Adam’s mom wrote in to tell us how they “Polish the Heart”
“I asked him if he had done as asked, he nodded a yes, but his dad said he did not, so I marked it! Adam jumped off his feet and came running saying sorry and promising he will not speak something that is not true again, so we put a piece of similar paper on it..”
Thank you Adam and Kaoutar!
They also came up with a great heart project for February!
“I wanted to share with you this:
You know that school activities in American schools revolve around celebrations.. each and every celebration is used as themes in classrooms.
For this month the big event is Valentine’s day..
For show and tell, my son Adam had to decorate a shoe box and make a slot in it so his friends put Valentine’s cards in it.. he will be doing the same.
While making the box together, we used all his favourite colors except red.. it came spontaneously, but I liked the other better. I asked him if he knows someone who speaks about the heart. He said Al-Ghazali.
I borrowed the golden heart next to Adam’s name from the golden heart that Demi put on each of al-ghazali’s portraits in his biography..
My intention is to make this month the month to celebrate the teaching of this master on a kid level of understanding.
We are required now to make or buy cads for his 24 classmates. My idea is to make them with Adam and think of a design a message that expresses al-ghazali’s teaching.”
