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).

Tareekh:

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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….)

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.

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

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.
