RAMADAN LESSON # 4
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:
"Fasting is a Shield"
Meaning that just like in war a shield protects a soldier from being hit by a sword a fast protects a fasting person from doing bad deeds as he is constantly thinking of Allah and doesn't want to spoil his fast or reduce his ajr. So as a reminder of that to stop ypur self from doing something wrong you can say
"As Siyamo Junnah!"
Lil Muallimah's Shield
Lil Muallim # 2's Shield
In previous years they have made their own out of paper plates and aluminium foil with their own hand drawn sword or design stuck on them.
Lil muallim # 1 and Lil maullim # 2 had also made one as a cover for Fasting is a Shield booklet for our Ramadan lapbook some years ago. For this they had very patiently stick tiny pieces of aluminium foil one by one around the design. Mashallah!
