Monday, 15 June 2015

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

Studying Prophet Muhammad's biography can leave us with a glazed portrayal of amazing Khatejah. But what is it that made her the enterprising 'Mother of Believers', a remarkable woman of God?

Married With Kids (The Apprentice)
Khatejah radhi-allah `anha [may Allah be pleased with her] was from the rich, noble and powerful Khuwaylid family in Madina. Her father was Khuwaylid, a noble leader of his tribe. However, he was killed in battle while Khatejah was young.

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم


And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. - Qur'an, 2:186
You may think some sounds are insignificant. Your child's first word and aYou may feel that whatever enters your ear is just daily noise-trappings which you can't really control. Whispers, calls, beeps, notifications, music, traffic. Allah, the Creator of our senses, allowed all of these noises to exist but pouring them all inside us is not healthy. Prophet Jesus told his disciples 'a heart can only pour out what it contains'. If we review what we're listening to, we might understand what we're pouring out, that much better.

Shadow Puppet Show: Prophet Yusuf `Alayhis-salam

Friday, 18 April 2014

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

Twelve cool Masjid students (Class Hawa, level 2!) put on a shadow puppet show depicting Prophet Yusuf's story of injustices and brotherhood. One hundred and twenty students never paid this much attention in mosque!

Ingredients
We recycled a large TV box for our 'theatre', sellotaped a sheet of white paper on the front, used an overhead projector as our light source and reused scrap card for all our props, as well using drinks' stirrers as puppet handles.

Below are excerpts from the story we wrote but if anyone wants the entire script, comment below and I'll send you a download link. NB: Our version includes the Urdu language.
