And for the last round of activities!
8. Hajj ritual setup: By using the kids blocks, making a few things and printing Day 1 to 5 cards from Islamic Bulletin Board, we setup our Hajj table. This was by far the best teaching tool we had about Hajj. It was very hands on for them. So many people did Hajj on our table, AR took almost everyone he knows to Hajj.
|Using the kids wooden blocks we made Mina and Jamarat. You will be able to find many things to represent these if you look around the house.|
|We used 2 big rocks from our rock collection to represent Safa and Marwa mountains|
|The empty area is where Arafah is, the Hujjaj stand there and make dua. Muzdalifah is where the people are sleeping.|
|Felt sacrificial animals, the camel is missing.|
9. Hajj Felt story board: Using our felt story board we did some hajj related stories and a life time journey of Hajj in our imagination. Unfortunately I was not able to take pictures and now we are out of town. It was a time consuming project for prepare for me, because I had to cut out each part separately.
10. Memorize and Chant the Talbiyah, Tahleel, Tahmeed and Takbeer : The Prophet SAW said: "There are no days on which righteous deeds are greater in the sight of Allaah and dearer to Him
than on these ten days. So, intensify Tahleel and Tahmeed."
I pray and hope that you all find these activities a good idea and helpful teaching tools for you families inshaAllah
I pray that Allah SWT gives us all to the taweeq (ability) to benefit from these best 10 days. And also accept all our acts of worship in these day. Ameen
Hajj Mabroor to ALL the Hujjaj inshaAllah.
