Hajj resources for kids

Hajj is fast approaching and once again we need to to explain to the Little Muslims what it’s all about.

There are a few good books out there that will help, and of course there’s YouTube videos of Makkah and Madina, as well as some lovely nasheeds.

Here are some books in our collection, and I hope to add more soon in sha Allah. If you know of any great Hajj books, please do let me know 🙂 – Razeena

Craft it up this Ramadan and Eid

BookCoverImage_1024x1024

Zayneb from ZedandQ is someone I met not too long ago and we immediately found so many interests and passions we had in common! One such passion was a desire to bring great quality products for Muslim kids into existence. I am SO excited to see her dream and hard work come to life. I have watched this project grow and grow, with keen interest, and I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of her book, “Craft it up this Ramadan and Eid”.

It’s always great to hear the background of how and why people do what they do, so I asked her to share with us what made her start this, and of course, details about her book.

Here it is…

As a child growing up, Ramadan and Eid was a very special time for me. As I sit here typing away, I reminisce about the large family iftars, my father’s Qur’an recitation, the morning kisses from loved ones on Eid, and of course, the presents!  Traditionally, a few nights before Eid we would always bake ma’mool and sweets and decorate the garage.

Now, having 1 step daughter and 6 nieces and nephews, the tradition continues. We not only bake sweets and decorate the garage, but also make cards and gifts. These children were the source of my inspiration behind ‘Craft it up this Ramadan and Eid’.

Being passionate about children, Islam and ‘thinking outside the box’, I wanted to create something which helps children understand Islam, in a unique and captivating way. This book is all about inspiring children’s imaginations while having fun seeking Islamic knowledge.

It encourages parents and children to get creative making recyclable crafts such as:  flourishing deeds tree and cookbooks to spectacular gift ideas and Eid decor.  Perfect for children 6 years +, this book provides practical and easy step by step instructions with colourful photos for anyone ready to create the perfect masterpiece!

To help celebrate our launch we have released a new craft on the blog, Alphabet Fishing! A fun and interactive activity which helps children learn the Arabic alphabet. The more hands you have helping you, the quicker it’ll be for you to start fishing.
