Correction to Dhul Hijjah Lapbook Kit

When going over the 2008 Dhul Hijjah lapbook with my kids today, I noticed a typo that I had not caught in previous years.


The word “Tahmeed” was incorrectly typed as “Tamheed” in a few places.

Tahmeed is the saying of “alhamdulillah.” (For those new to Arabic, I underlined the root letters in both words so that the correlation can be seen.) The same root letters are found in each word haa-meem-daal, both come from the root for “to praise—haa-mi-da)

I apologize for the error and I will try to amend it on an updated copy of the kit this season, insha Allah.

Hajj Goodies II

kabahOk, my ever creative bud, Umm Abdul Basir (remember the name, remember her  blog if you are looking for crafty, arty ways to bring Islam to your kids, masha Allah) has whipped up some hajj goodies (and I mean GOODIES) and she’s not done yet, insha Allah.

So get movin’ cuz the time’s drawing near:

1. Islamic Bulletin Boards – a wonderful Hajj bulletin board for your wall.  Colorful border, awesome Hajj map and more.  I did make a small contribution to this project, but by and large, the work is hers.  Thank you Umm Abdul Basir!


2. Hajj mini books. Over at her blog, Umm Abdul Basir’s got ‘ABCs of Hajj” and “Colors of Hajj” books and more “goodies” (the use of that keyword so much in this post ought to make my blog entry come up first in Google search for ‘goodies’, lol) in the works, insha Allah.


Happy Hajj Learning!

Hajj Goodies

kabahAbout the most we tend to get around to at this time of the year is reading about the Virtues of Dhul Hijjah.  The last time we formally did something on Hajj itself was like the first year that I started homeschooling.

We had gotten a large roll of newspaper from a local newspaper company (in case you aren’t “hip,” newspaper companies cannot use the last bit on the roll, so many just give it away.  And really, its quite a bit for our purposes.

With the roll, (which is super wide), we made a humongous hajj map.   I had found an excellent book from the library (sniff sniff, haven’t been to a library in over 7 years) and we based our map upon what we read in it and the pictures in it.

We also did a little mock  hajj (my oldest was 5 at the time) and it was so cute.


Well, this year, we’ll do my Dhul Hijjah lapbook starter kit, insha Allah and I found a nice little lesson on Hajj that I found that I plan on reading to the kids.

So I don’t have any new goodies this year ,


My bud Umm Abdul Basir is working on some AWESOME stuff. Its not available online as of this writing (she’s busy putting on her finishing touches).  But you CANNOT miss it, so I’d thought I’d direct you over to her blog (in case you are not already a frequent visitor). Here’s her hajj tag, so you can keep checking back this week.

And believe me, you’ll want to, masha Allah as she has shared with me what she already has and its truly wonderful, masha Allah. Among the items are a bulletin board display (which will be listed at Islamic Bulletin Boards, insha Allah), little tot books (like mini lapbooks) and lapbook items.

Visit Umm Abdul Basir’s Hajj tag and stay tuned, insha Allah.

(Plus, she’s done a little spiffing up at her blog as well, so take a look around if you aren’t already familiar with it/her work).
