Weekly Update...

“O mankind! Eat of that which is lawful and good on the earth.” [The Quran, 2:168]

Theme: Kids in the Kitchen

Our theme last week was extremely fun. Students were exposed to new materials and tools. They shared their stories about:
The meals cooked at home?  Are they kitchen helpers and how they help? What are the kitchen utensils they use? What they know/ don’t know from the 4 food groups? What do they see in the grocery store? What is healthy and what is not. Lastly, the etiquette of eating taught by prophet Mohammed PBUH.

 'Umar bin Abu Salamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (pbuh), said to me, "Mention Allah's Name (i.e., say Bismillah before starting eating), eat with your right hand, and eat from what is near you."

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
