For a long time now I've brainstormed for ideas on how to accurately teach my boys islamic studies. Yes there are many books out there, resources, we have the internet etc. but my own knowledge is limited and I prefer to take it very slowly, knowing with certainty that whatever goes into these precious memories of my boys is the truth !!
A dear sister in Islam gave me a great idea on how to make dua's with the boys. Insha'Allah by the will of Allah subhanahu wa t'ala we will be able to do it on a daily basis. We sit in a circle after having read some hadith of our dear Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him) having the globe in our midst. We then look at the continents and make a short dua (prayer) for each continent. And some specific dua's for the countries that are going through calamities. May Allah (the all High the Most Forgiving) accept our dua's.
