Week 8 – 28 Jan 2016

Salaams all.

Here is the recap for our class on 28th Jan.

Qur’an:

For Qur’an, we started as usual with our revision of Surah Ikhlaas. We then continued onto our letter ‘taa’. We did ‘taa’ for ‘tawbah’.

image

We spoke about how tawbah means saying sorry to Allah when we make a mistake.

We also did an activity where we stuck the dots on the taa.

image

Tareekh:

For tareekh we did the story of Prophet Yunus.

image

It was a sunny day. Prophet Yunus was walking.

image

It was a stormy day. Prophet Yunus was drowning.

image

A whale swallowed Prophet Yunus

image

Prophet Yunus prayed for help. A frog prayed too.

image

Prophet Yunus prayed for help. A duck prayed too.

image

image

image

image

image

... And all the other fish.

image

Allah saved Prophet Yunus from the whale.

We also did an activity where the children stick pictures of the animals who prayed for Prophet Yunus around him.

image

Akhlaq:

Finally for Akhlaq, we followed up on both Quran and tareekh.

We spoke about saying sorry to people we love if we ever hurt them and in other circumstances where we maybe at fault as well.

We also spoke about the importance of dua as it was dua that saved Prophet Yunus from the belly of the whale. We also recited the Ayahe Kareema a few times which is the dua of Prophet Yunus.

Finally, we wrapped up with a poem about water conservation.

Week 7 – 21 Jan 2016

Salaams mummies.

Here is a recap of our class on the 21 of Jan. It was the day of the Wiladat of the father of Imame Zamana, Imam Hasan Askari (AS) and so we centered our weekly theme on him.

Qur’an:

For Qur’an, we revised Surah Ikhlas and the letter ‘taa’. We did ‘taa’ ‘tamar’ again and ate more Tamar to celebrate the birthday of Imam Hasan Askari (AS).

image

image

Tareekh:

For Tareekh we had a short introduction on Imam Hasan (as below) and then we followed that with a story with some props.

image

Today we are going to talk about Imam Hasan Askari (AS).

image

He is our 11th Imam.


His daddy was Imam Ali Naqi (AS) his mummy was Bibi Saleel.
image

He was married to a beautiful princess called Bibi Narjis.

He was the father of Imame Zamana (atfs)

We told the children two stories.

The first was about how the king sent two bad people to hurt the Imam but the Imam was so good that the bad people became good as well and didn’t hurt him.

image

The second story was about how a bad king put Imam in a cage with some hungry wild animals so that they would hurt the Imam but when the king checked back after sometime, he saw all animals sitting peacefully around the Imam.

We then spoke about the Imams shrine had been broken recently and showed the children pictures.

image

And then we spoke about how the lovers of Ahlulbayt are rebuilding it and asked the children if they would like to rebuild it as well.

We wrapped up with an activity where we gave them a blank zari and dome to stick and asked them to repair imams shrine with golden bricks and silver rods.

image

The children were very excited to have repaired Imam’s shrine.

Akhlaq:

Finally for Akhlaq, we again reiterated that the 11 Imam is the father of our Living Imam and then we spoke about respect to parents.

We covered the points below using roleplay to convey the message.

1. When parents come in the room, we should say salaam and stand up to greet them. We should also kiss their hand as a mark of respect.
2. We should give water to our parents.
3. We should speak to them softly and respectfully.
4. We shouldn’t say no or throw tantrums.
5. We should obey them.

Week 6 – Jan 14 2016

Salaams mummies.

Here is a recap of our class on Jan 14.

We continued on our theme of 17th Rabiul Awwal by honoring the other personality who was born on that day, Imam Jafare Sadiq (AS).

Qur’an:

For Quran, we introduced the letter ‘taa’. We did ‘taa’ for ‘Tamar’ (dates).

image

image

We reinforced the concept by tasting yummy dates which teacher Sarah brought and we coloured a palm tree. (Well its actually a coconut tree but that’s a palm tree too so….)

image

Tareekh:

For Tareekh we had a short introduction of Imam Jafare Sadiq highlighting a few points.

1. He is the 6th Imam.
2. He was born on the same day as Prophet Mohammad.
3. He and Prophet Mohammad were both called As Sadiq.
4. He taught us many things about this world.

We continued with a story about Baahis the Explorer where he learns about many animals from his parents who learnt all they know from the famous Hadith of Imam Jafare Sadiq called Tawhide Mufaddhal.

image

Finally we had an activity where we stuck animal stickers in small colourful booklets and made our own ‘Animals that Imam Spoke About’ book.

image

Akhlaq:

Following up from Tareekh, we spoke about the importance of respecting books and how to take care of them. We showed the children one torn and one good book and discussed how we couldn’t read the story in the torn book.

We spoke about the following points.

1. Not throwing the book.
2. Not colouring or writing in it.
3. Not tearing or cutting it.
4. Not gluing the pages together.
5. To turn the pages carefully one by one.

Finally, we spoke about how the most respected book is the Qur’an and how we should do Wudhu before touching it, carry it carefully and with respect, never place it on the floor or step on it and to kiss it as a sign of respect when we are done.

Rhyme – Ya Muhammad Mustafa

Born in Makkah
Near the Kaaba
Into the arms of Aminah
Was Muhammad the last prophet
Mercy to Mankind

Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad Mustafa
Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad the final messenger

Abdul Muttalib was his grandfather
Abdullah was his father
Abu Talib was his uncle
Aminah was his mother

Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad Mustafa
Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad the final messenger

Come to Islam come to Islam
Submit to the will of God
Come to Imaan come to Imaan
And have faith in the Ahlul bayt

Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad Mustafa
Ya Muhammad Ya Muhammad the final messenger
