And i am glad that they heard it, most of them probably for the first time, without the tainted filter of the media. I wished everyone in America could hear the beautiful Takbir through innocent ears and hearts such as these children. At the mosque all the muslims give some charity type to help others who are in need. And then they pray together. (Here you place the prayer mats on the floor) After the prayer we pdf hug the person next to us and say eid mubarak then its time to go home, open gifts and eat some yummy food.

Turns out, for her presentations she had enlisted the help of a cool mom she knew and with all this combined cool mom-ness I felt well equipped to start! And here if youd like to read about it, is how we talked to a class of 4-6 year olds about Eid-ul Adha : First of all, make your intention. I made the intention, that in these blessed first 10 days of dul hajj we would be doing this so that these young children would learn something good and positive about Muslims. That from a very early age, we would somehow impact their perception of a muslim family celebrating a beloved festival, that we would impart some of the joy and love in our faith and share it with them. Secondly ; do a little planning and keep it simple. Wear a great sparkly outfit fit for any Eid party!

To smell : Attar, a kind of oil based perfume. For the children, we chose a delicious fruity smelling one. They could smell it and even roll on to their wrists and clothes if they liked to taste/For food : dates and pineapple lollipops literally pineapple cut into discs with a pineapple corer (or use any shape/cookie cutter) and stick on the end. A handout : A simple printed explanation, mounted on colorful paper for them to take home and share with caregivers.

The school would not allow any cooked or baked goods nor any sweets or chocolate. Basically anything with a list of ingredients. But we addressed that point when we came. Here i was about to do this for the first time. I professional definitely wanted to be a cool mom and not let him down so i enlisted the help of a cool mom i already knew reviews (but hadnt met yet!) : aiysha! I knew she had done this before. Tell me everything, i implored.
I thought of my mother, who had recently enrolled in English classes, and my father, a busy junior doctor could not have left work to do this with. They bought us up in a different time with different challenges and we work are bringing up our children in a different time with completely different challenges. No i was not judging their parenting, i was comparing the child in me and the child in front. I wanted to know if he was proud of his festival? If he was proud of himself. Mama and can we take goodie bags and mama can we give cupcakes and and mama are you going to come into my class? And talk to my friends? These last two questions were said with such awe and excitement at the prospect, that it made me want to cry! It turned out the answers to all his questions were yes except for the cupcake part.
love. Yes they know the stories behind both Eids and especially this one as my son, whose name is Ismail calls. Prophet Ibrahim and Prophet Ismail Eid (not without a good dose of pride at the importance of his namesake!) But was he willing to talk about it with his friends at school who are all non-muslim? Was he willing to tell them this special story that he holds so dear, about a man and his son who built a structure that billions of Muslims turn toward in unity to pray five times a day? I remembered back to my own 6 year old self, who would have been at a loss and completely unconfident to talk about Eid and its meaning to my class.
I have written before, a little bit about how my childhood Eids used. Needless to say growing up in the mid 90s in a predominantly white and conservative area of Britain, meant that I had few Muslim friends in high school (there were two owl other muslim girls in my grammar school in a sea of 800). In primary school I had none, and having myself arrived in England as a 6 year old, i was trying to figure out my immigrant identity. One thing I remember feeling about myself all those years ago embarrassed. I am not proud to admit it, but its true, i was embarrassed about being different. It took me a few years before i was confident enough to say i dont celebrate christmas i celebrate eid or that I was fasting due to ramadan and had not forgotten my lunch. When my friends asked what is Eid? I would inevitably say.

You have a festival coming up dont you? Around one year ago, this is what my sons teacher said to me as I was collecting him from school in his second week at a new school in a new city. I was pleasantly surprised she had some inkling of the eid that was indeed coming up in a few days time and father's of course i replied in the affirmative. We love to hear about different celebrations in our class would you like to come in and talk about it? I told her that it was very nice of her to remember and to invite me, but that I would have to talk to my son about it before i could commit. The holidays of Eid-ul-fitr and Eid-ul-adha are officially recognised as public school holidays in New York city and in the city of Cambridge in Boston Mass. So may be i shouldnt have been surprised that a teacher knew about Eid, in fact I should have expected. The fact that Eid is visible on some public school calendars is no small feat. It would have seemed impossible in my own childhood.
