Tonight we learned about the Miraj of the Prophet (s) in the children’s Sira The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil.
My son wanted to know why the stone in Jerusalem wanted to rise with the Prophet (s) as he ascended. I said that the stone wanted to follow the Prophet (s).
Next we learned about the great white rooster the Prophet (s) saw in heaven and that this rooster wakes all the other roosters at Fajr. I asked my son if he had ever heard a rooster at Fajr and he said yes. My son then decided that he wanted a rooster so I asked where he was going to keep it. He said on the roof in a cage.
Please share your ideas on how to dissuade your child from keeping livestock on the roof and still foster their love for the Sira of the Prophet (s).
