Today our little dervish dolls are on night watch. Small children are often afraid at night and want a lovey for security. Tonight our little dervishes serve this purpose well. When children are afraid it is a good opportunity to explain that Allah (s) and his saints are watching over us and protecting us from things that go bump in the night.
The donkey and the bearded Dervish Doll are from WaldorfMagicGlade on Etsy. The whirling dervish doll was purchased in Turkey.
