Peace be Upon you Friends !
This week’s topic is the Human Body, a blessing and a gift from Allah. Children should learn the importance of their senses and their body parts. We as humans have learned to be empathetic towards a blind person or a person with a disability because we understand what life must be like for them. We can only appreciate our blessings in their absence. So play the “Senses game”. Pick a day to learn about one sense. Blindfold your child and be around them for safety. Ask them to try to walk or eat. Ask them why it was difficult. Next day, plug their ears, tie their hands or feet to prevent them from using those senses and ask them, will they be able to function in this world without these senses? We must teach them to respect their bodies and know that even these senses will speak out against us if we misuse them.

- Fold the pieces of the card, so the printed part is inside
- Write a note from yourself on the outside.
Encourage your children, to remember the Ayah and the Surah it came from. When they come home, they can look it up in the Quran and see it for themselves. You could try to make them memorize the Ayah in Arabic and then have a small discussion about it. At the end of the week, you could quiz them as well. Collect all the notes and you can make it into a small booklet for them to go over in time.
