The privilege of being able to do the ziyarat of Bibi Masooma (AS) and Imam Raza (AS) is an honour in itself, but adding to that the role of a mentor, and being able to impact the lives of our youth for the better, added another dimension to my experience of this trip.
Families around the world are recording themselves reading out a story for a new fun initiative called Tell a Tale of Tarbiyah.
The story marathon has been dreamed up by MCE (Madrasah Centre of Excellence) to entertain and inform children during coronavirus lockdown.
Parents and children pick one of MCE’s stories online and read it out, making an mp3 audio recording.
They email their recording to MCE and the best will be converted into a video, with others uploaded on the MCE website.
For one and all
Tell a Tale of Tarbiyah is a story marathon for one and all.
“This is a collaborative effort while everyone is home to get families involved and excited about Tarbiyah. We want as many families to participate as possible,” organisers said.
“The idea is to get families reading together, so we’re calling out to all families to join us in this exciting venture and contribute to the Tarbiyah project.”
How to take part
Deadline is 30 April, so why not choose your story and start practising today?
