muallims can use is as a reminder of Salah timings, keep their after Salah dua and adhkar booklets and other cards related to Salah.

I took a bristol borad and folded in a 3 parts and cut off an extra strip from the bottom to use inside the salah centre.

Next Lil Muallim # 2 choose shiny craft paper I had lying around to make the cover of the Salah Centre. The cover is actually supposed to signify Bab us Salah the door of Jannah through which those established their prayers on time will enter.

Notice the key hole and the handle? That's for what we made next.......

We made a key with golden card stock and Lil muallim # 2 stuck praying persons coloring on it..... this was to depict the hadith As salatu miftahul Jannah .....Salah is the key to Paradise.

Inside Lil Muallim # 2 stuck the salah timings clock faces around the booklet on the hadith highlighting the importance of praying on time. Check it out.
