Today is Eid Day!

Today is the real day! May Allah grant us all happiness.

Eid Mubarak for every one around the world. Today is the Eid Adha, which means Festival of the Sacrifice, where Muslims around the world sacrifice a sheep, goat, cow, or anything similar, and it is only for those who can afford it. The meat from the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts: a third for oneself, a third for the friends and family, and a third for the poor people. Islam has plenty of charity-motivating acts or even times when charity becomes obligatory, such as the case when you do sacrifice the animal at Eid.
Thus, Eid brings happiness to everybody, and it is important to realize how important charity is. Islam encourages charity in various ways as well.
Happy Eid!

Fire prevention

Today was another interesting lesson with the girls, and we talked about fire prevention techniques. I found a good video about the dangers of fire and shared it in the lesson. It isn't too long, isn't fast paced, nor is it full of technical terms.

   Today, I was with the girls of third year secondary stage. In unit 2 lesson 1 of the book, the lesson about conversations sprouted an interesting comment from one of the girls.
   I asked her whether or not she thinks that conversations could solve all the problems of the world, and her answer was spectacular. She replied that sometimes you can solve the problem with a conversation, but others you shouldn't enter a conversation because it would not change their thinking nor solve the problem. It's true, and poachers especially should be stopped and punished for their actions which are destroying the world.  
   This very good video below shows some of the main things we all need to know about this endangered species. If we could throw away our greed and co-operate together along with the planet's ecosystem, then we could prevent a calamity. We should all unite, and poachers should raise their awareness to the reality they are bringing upon the planet.
