We seriously love these Arabic magnets. During these days of learning about Bibi Fatemah (SA), we used these magnets to build her name and some of her titles. We talked about how she was a kind and generous lady, and that she had many titles to describe her. We remembered our discussion about the Ahlul … Continue reading Titles of Bibi Fatemah (SA)
Standing Up for Fadak
After the death of the Holy Prophet (SAW), Bibi Fatemah (SA) had to make a stand against the oppressors. She did not hesitate to stand for her rights. She was strong and truthful, and stood up for what she knew was right. To illustrate this, I was inspired by Islam from the Start’s post about … Continue reading Standing Up for Fadak
At the beginning of programs that we attend, we often hear Hadith-e-Kisa (The Story of the Cloak). But for our kids, if they’ve only ever heard this story in Arabic, then they have no idea what they are listening to. As we remember Bibi Fatemah Zahra (SA) during the days of her shahadat and her … Continue reading Hadith-e-Kisa
Generosity with Food!
Imam Hassan (AS) is another extraordinary example of generosity for us. In fact, it is said that our 2nd Imam (AS) gave his entire wealth as charity and started over TWICE. Imam Hassan (AS) ran a guest house in which he would serve food to the hungry. Go HERE (page 8.37) to read the story. … Continue reading Generosity with Food!
What’s in a Name?
I have a weird name. Well, that’s not true. My name is probably the most common female Muslim name – Fatema. But growing up in a majority non-Muslim country, I learned to answer to various mispronunciations of my name. After high school, I decided to start telling people how to correctly pronounce my name when … Continue reading What’s in a Name?

Surah Kawthar – Maze
We are continuing our focus on Bibi Fatemah Zahra (SA) today, with a maze. We love mazes! Especially putting them in a clear pocket so they can be used over and over and over (and over!) again with dry erase crayons/markers. The enemies of Islam used to make fun of the Prophet (SAW) for having … Continue reading Surah Kawthar – Maze

Hijrat to Madinah – Spider Web
On Rabiul Awwal 1, the Holy Prophet (SAW) left Makkah to migrate to Madinah to escape persecution by the disbelievers in Makkah. After he left Makkah, he knew that the Quraish would be tracking him. In order to avoid being found, he took refuge in the cave of Thaur, on the way to Madinah. When … Continue reading Hijrat to Madinah – Spider Web
