The day of Arafah is a very very special day. You can say it is Allah Ta’aala’s most favourite day, and there is no day better than it! As for Shaytan, it is his worst day! He hates the day of Arafah. On this day he feels really grumpy and angry. That’s because on this day, Allah sends down a great amount of mercy and forgives people.
The day of Arafah is on the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah. If anyone from your family or friends has gone for the wonderful journey of Hajj, on this day after Fajr salah they will be marching by foot or driving in cars and buses to a place called Arafah. There will be millions of pe...

We have created a free downloadable resource to encourage children to keep a diary during these times of isolation.
Studies show that writing about your day, your feelings and your worries, lowers depression and anxiety, and also strengthens immune cells called T-lymphocytes.
This resource prompts reflection by asking questions, encouraging children to explore their emotions, their connection with Allah, and to be able to appreciate aspects of our lives as we presently live them - a form of mindfulness.
Zanib Mian speaks about how her book came to be, because of her son’s struggles.
Transitioning from Primary to secondary school caused my young son more grief and hardship than I had ever seen him face. My heart broke, every night, to see his pain. Bedtime was when his emotions would overcome him, which is often the case with adults too. In the quiet of the night, when other duties and tasks cease to distract us, our minds kick in with worrisome thoughts and sad feelings.
As a student who was well-loved by his teachers in primary school, and never once faced even a stern look, let alone a telling off, m...
The power of Dua is mindblowing! Through it, you can GET what you want and AVOID what you don’t want. We have 8 quick, life-changing tips to help you do it right!
