Daily Hijri Practice Worksheet 2

Daily worksheet to practice writing hijri calendar concepts (name of yesterday, today tomorrow, this month, next month, last month, etc)- 5 entries per page.

Daily Hijri Calendar Skill Building Worksheet

Trying to get back up on our daily hijri calendar review and thought I'd repost (from the TJ Companion blog) a skill building worksheet I had made up a couple of years ago.


Daily Hijri Calendar Skill Building Worksheet (PDF)

The sheet is all in Arabic but I made a teacher reference chart of the terms if you are unfamiliar with them.
On a sheet each day, student writes things such as the current date, day of the week, yesterday, tomorrow, the current season, the previous season, the next season, the current month, the previous month, and this month. In shaa Allah I am working on a version where I can fit in maybe 5 of these "drills," if possible, on one page to conserve paper ;)

Prayer Milestones Tracker

Use it as a progress chart as new parts of salaat are learned or use as a review sheet.

Exchanging Greetings and Well-Wishes for the New Year

I was sure it wasn't from the Sunnah to greet/well wish for the new year, but I did not know how to respond so this was beneficial.

via Salaf-us-Saalih.com
http://salaf-us-saalih.com/2011/01/01/exchanging-greetings-and-well-wishes-for-the-new-year/

Question: Is it permissible for a person to initiate the well-wishing for the new year to someone?

Response: If someone wished you well, then return the greeting to him, but don’t you be the one to initiate the well wishing to anyone – this is the correct position in this matter.

If for example someone said to you ‘we wish you well for this new year’, you should say “may Allaah greet you with good and may He make it a year [filled with] good and blessings”, however, don’t you initiate [the well-wishing] to the people. [This is] because I do not know anything from the Salaf that they used to greet [the people] with well-wishes for the new year. Rather, know that the Salaf did not adopt Muharram as the beginning of the new year until the caliphate of ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhu).

(In the above link from salafitalk.net was an interesting post that looked at some kufaar traditions around the world for ringing in the new year. I thought this would make a great discussion on shirk as well.)




Congratulations on the new year or the occasion of Mawlid

The first question of Fatwa no. 20795
Q 1: Is it permissible to congratulate non-Muslims on the occasion of the new Gregorian year, the new Hijri (lunar) year, and the Mawlid (the Prophet’s birthday)?
A: It is not permissible to offer congratulations on such occasions; for it is not Mashru‘ (Islamically permissible) to celebrate them.
May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!

Tashahhud (The First One) Student Guide

We are getting ready to review the Tashahhud, in shaa Allah, and so I thought I would try to start giving the Prophet's Prayer Described lessons an overhaul. This is the first overhauled one. I will probably do a little tweaking as we go through this unit, but I hope it will be helpful as it is for now.


Unit 19-Tashahhud (The First One) Student Guide

This one has more focus on memorization and vocabulary as well as a little Arabic grammar.

Prophet's Prayer Described Lessons



This is the original set of lessons I made back in 2006.  With the latest web move here to Blogspot, I never got around to categorizing these very well, so I think they were hard to find...so I'm reposting them.

You will need a copy of the "Prophet's Prayer Described" to use the lessons. Please check the Prophet's Prayer Described category for links to digital copies of this book if you don't have a physical copy.

Set of 23 lessons (zip format) 

This is a zip file so you will need an unzip utility such as WinRar, JZip, or WinZip to unzip the file; then they are PDF files.

Square Root and Perfect Square Flashcards

I looked online the other day and couldn't find a nice PDF or even word file of square root/perfect square flashcards to print for my son, so I made some up.
This is a set 36 flashcards. It includes a set of 15 perfect square flashcards, 15 square root flashcards, and six concept cards. After cutting out, student should write the answers on the back of the card. (There is a little perfect square chart to help in that as well as sample answers to the concept cards----I didn't put the answers as it was a) time consuming and b) provided more practice for the student
Hope you find them handy!
Download Perfect Square/Square Root Flashcards

For younger students, I have a Perfect Square/Square Root Activity Pack that not only includes the flashcards and progress chart, but also two matching activities.
