Dawah and Workshop at M-Kids Association

M-Kids Association invited Maison Dawah to an “Atelier des Enfants” on Saturday, November 26, 2022, in a villa in Pereybere. We responded positively, with four colleagues attending the event. We invited the 7-year-old daughter of one of our beneficiaries to accompany us because we thought she would enjoy meeting new children and learning from the talks.

The following topics were addressed by the staff of Maison Dawah:

♢ About Maison Dawah itself and an introduction to Islam, which includes the Oneness of Allah, the fact that Islam is perfect while Muslims are not, and the fact that Jesus is the son of Maryam (virgin Mary) and a prophet of Allah (swt).

♢ The significance and value of Islamic greetings, which include the rewards (Hassanah) we receive when we say ‘Assalamu’alaikum,’ ‘Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullah,’ and ‘Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

♢ Lessons from Prophet Ibrahim’s (a.s) life [Qurbani] that includes:

– The birth of Ismail (a.s) at a time when his father was above 80 years old.

– Ibrahim (a.s) leaving Ismail (a.s) and his mother Hajar alone in the desert.

– Hajar running between the hills of safa and marwa in search of help and water.

– The reconstruction of the holy Ka’bah and prophet Ibrahim (a.s) obeying the command of Allah (swt) and on the point of sacrificing his beloved son Ismail (a.s).

♢ Importance of water in Islam where it was explained that all living things require water to live. It is Allah’s bounty that we have this vital means of sustenance for which we should be very grateful.

The room was filled with around 16 children alongside two adults from M-Kids. They followed attentively as the hosts presented their respective topics using engaging PowerPoints.

Maison Dawah puts great emphasis on the education of youngsters, especially so as we are required by Islam to “𝐀𝐜𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐢𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞.” – 𝐀𝐭-𝐓𝐢𝐫𝐦𝐢𝐝𝐡𝐢, 𝟏𝟎𝟕.
