Hajj activities for kids

It’s that time of year again- when Millions of Muslims from around the globe travel for pilgrimage and participate in weeklong activities in various cities in Saudi Arabia. Here they carry out rites and rituals to connect them to the historical learning moments of Prophets Abraham and Ishmael and Prophet Mohammed peace be upon them all. Here too the supplicate and pray for forgiveness and mercy, for their hearts’ desires and for the wants of the many who ask for their special prayers at this time.
Those left behind at home celebrate the culmination of the Hajj with sacrifices and festivities of Eid al Adha while reminiscing the meanings of the holiday. For many parents and educators bringing this experience down to the level of a child may seem difficult. Thanks to Sr. Hafsa Taher of HafsaCreates, here is a link of various activities to try with your own children this Hajj season.
Thanks to Productive Muslim for the link.
