Following our cooking venture with dates, I thought I will do a little book compiling a few hadith/stories on dates. The website AlMiskeenah has got a whole category dedicated to dates. There are some wonderful photographs of dates trees as well as varieties of the fruits. We browsed through this website to look at the pictures and talked about a few of the hadith on dates.
Here are some pictures of our little dates book.
This is the cover with a date related hadith. It is from Umm Abdul Basir’s Creative Corner.
I thought DS2 was most astonished when he learnt that the first food he ever ate was dates! He also was fascinated by the crying date tree story.
I made this date tree pattern block template with a hadith on it using printables I found at Teacher Vison Canada. Insha-Allah I have ordered some pattern blocks and hopefully we will be able to use them for this template.
