Hijra Journey 

This year I was able to find enough carved wood camels to do a small grouping of figures to represent the journey of the Prophet (s) from Mecca to Madina.  

I have wanted to make a scene like this for a long time to represent the journey of the Prophet (s) and his arrival in Medina when his camel Qaswa sat before the home of Abu Ayyub (r).  

Next year I would like to make a desert background to this scene and maybe a model of the house of Abu Ayyub (r) but this year I am happy to finally have the camels.  

If you would like to read more about the story of the Prophet’s (s) arrival in Medina to your children please see The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil: chapter 18. The Entry into Medina.

Please share your ideas for celebrating the Muslim New Year with children.
