Duaa Lessons..finally

Earlier this month I mentioned that we had worked on a lesson for duaa. This was an informal lesson for us where I just read from an article and came up with the activities as we went along.

After the lesson, I put together some ideas for a more formal unit on duaas, but didn’t get around to finishing it.  Recently I teamed up with Umm Abdul Basir to get together Islamic Bulletin Boards and that gave me the motivation to finally finish knocking out the lesson, masha Allah.

So, you can download this 37 page unit (16 mini lessons) here, insha Allah.

Duaas for entering/leaving the home–updated signs

I’ve created some updated versions of the duaas for entering/leaving the house posters.  They’re a little less formal now, the duaas are in house outlines (from a house coloring page)


2 versions of leaving the house duaa (or rather 2 different duaas from Hisnul Muslim)




These are not yet available from the main TJ site (they would have been but I accidentally wrote over the new page) 🙂
