Allah reduced the amount by 10.
Actor 2 add the crossed out 50 and then after audience answer add the 40
Actor 5 to hold up the 40 sign
How much does that make? Ask the audience…. 40!
Actor 6 and Actor 5 to meet again
Nabi Musa again advised Rasullulah to ask for a reduction. The ummah would not pray all those salaat in one day. Again Rasullulah asked Allah for a reduction. Salaats were reduced by 10.
Actor 2 remove the 40 and put the crossed out 40 and after audience answer add the 30
How much does that make?…. Ask the audience …. 30
Actor 5 to hold up 30. Actor 6 talk to Actor 5
Again Nabi Musa advised Rasullulah to ask for a reduction. He got another 10 reduction.How much does that make?…..20
Actor 2 remove the 30 and add the crossed out 30,then after audience answer add the 20
Right! Still too much thought Nabi Musa. Again RAsullulah asked for a reduction.
Actor 2 remove the 20 and add the crossed out 20 and then audience answer and add the 10
Salaats were down to 10 salaats.
Still Nabi Musa Advised Rasulllah to ask for a reduction.
Actor 2 remove10 add the crossed out 10and then add the 5
When it was down to 5 salaats. Rasullulah was too embarrassed to go back and ask for any more reduction in salaat. He would be patient. Actor 5 to hold sign of I am a sabir together we are sabireen
Allah said, He loved patience and because of this patience, He would make each salaat value at 50 salaats.
Lets count now. If I pray 5 salaat each day. What’s the total value of salaat if each is worth 50 salaat? …… 250
Actor 2 add the multiplication of 5x 50 = 250
Rasullulah then returned from the aakhirah having seen the place for all the Mr guideds and all the mr whoopsies. and getting the gift of Salaat for us all.
On his return from this busy one night journey. He met a caravan from the Quraysh.
Actor 2 add caravan ofQuraysh searching for camel
Actor 5 on stage meeting the Caravan. All free mualims come as Arabs and give Rasulullah water to drink
They were busy looking for their lost camel. He asked them for some water to drink.
When he returned, Rasullulah told the people about his journey to the heavens, meraj. He told them everything that he saw.
Actor 5 talking to Quraysh and Arab people. Actor 6 is the Quraysh
He gave them the super star rating of Heaven and how to get there. He told them about the mr. whoopsie place and what to avoid doing so as not to land there.
Actor 2 to point to heaven and hell here when I narrate
He then told them about the caravan and the lost camel and asked them for some water.
Add the Quraysh people image talking to Rasullulah
The Quraysh did not believe a word Rasullulah said. Actor 6 act like deny what Actor 5 saying . However, just at sunrise, the caravan entered Mecca and told them all about Rasullulah’s visit, the lost camel and Rasullulah asking for some water.
Mualims of the caravan – come back and tell Actor 6 and Rasulullah all about what happened. Acting only
Just like the Quran knows the future, Rasullulah, the talking walking Quran knows the future too. He’s even seen it.
Everyone leave. Actor 5 leave last
Now I get it, Maryam. Rasullulah has seen where we can live forever depending on our deeds and he wants us all to go to the place we are meant for. That’s why he keeps on guiding and warning us.
Absolutely Khalil. Absolutely. He’s Sadiq and Amin, Truthful and trustworthy. He only tells us what is true!
I want to go there and smell the musk and feel the breeze and drink from the Kawther and play in the best water slide park and eat the yummiest food.
Actor 2 and Actor 1 standing here talking
You absolutely can, Khalil. It’s all there for free waiting for you. All you gotta do is believe in Allah and do good deeds. No yucky ones. Just good deeds.
And now we know the bestest deed which Rasullulah brought for us from the me’raj.
Rasullulah has given us the true rating of the most wonderful place ever.
Just then, Dad’s phone began to make the call for salaat.
Actor 4 to come onstage with adhan playing on phone
Maryam lets go get our tickets for the better than 5 star rated place ever! Lets go PRayyyyyyyy!
Family pray together!
Actor 1 Actor 2 Actor 3 Actor 4 pray family salaat while I narrate the rest
Irjie illa rabiki raddhiyatan mardhiya Fadkulii fee ibadi
Return to your Lord, well pleased with Him, well pleasing Him.
So enter among My servants
Enter into my garden.
Do you want to go to the super star rated place where you belong? ……..
Do you want to go to Jannah?????
Actor 2 and Actor 1 to ask together to audience after I share the ayats above and you have completed one rakaat
Actor 4, Actor 6, Actor 5
Purple can centre the whole stations around salaat.
Ask the children to position themselves in a way that displays the following. Let all children come up with their own pose for each. Look at the pose and after each pose look at how closely they resemble a position from salaat.
- I don’t own anything at all. I have nothing
Let all children do and then look at the resemblance to Takbir where we say Allah is the Greatest. In this position we can see that we have our hands up showing we own nothing and the one who is asking us to raise our hands owns all the power.
Do we own anything? Does Allah own everything? How so? Discuss allowing the children to bring their views and discuss.
- Please help me
Look at the different positions that the children come up with and ask them why they chose this position. Let them see each other’s point of view. When we ask Allah in salaat, we raise our begging bowls.- Hands in Qunoot. In this position, you get the feeling that this person is needy and is asking. That means, we don’t have, hence asking. We don’t have the means, hence asking. Isn’t asking Allah asking the one who can give ?
Does He give? Yes /No discuss
- Nothing but you. I am completely at your mercy.
Again let the children come up with the position that best describes this. Then talk about Sajda and why Allah chose this position to be the one in which we are closest to Him. We can’t even look at our phones in a Sajda.
- Looking respectfully
When we look down, it is a form of respect. In Salaat we look down. The whole salaat speaks about our obedience and respect to Allah
Now let’s look at a couple of things we say in salaat to get a presence of it all.
Here we say, with your help I stand and I sit.
Do we think about thanking Allah while we sit and stand. Isn’t it His Mercy reaching us so beautifully that helps us stand and sit.
Think of all the things we do where we need to sit and stand. Act them out.
What bones, what are the mechanics of standing and sitting. Could we stand and sit without the help of Allah?
What would life be like without the ability to stand and sit.
Talk about intention and how our parents wake us to pray and how do they feel about this
Talk about Allah and all that He daily bestows upon us and our basic obedience in doing one thing He has asked us knowing fully well it’s for our own good.
He says pray one reward 50. Buy 1 get 50 free. That’s a mighty bonus.
Rasullulah asked to be like the angels he saw in heaven. Angels are lower in rank to us because they obey Allah 24/7
Can we do that? Why Why not? Do we want to?
Purple group can look at meaning of Surah Fatiha and Surah Ikhlas
Actor 6, Actor 2,
Climbing station. In this station we want the children to get a feel of what it’s like to climb up a ladder. Once they do, and it’s challenging we get to the top without lots of difficulty and once up top, we realize it’s the wrong ladder. Do we want to be in that position. ?
For younger children, they can get a feel for climbing a ladder and the joy when you get to the top. Me’raj comes from a’raj which means to ascend. Ladder.
Our beliefs and deeds make us climb higher and higher and reaching Allah’s pleasure and jannah will be the peak of ascent any human can achieve.
For homework, children get to select a building or a hill to climb in the desert hatta al ain or locally. When you get to the top, the last thing you would want to be told is that you climbed up the wrong mountain hill building.
Lets not live our lives climbing up the wrong ladder.
The hub dunia ladder is always available but does not really take you to the top we are talking about.
Purple groups can get to help put something up. If we get a student to climb up only to be told, you are a little off in terms of distance, you have to come down and place the ladder in the right place and then start right from the bottom. This is not going to be available in the next world. So let’s get it right from now.
Let’s say how we dress. It’s a ladder to climb. Climbing the right ladder is dressing in a way that reaches the aakhirah as sound and blessed. Not dressing correctly serves as a wrong ladder.
Apply to other things that the students might be going through.
The younger children can then get to do a ladder activity to design a ladder and themselves right there at the top.
Purple students can also do the next lesson in Quran hero.
A conversation can also be hand with reference to school and how we want to climb up the learning ladder. We strive. Same way, our deen strives up the right ladder.
