Allah sent him to do the same thing that Allah did to the Kaaba, be a jacket and protect. Actor 5 to come on and scroll to fall from backdrop
Thank you Allah, Al Hafeedh, our Protector. Luqman beta, Jackets protect and preserve. Your jacket protects you in the wind and the cold just like Rasullulah’s guidance protects us in our life and life after. Now, you understand why we wear jackets.
Ya betcha mum! I am gonna find my jacket and wear it everytime we go walking and I’m also going to wear my Rasulullah jacket! Which means I’m guided by the Quran and the AhlulBayt.
Allah says in the Quran: Fallahu khayran hafedhan wa huwa arhamar rahemeen.
Allah is the best Protector and He is the Super Kind and Super Merciful.
Immediately get into rhyme mode.
One by one come out wearing jackets from my own start up thing
Science and Art of Expression
Begin with the science experiment to illustrate the protection.
Get a jug of water. 2 kitchen towels.
One is placed into the water and it comes out all wet and soggy.
The next one is you. You have chosen to live your life protected by Allah just like the Kaaba. You are a sign of belief and good deeds just like the Kaaba. This means you have the Hafeedh protection of Allah, Rasullulah and Quran. You are guided and protected.
Place the kitchen towel that is you into a glass and push to the bottom. It should not fall out.
Now submerge the glass into the water upside down and hold it down. Then take it out and show the children how the kitchen towel is not wet soggy and destroyed because it chose protection as opposed to no protection.
Discuss the two.
Discuss choices in life, at school and what the protection does for us. How it does and why we choose it.
Have a fun fashion show down the stage wearing an array of jackets. When they put it on they say Al Hafeedh. When they get to the end of the cat walk they describe their jacket in physical and then they describe their spiritual jacket, what it does, why they chose it. Or get a bunch of things and children get to touch and feel and be able to think and tell what things are for and how connected to protection and exercise.
Sunglasses, Jacket of a book, My water bottle keeps my water cold from its inner jacket of steel, kitchen jars keep food safe from insects – like jackets, socks protect feet, goggles protect eyes in swimming, pen with its lid, cream protects skin- children can put some on here, wisdom, knowledge, discuss how they protect, libas ut taqwa, Husayni coat discussion, bring the drawings kids made, friends are jackets,
The younger kids get to enjoy trying on different jackets and why those professions use them. We talk about the different kinds of protection they give. Connect to Al Hafeedh and how they all wear the Spiritual Jacket too.
Connect to the story and how Abraha was wearing a really cool jacket but did it protect him. It was useless. A tiny little bird threw a stone on him and he fell down – buuufff.
What we put into our heart from what we see, hear, think, do becomes a jacket. Put the right stuff in and you are super duper protected.
Discuss why sometimes we choose not to wear a spiritual jacket and what happens and how to prevent this from happening – purple
Keep connecting to the ayat. 11.57
Black Bags and Water guns.
Pre preparation. Masking tape 2 or 3 squares on the floor one foot by one foot. These will be the spots where the children wearing the black bags will stand.
Our topic is protection.
Children get to volunteer to be shot at by the water guns.
Then with the black bags on. What is the difference? One was protected and one was unprotected.
Protected one ensured not getting wet. Our guidance is much like this protection. Keeps things safe.
Protects and preserves.
Children get a chance to swop and try out both shooting and being shot at.
Connect to ayat and asma and the story and how when we have Allah’s protection we have the Mightiest Protection.
Our golden hearts need guidance. This guidance is like a jacket that protects and preserves it for its home and true purpose.
Allah, Al Hafeedh wants what is made to reach where it is supposed to reach safely. He wants our golden hearts to reach their home, close to Him. Rasulullah our guide and Quran our guide help our golden hearts reach their purpose.
Discuss jealousy- purple group and how it is not in any form protection. What is jealousy? We don’t have something and we don’t want others to have it either. How does that help in any form or shape – discuss.
Whereas a tatmainnal Qulub is so opposite and provides a jacket of joy. Grow discussion into their own lives.
Jackted in Mercy Rhyme
I am so jacketed in mercy
You are so jacketed in mercy
We’re all jacketed in allahs mercy and protection
Thankyou al hafeedh
You are the kharayn hafeedhan
The all knowing all seeing the best of protectors is allaahhh
He protected the kabaa
He protects my golden heart
With Quran and ahlulbayt
The best guides hip hip hooraayy
