IECRC Bahrain Picnic 2015

IECRC Bahrain Picnic 2015

IECRC Bahrain conducts children’s classes on the first Saturday of each month.

After the completion of our 2nd annual year, we planned our first outing with both children and moms together. IECRC’S 1st annual children’s picnic spot was the “PRINCE SHAIKH KHALIFA BIN SALMAN PARK” famously known as “HIDD PARK” in the beautiful Kingdom of Bahrain. The day was Saturday 21st November, 2015.

With lots of preparations done by our dear aunties Zareen aunty (Chief Picnic Organizer) and Shagufta aunty and our dear aapis Sadiya aapi, Aysha aapi and Asha aapi, a perfect picnic was planned. All the snack and food items were pre-confirmed and a proper schedule and rules list were made by our aapis and few surprise fun activities were also planned in advance. Shagufta ammi showed us how to have fun but also not forget our religious duties.

We began our day with a surprise learning but fun activity. This activity was to find out prayer timings with the help of the sun. In this method we know prayer times by seeing the length of our shadow. So we had to see the length every 10 minutes. After this activity we played throw ball which was great fun and read Dhuhar Namaz followed by dua.

After Namaz there was a snack session. There were varieties of food, Alhamdulillah!!! We all ate our snacks. Later there was a parent teachers meeting. While the meeting was going on, all children were playing on their own. The meeting nearly took half an hour to complete. After the meeting there was a game arranged by Sadiya aapi. The game was ’20 questions’. This game was played as groups and it was a funny and interesting game. The thing which was most interesting in this game was guessing what’s in a person’s mind?? After this game, there was another game called ‘Charades’. This game was like ‘Dumsharaz’ but we had to enact an unknown word. The unique thing about all these games was that the words being used were all related to Islam. So while we had fun with familiar games, by using Islamic terms, we converted them to Islamic games!

After the game was over, we did our activity of determining Namaz time by our shadow. And yes! It was Asr now. We all read Namaz and had our lunch. Everyone shared and enjoyed the food. Lunch was yummy Biryani. The best part of the picnic was after lunch. A game called ‘Zombies’ was set. This game made all kids and elders run simultaneously and it was great fun. After this game there was another game called ‘Help!Help!’ which was also very enjoyable. All of us had a great time!

At the end of the day, as good Muslims we made sure the green park wasn’t dirty. We all cleaned whatever mess was made. Later we all were ready to leave. We left at Maghrib and few people left after Maghrib Namaz.  This wonderful day cheered us all. We had a great memorable time together. Insha Allah looking forward to go to IECRC’s picnic again next year!

I want to thank on behalf of all children our dear Shagufta ammi, Zareen aunty, all other aunties, Sadiya aapi, Aysha aapi, Asha aapi for organizing this wonderful picnic event. Below are some pictures from our picnic:

Kindness

with 3 comments

Nahmaduhu wa Nusalli wa nusallimu alaa Rasoolihil Kareem

 

A’oodhu Billaahi Minashaitaanir Rajeem Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.
As Salaamu ‘Alai Kum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa barakaatuhu!

 

Today I am going to share my view about Kindness.

 

In today’s world we find very few people having kindness, but when we see the past we find that all Nabis, Sahabas, Tabi’een, Tabi Tabi’een and Awliya e Kiraam were very kind and generous. They spent their whole life doing Ibadat, preaching Islam and doing khidmat of Allah’s creation.

 

“Kindness is one part of Khidmat.”

 

There are four easy steps you can practise to develop Kindness.

 

1. When you talk to a person, talk to them kindly even if they are your friend or enemy.
2. When you try to explain to your brother, sister, or friend when they are doing something wrong, try to explain to them kindly, not just yell at them.
3. We should be kind to poor people by giving them even 100 fils, not just pretend like we didn’t see them and walk away. In India people think that the beggars are just pretending to be poor. But we should not bother that they are really poor or pretending, instead we should give something to them with correct niyyah.
4. We should be kind to animals, birds and plants .We should not hit them with stones, slippers and sticks. We should just scare them away. They are actually scared of us and want to protect themselves and their babies. We should not pluck flowers or leaves even though they look pretty, nice or smell good. As there is a ‘heart’ in each one of them. Allah has given all the plants, animals and birds a heart and it hurts them deeply.

 

So these were the few easy steps that we can try to develop so that we can be kind and generous as our scholars.

 

Jazak Allah Khayr!

The Foundation was laid with the blessed soil from the holy lands of Makkatul Mukarramah and Madinatul Munawwarah.
