            This book is second book in the series “Faatimah & Ahmed” take after “We’re Little Muslims”. The two main characters still be the same and still adorable as always. ^_^

             This book main stories is Faatimah and Ahmed’s Farm Trip to learn more about so many animals especially camel and donkey same like the prophet’s stories. That’s the connected point that this book use for telling the Prophet’s Stories by using Ahmed to be the teller the Prophet’s Stories to his little sister, Faatimah.

          This book provide the stories of miracles of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) that Allah sent down to him. Start from the light shone brightly from the sky the moment he was born and also for the miracle that happened to his foster mother, Halimah and her family in the desert.

Review : Faatimah & Ahmed 

By…Menie

            Faatimah & Ahmed: We’re Little Muslims is a story of a young Muslim boy and girl who are brother and sister. This 2 main characters are so cute for me since the illustration and their moment when they miss each other after Ahmed’s first day at school. It’s heart-warming scene for me ^__^

            This book has been written to inspire a love of Prophet Muhammad SAW in young children’s heart by using these two main characters. Faatimah always want to play and listen to the story of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) from Ahmed, who get all the stories from the school. Ahmed told the special story about when Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was born but this book is emphasis on explaining how important of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is to Muslim.

          If your children like to listen the storybook, so I want to recommend this precious book to your teeny-tiny little girls or boys. Not only this illustration are so adorable but the story provides an informative introduction to the Prophet (SAW) and would be a good starting point for parents seeking to introduce kids to the life of the final messenger of Allah (SWT).

          The story ends with a emphasis on one of the most important aspects of our faith &  the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and encourages little Muslims to learn more about him and try hard as hard to be more like him (SAW). InshaAllah.

         The use of Arabic words and phrases are really useful and the Glossary at the end of the story is handy for those not familiar with some of the terms.

         After I read it once, it made me want to know more about the Prophet (SAW) through the stories they share. So I want to tell that I’m a fan of Faatimah and Ahmed and lookin’ forward to read the next titles in Faatimah and Ahmed Series. InshaAllah.

Ep2: Jerusalem Day 1

Asslamualaikum This post will showing our first Umrah with Jerusalem Visiting Trip

We started at Suvannabhumi Airport BKK to Amman with Royal Jordanian Airline around Midnight and spend 10 hours in airplane. Alhumdulillah at that time my boy is 1.1 ys. so we still can ask for bassinet ( Reserve at the check-in counter first in case that have so many infant passengers).

We reached at Queen Alia International Airport around 5 am after that we headed to Hotel in Amman for dropping the luggage that we would not use it during visiting Jerusalem. We crossed over the King Hussain border and check into hotel in Jerusalem after we waited for long time at the Israeli Immigration Checking Point ( really boring about this but thinking about visiting Al Aqsa was a relieve !)

First of all, we made visit to “Dome of the Rock” golden dome that so many people was confused it with Masjid Al Aqsa. Both Dome of the Rock Mosque and Al-Aqsa Mosque is situated in the same compound, called al-Haram ash-Sharif (“the Noble Sanctuary”). They are about less than a kilometer in distance. Along with seventeen gates and four minarets

Inside Dome of the Rock was under construction at that time but cannot vanish the beauty of it. For the golden dome (as seen from outside) was built exactly above the rock where the transportation of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) during the miraculous Night Journey night to what is referred to as “the farthest Mosque” as mention in Surah Al-Isra’ (Noble Quran Chapter 17).

***For more info about “the Dome of the Rock” was constructed by the order of Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik between 688 and 691 CE***

After that we went to visit and prayed Maqrib and Isha there at Masjid Al Aqsa, The first Qiblat in Islam. This Masjid is one of three Masjids that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) urged every Muslim to come and pray there after Masjid Haram (Makkah ) and Masjid Nabawi (Madinah) according to the authentic Hadith reported by Abu Said Al-Khudri
that allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said, “Journeys may not be made (for visit) to any mosque but three: Masjid Haram , my mosque (Masjid Nabawi) and Masjid Al Aqsa.” [Ahmed 11483, Bukhari 1197, Muslim 827, Ibn e Majah 1410]

This was our first time here, we were really excited about this. The weather there was really breezy cold, my son loved it. ( He tried to take off his sweater so many times, once he did it == Big Smile and LOL ) 555+

Really tired with these long day …so slept tight and made ourselves ready for next trip to come inshaAllah.
