Days of Ramadan # 18



As every Thursday we met yesterday with the girls to do the felting together. The result was some really beautiful stones covered with colourful wool.

And for those who wanted to know what happened with the felted prayer mat from last week: we gave it, fisabillah, to the mosque to hang it as a wall decoration in the women’s prayer room; isn’t that a great decision in Ramadan!?

I wish you a blessed holy Friday!

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) addressed his companions on the last day of Sha`ban, saying, “Oh people! A great month has come over you; a blessed month; a month in which is a night better than a thousand months; month in which Allah has made it compulsory upon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night. Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in (this month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time. It is the month of patience, and the reward of patience is Heaven. It is the month of charity, and a month in which a believer’s sustenance is increased. Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Fire of Hell, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at all.” [Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah]

  3. Assalaamu’alaykum,
    Wow, what is felting? 😛 Sorry, I had no idea what it was until I went to Scotland and the little girl whom I was looking after (I was an au pair) came back with some felting projects. They even made a huge tent out of felt!

    But I still dont’ know how it works, but it looks like fun and very beautiful too! I live in the city, but sometimes I do wonder what it would be like to live in the country….
