Ramadhan Workshops ages 2-3

The 2-3 yr old workshops have been off to a great start! All the kids are super enthusiastic to learn, sing rhymes and make some special crafts. We made a Ramadan mobile with a big moon and star on our first day. 

On our second day ( see pics) we talked about how good and bad deeds effect our heart. Good deeds make our heart soft like cotton and bad deeds make our heart rough like sand paper. In this picture the kids are showing off their fruit loop bracelets that they could snack on every time they did a good deed. Needless to say all the bracelets were eaten up by the time class was over!!! 

On our third workshop we talked about recycling and reusing. The kids loved watching a clip from YouTube that explained this. We are looking forward to our next couple of classes and watching these little ones explore, learn and grow this Ramadan.

Pajama Story Time and Ramadhan Reflections

We had wonderful sessions for all of our children yesterday during workshop. The younger ones arrived ready for fun in their pajamas! The 2-3 year olds read a Ramadhan-themed story and created a luminous lantern craft. The 4-6 year olds read Welcome Ramadan (a GoodWord Kids book) and made lovely bookmarks. Thanks to Nasreen Dharsee-Dungersi and Shamim Ladak for leading those classes.


Those 7 years of age and older enjoyed an interactive discussion with Br. Mazaher Tejani. They focused on the importance of the Holy month of Ramadhan, with special emphasis on the revelation of the Quran, and the power of the Nights of Qadr.

How did it get from Allah to Prophet Muhammad?  Did it come down verse by verse, or all at once?  Did it come to Prophet Muhammad’s heart or his mind?   They also discussed the power of the Grand Night, and calculated that the Night of Qadr is equ…

Healing powers of the 99 Names of Allah

Last weekend our workshops for the 4-9 age groups focused on 11 names of Allah that are associated with healing various parts of the body.  The children did various activities to learn and reinforce the names, their meanings and application in healing.


On Sunday, as a culminating activity and to reward them for learning 11 names in one short weekend, we played games like broken telephone (hearing:As-Samee), 

Pictureka (seeing:Al-Basiir) 

doctor doctor (4-6 year olds diagnosing and healing the baby) 


Operation (7-9 year olds carefully removing the ailment and correctly using the name of Allah to treat the area)
We also played Asma-ul-Husna Bingo, a penny dropping game with one eye closed to reinforce Al-Basiir and a blindfolded game to reinforce As-Samee.

Hopefully the children have been using the names at home when they have minor ailments of the body.  Here is the list of names we worked on and their meaning as well as corresponding body part for you to remind them at home and even us…

Lessons in Karbala

Our 7-8 Year old class did an amazing job examining their own lives and how they live up to the lessons Karbala has taught us.
