[‘Eid Craft] Stained Glass Craft

I’m thinking about doing this. I’ll have to make a few changes to the sister’s original instructions.

For instance, I plan to use sheet protectors instead of overhead transparency film.

And I’ll have to replace the cellophane paper with colorful tissue paper.

I’ll post pics once I’m done insha’Allah.

In the meantime, have fun with this great craft idea!

[‘Eid Craft] Printable Old Fashioned Banner

I really love the look of this wedding banner by Martha Stewart. It is so cute.

This would look great with the word “Eid” spelled out.

Each character has a different border, “a whimsical take on the old-fashioned look of vintage typewriter keys.”

[Printable] Supplication During the Night of Decree

In the last ten nights of Ramadhan, and during the odd nights of it even more so, it is recommended that one say the following supplication a lot:

Allahumma innaka `afuwwun tuhibbul `afwa fa`fu `annee
O Allah! Verily, you are the Oft-Pardoning, You love to pardon, so pardon me.

This is due to what Imam Ahmad recorded from Aishah that she said “O Messenger of Allah! If I find the Night of Al-Qadr what should I say?” He (saws) replied,

Say : “O Allah! Verily You are the Oft-Pardoning, You love to pardon, so pardon me.”
[Ahmad 6:182]

Print out the Laylatul Qadr supplication (pdf). Refer to it as you need to .

———————-

At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasai and Ibn Majah have all recorded this Hadith . At-Tirmdhi said “This Hadith is Hasan Sahih” . [Tahfat Al-Ahwadhi 9:495, An-Nasai in Al-Kurba 6:218, and Ibn Majah 2:1265]

Al-Hakim recorded it in his Mustadrak (with a different chain of narration) and he said that it is authentic according to the criterial of the two Shaykhs (Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

[Al-Hakim 1:530] An Nasai also recorded it. [An-Nasai in Al-Kubra 6:219]

[Craft] Paper Fanoos (Lantern)

The Muslim website SmartArk has a template for a paper lantern. You can print it here: Stars and Moon Lantern (pdf). This seems like an easy and fun lantern to make with the kids.

The template comes pre-printed with stars and moons to color in. However, I’m thinking to print it out on colored paper and decorate the blank side!  That would be great for kids who have outgrown the star/moon design.

I learned about this lantern from Muslim Learning Garden.
