Fruit Plate Of Love

image

My children and I made these fruit plates a while back – We loved putting these together because they were not only yummy and fun to make, but we made them with LOVE.

Fruit plates are a great way to teach your children about a topic you want them to learn about! While my kids and I put together these plates, we discussed what ‘love’ means to them, and how we can express our love through actions of respect and through words of kindness.

You can make a fruit plate with your children by choosing any theme, such as peace, equality, human rights, etc….Not only is this an activity where your children will learn about a certain concept, but it’s also a great bonding experience!

Have a great day filled with Peace & Love everyone 🙂 © The Muslimah Mommy (2014)

How To Raise A Righteous Child

Here is my article I wrote for Muslimmoms.ca on ‘How To Raise A Righteous Child’

“By Sumaira Zaheer

Subhan’Allah, as Muslims, we recite the Adhan into the ears of our children as soon as they are born so that the first words they hear are those of Islam. As our children grow up, it is our duty to educate our children about Islam; but we must do so with so with love and kindness. Our goal should be to teach our children about our religion, in a loving matter, and in a way that will create righteous children. Furthermore, our objective should be to show our children that Islam has all the answers, and within Islam you will find peace. The following are five key tips to keep in mind when bringing up our children as righteous Muslims. Continue reading

The Muslimah Mommy’s Tips For Mothers During Ramadan

image

MAKE DUA:
As Muslimah mothers we all lead busy lives, thus making it difficult to take care of our children and to fulfill all of our Islamic duties; however, although it can be a challenge, it is certainly not impossible. What makes it possible to fulfill all of our duties is the assistance from the one and only Allah (Subḥānahu Wa Ta’Ala), for it is Allah (Subḥānahu Wa Ta’Ala) that gives us mothers Sabr (patience).

“And Your Lord said: Call on Me, I will answer you” Quran 40:60

“Remember Me, and I will remember you, give thanks to Me, and reject Me not” Quran 2:152

SET REALISTIC GOALS:
We have to keep in mind that we all are living different lives from one another under different circumstances. Some of us may be mom’s working full or part-time outside of the house, while some of us are stay at home mom’s taking care of young children or even children with special needs. The number of children we have and their ages vary, as do how much help we have from family and friends. For these very reasons, it is important to never compare yourself with others.

When I say we should never compare ourselves to others, I mean in every aspect; including our Ibadaat during Ramadan. For instance, just because you hear of a sister’s goal to complete the Quran twice during Ramadan, this doesn’t mean that you now have to do the same. Of course, doing so would benefit you and you will get rewarded immensely, however you have to consider your personal situation. Perhaps this sister has older children, or has extra help to take care of the household, while you may have young children with little or no help at all. Continue reading

(Edited on January 2015 for the ‘Love Is’ series)

Love is…seeing your family pray together.

Alhumdulillah for everything! Truly, love is observing your family together in prayer; not only do we all stand together as a family, but we do so in praying to the one and only Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala .
