  1. Assalamu ‘Alaykoum, sis,

    Ma shaa ALLAH, beautiful article!! I’m gonna try this with my siblings and see if they’re gonna become more attached to Islam when having fun.

    JazakALLAHOU Khayr!!! <3

  2. SubhanAllah, loved this article!! With pre teen girls I am always looking for ideas to entertain them and their friends. I also love the Goodword Kids Board Games. It is hours of fun and everyone learns in a fun way. Keep up the good work in shaa Allah Ameen

  3. Salam sister Sana, i am really touched when i read this article bEcauSe you have succesfully Managed To adopt Islamic lifestyle in places that I never ever imagine possible ie our own children’s birthday party. I always Rather resort to secular ways of celebrating birthdays, waauzubillah, your article make me start thinking to actually be serious in adopting Islamic lifestyle according to the alquran and sunnah. Mabrook sister sana, may Allah continue to give you the inspiration to write more articles of these sort.

  4. JazakAllah Khair for these amazing suggestions. I am thinking of doing an Eid party for the kids and these are incredibly useful. Masha Allah. May Allah (swt) reward you for the inspirations..and inspire you further..ameen

  5. Jak for your wonderful article! I am having my yearly ramadan playdate again this year as I run a moms group and they just love these wvents during ramadan and I will definitely use some of these ideas for it! Jak again sister!

  6. “For example, Asiya raḍyAllāhu ‘anha (may Allāh be pleased with her) was a firm believer and Mariam raḍyAllāhu ‘anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) was chaste. As such, the girls can focus on adopting Islamic clothing. Meanwhile Fatima raḍyAllāhu ‘anha (may Allāh be pleased with her) used to like her house work and Khadija raḍyAllāhu ‘anha (may Allāh be pleased with her) loved helping others.”

    Although these are lovely examples, i think that the fact that you have focused on the subdued and homely nature of the mentioned women is problematic.
    Fatima RA struggles with the sheer load of work she had to do, as mentioned in the hadith. Khadija RA is known more for being an amazing, successful and strong businesswoman than she is for anything else.
    We should not shy away from the strength of the women mentioned. They were vocal, strong and independent mashallah. And THIS is what we should be teaching our daughters!
