Hijra Windows 1439: The Cave

Our main window for Hijra this year features the spider that  covered the cave to protect the Prophet (s).  This is part of our Hijra Windows Series for celebrating the Muslim New Year.

We have also included the rock dove and nest.

We have included the saffron colored snake that bit Abu Bakr (r).

I made the template myself and used a hole punch to make the eyes before stringing the snake onto a ribbon.

If you would like to read more about the Hijra story to your children there are two chapters in The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil please see chapters 17. The Hijra and 18. The Entry into Medina.

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