Salaams mummies. Hope you are all well inshaAllah. I am sure you are all aware of the sad circumstances, due to which we cancelled class. Our condolences to the bereaved family. Please do recite a Surah Fateha for Marhuma.

We decided to put up a lesson anyway for you all to do with your children. After all, mom’s lap is the first Madressa.

Qur’an
For Qur’an this week we had decided to introduce the letter ‘baa’. Pictures of the flashcards are below. Also please keep revising Surah Ikhlas Ayah 1 with your children.

As the focus on Tareekh is going to be on Bibi Sakina, we decided to introduce the concept of water etiquettes. Pictures with the writeup are below. We suggest that over the next week, we all practice these etiquettes whenever possible. Children’s minds’ are so impressionable. InshaAllah with the Wasila of Bibi Sakina, our children will begin to practice all these etiquettes.

Tareekh

This week we are focusing on Bibi Sakina and the story board is included in this post. Please see the next post for the Bibi Sakina activity.

image

Today, we are going to talk about Bibi Sakina.

image

Her baba was Imam Hussain and her mama was Bibi Rubab. She also had a baby brother called Hazrat Ali Asghar.

image

Every night she used to sleep on her Baba's chest.

image

She used to do perfect Hijab and loved to recite Qur'an.

image

But when she was four years old, something bad happened.

image

She went to Karbala with her family. She and the other children were thirsty there for three days.

image

On the day of Aashura, her baba and baby brother became Shaheed.

image

Then the bad people put her and her family in prison. She used to cry a lot there remembering her Baba.

image

Even though she was so sad, she would hug the other Bibis to make them happy. She was very good and kind.

image

Now her Zarih is in Shaam and we can visit her there.

Thanks a lot mums. Hope your children find this week’s lesson interesting iA and learn lots.

Tareekh:
For Tareekh this week we focused on Imam Hassan and learnt some lovely new rhymes as well. The storyboard is included below.

image

Today we are going to talk about Imam Hassan.

image

Imam Hassan is our second Imam.

image

He was also one of the Panjatan.

image

His grandfather was Prophet Mohammed.

image

This is his family. His baba was Imam Ali. His mama was Bibi Fatema. Imam Hussain was his brother. He also had two sisters, Bibi Zainab and Bibi Um Kulthum.

image

He and his brother Imam Hussain, are the kings of Jannat.

image

He used to have a sufra in his house everyday where everyone, rich and poor, could come and eat.

image

Now, let me tell you a story about Imam Hassan. It was the day before Eid and all the children in Madina were talking about their new clothes. Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain didn't have any new clothes. So they asked their mummy Bibi Fatema. "All the children will have new clothes tomorrow. What about our new clothes?"

image

Bibi Fatema said, "inshaAllah if Allah wants, the tailor will bring them tomorrow." After the children went to sleep, she prayed to Allah and asked for His help.

image

The next morning at Fajr time, there was a knock on the door. It was a tailor and he had brought new clothes for the Imams. Imam Hassan got a green shirt and Imam Hussain got a red one.

image

When Prophet Mohammed met Bibi Fatema he asked her, "Do you know who the tailor was? It was an angel from Jannat!!"

image

He is buried in Jannatul Baqi.
