Praise be to Allah the All Mighty that there are signs of His greatness everywhere around us. This was a message I wanted to instill in my DS without really sitting down and reading books about it but rather getting up and looking around. We just didn’t have to venture too far. It was all there in the hill that backed our yard, SubhanAllah!
This was a project I did with my DS to symbolize what my Amma did with me. I wanted to make a little scrapbook of the wild flowers in our “backyard” as a gift for NanniMa from DS during my trip to Malaysia in November, Insya-Allah.
We went on a little nature walk picking wild flowers and taking photographs of them. We identified them using a book we got from the local library. Later we glued them on paper and wrote down their common names. We talked about their colours, common uses and their sometimes weird names.
Of course we also discussed about how Allah sustains all these plants without nobodies helps. And how these plants actually show us the greatness of Allah.
