Az-Zahra Garden Project

As-Salaamu Alaikum. Today was a beautiful day and several brothers and sisters took full advantage of it. The adults had a busy day planting rose bushes, trimming trees, mowing the lawn, and performing general cleanup as part of the beautification project. Our Sunday Enrichment Program’s teachers and students were very creative and busy too. They put potting soil and plants in the pots that they painted last week in preparation of this project. Alhumdu lillah, our Center has a fresh new look.

Thanks to all the community members who donated money, materials, and time towards these projects. Special thanks to everyone who participated in these projects. May Allah (swt) accept all our hard work and reward us for our efforts, insha’Allah.

Earth Day at Az-Zahra Center

Sunday, April 23rd 2017 12:00 PM

“Not without purpose did we create heaven and earth and all in between” Qur’an 38:27

Kids will start planting plants at Noon.
Adult will start planting Rose bushes same time.

Salaam Alaykum,

Please come and join us.

Today as the children learned about Allah (swt) and his greatness, we discussed his creation of the Earth, and many of the bounties within it. We discussed the importance of taking care of each other and the earth we live on. In honor of Earth Day, the students started a project today, that will carry over next weekend to allow them to get involved in planting a flower in soil and watching it grow over time. This week, they painted their flower pots and prepared them for potting next Sunday.

This is a great way for the children to get involved, get hands-on, and learn about the blessings and greatness of Allah (swt) through Earth and Nature through participation. We encourage all students to attend next week, and further hope that parents can come and be involved in this activity with their students. As adults, we hope to encourage and set a good example for our youth, through engagement and through community building, Insha’Allah our little ones can learn to love and cherish the bounties Allah (swt) has given us. This will surely be an activity the kids will remember!

Additionally, it will be a great opportunity to liven up the grounds around our blessed center and brighten our entrance into the building by planting flowers. As the children prepare their individual pots, we hope the adults can help around the center grounds. There is so much reward in the simple task of spending time with your loved ones in the way of Allah (swt), so let’s come together both physically and spiritually, in this blessed month of Rajab to plant the seeds, in Shabaan we will watch the seeds grow, and in Ramadhan we will reap the rewards!
