Summary week 14, Allah gives me sickness and cure

Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi,

Last week we learned about how Allah gives us sickness and cure, something about sickness itself and about how we can take care of ourselves to keep ourselves healthy bifadlillah and what we can use as a cure with the help of Allah.

First they did the workbook on the subject, alhamdulillah. It had a lot of fun activities and they learned what to say when visiting someone who is sick and the dua to be said while in pain (they did not memorize the whole of the dua to be said whilst in pain but you know how kids have small accidents all the time so I guess they`ll be done through practice sooner or later, Allahu alam)

They learned Allahs names al afoow and As shafii

Then we read in our enoclypedia about how the body tries to defend itself from harmful germs e.t.c first the skin blocks out, then white bloodcells chase the germs and eats them (they found that part very interesting) and how the immune system works very hard to locate, destroy the harmful and repare the damage done subhan Allah.

We read the book from Dar ul Kitabs learn about series on the subject of sickness and cure, and that lead us to a nice conversation on how to react when we face difficulties, how to show sabr and the wisdom behind any pain and how we can gain rewards through it. Subhan Allah, sometimes I wish I had a book like that on every subject.., its just so clear and nice explained, and authentic of course. I think the sisters who also are blessed to have these books on their shelves knows what Im talking about.

We talked about some of the cures we know of from the prophet sallahu aleihi wa salam and I asked them what we can use and masha Allah they mentioned black seed, honey and zam zam water. They are used to these treatments from experience alhamdulillah.

We talked about how to take care of our body and prevent ourselves against disease with Allahs help, like: dressing warm when its cold, to wash our hands- how and when and eating healthy foods. These are things we always say to them (like: "put your jacket back on", "did you wash your hands?"), but now they understood more of why. Adam colored this sheet on situations were we should wash our hands.

And Roqaya colored this one about how to wash hands properly.

I learned something from one of the links I read preparing for this subject, about not using the same towel after hand washing, because the towel spreads germs from person to person. We always used to have one towel by the sink for handwashing and separate for wudhu/baths somewhere else, so then I bought some simple towel knots for a nice price and printet out our names and had the kids color them and now we all have our own towel for handwashing alhamdulillah.

Also we learned about good germs, and these print outs on handwashing and germs I got from here, and we put them at our weekly board together with the dua for when in pain and we discuss it from time to time.

They traced this (english: sickness, health, germ, sabr)

Roqaya did these worksheets

*picture removed*

Adam did these, suddenly all he wants to do is tracing, subhan Allah,

We started up with aqeeda again, alhamdulillah, I had prepared some easy review questions to help breaking it down to their level of understanding. That seemed to work out fine, alhamdulillah.

We continued with surah al masad regarding Quran but we did not finish it yet.

We did MEP maths together, chapter, needed to draw a bit extra for them to fully understand some of the questions- that was Abu Adams contribution masha Allah and they understood it.

They also did other match activities with Abu Adam with drawing dots in two circles and then adding their numbers, here is Adam by himself making and counting dots

We went on with madina arabic and finished lesson 1 containg dalika, man dalika and ma dalika. They picked it up very quick both of them, masha Allah.

We did read from the Read book (learning roots) some evenings and Im looking forward to use this book further on insha Allah.

As Salaamu Alaikum

Mashaa'Allaah! Very nice. I think that having your husband participate in the homeschooling is nice Mashaa'Allaah. I think Muslim households are so much different from Non-Muslim households- I just like reading about everyone's family helping each other out- *sighs* well great post Baraka'Allaahu'Feekum for sharing your homeschool experience with everyone to benefit from

Jazak Allah khair for your comment sister. Yes, I find it very nice that the husbands engage themselves in our work and in their childrens development, my kids loves to keep their done work ready to show their father when he arrives and to do activities with him :)I really like to read when the husbands are helping out and contributing, like Abu Suhailas words on f.ex home birth was great!
