    Salaam my dears, how are you all doing? Welcome to our celebration. We hope that we have a good program, as well as learn new things, and most importantly, we hope that we have a good time together. Like always let us start today’s program in the name of God and brighten our celebration by reading the ayah’s (verses) of the Quran. Who here knows surah al-kawthar? So, we can all recite along with them. (If no one volunteers, you either can recite the surah or you can play the recitation of the surah, along with the verses being displayed)

    أعوذُ باللهِ مِنَ الشَیطانِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

    إِنَّا أَعْطَيْنَاكَ الْكَوْثَرَ ﴿١ فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْ ﴿٢ إِنَّ شَانِئَكَ هُوَ الْأَبْتَرُ ﴿٣

    We seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaitan, In the Name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful, O’ (Muhammad), We have granted you abundant virtue.(1) So worship your Lord and make sacrificial offerings. (2) Whoever hates you will himself remain childless. (3)

    God revealed this surah to the Prophet when God gave the Prophet a precious little girl. In this surah God tells His Prophet and all of the people who read these ayahs’ that this precious girl is a very special and important gift for the Prophet and all of the people of the world. Do you all know why? Well now, listen carefully!

    You all know that the only child of our Prophet, which all the offspring and children of the prophet remained, was through lady Zahra (Sa). Before the birth of lady Zahra, Prophet had a child; however, his child died from a disease. Therefore, this made the Prophet and his beloved wife lady Khadijah very sad. The enemies of the Prophet would make fun of him and would tell him that you do not have a child and your generation will not continue! When God gave lady Zahra (SA) to the Prophet, in Surah al-Kawthar God gave the news to the Prophet that this is a great gift for him. The word al-Kawthar, comes from the word “Kasir” which means abundance or plenty! And it meant that God gave the Prophet a very big and an important thing. Now it’s good that all of us think to see why this gift that God gave the Prophet was so great and special?

    My dears, do you all know what we call the people who are the descendants of the Prophet, meaning that their grandpa or their great-grandpa is the Prophet? Yes, that is right! Seyed and Sadat. Whoever is “seyed” means they are the child of the Prophet. In today’s world, we have millions of people who are seyed. This means that the descendants of the Prophet are living all around the world. And no one in history ever had so many children living all around this world. It is interesting to know that these people are the descendants of the Prophet through lady Zahra. Meaning that lady Zahra, is the mother of all the children of the Prophet. This in itself is very important.

    More importantly, lady Zahra (SA) is the mother of all our Imam’s. Meaning all those who were the best people in history and everyone was guided by them; their mother was lady Zahra (SA)! Also, these great people in history, were all proud that their mother, was the best, the purest, and the greatest women in the world.

    We, Muslims and Shia’s are also proud that we have such a great mother. We are proud that our religion honors the great status of women. And for us to be the best servant of God, we must know her as the best woman, and ask her to pray for us before God to be great servants and for God to help us all.

    She was also a great teacher for all the girls around the world. She taught important things to the women and the girls of her time. Although she was young, many women would go to her, and ask her questions about their life matters. She was a great mother for her children, Imam Hassan, Imam Hussain, lady Zainab and lady Omm-kolthum. She was also a great and devoted wife for Imam Ali (AS). We congratulate the Imam of Our Time (AS) on her birthday, and we ask the Imam of Our Time to pray for us as a gift; so, we can continue the path of his mother, be good human beings, and always defend the truth and truthful.

    Well, I have said all of this to tell you that we have all gathered her to celebrate the birth of lady Zahra. We also know this day as Mother’s Day, congratulate our mothers on this day, and buy them gifts. So, this way we give them back something in return for all the great things they have done for us. Well thank God that you have already have something to give as a gift. I am sure your dear mothers will love them since it is handmade, and that is really valuable!

    Now are you all ready to see the rest of the program?

    Story: A Patient Teacher

    lady Fatimah (SA) showed lots of patience and perseverance when teaching others about religious issues. One day, a woman came to her and said: I have an old mother who did something wrong while praying. She has sent me to you, so I can ask you about it. lady Zahra Salaam-allah-alaiha answered her question. The women repeated the same question for the second and third time and every time lady Zahra would answer her question with patience and diligence. The women went to the house of lady Zahra 10 times and asked her a question, and lady would answer her question. The woman was embarrassed from going to her house that many times and said: I will no longer bother you with my questions. However, Lady Fatimah may God’s peace be upon her said: No come back and ask your questions, no matter how many times you come back to me with a question I will not get upset Because I have heard from my father the Messenger of God (SAWA) who said: when the day of judgment comes, God will gather all the Muslim scholars at one place, and will reward them based on their service they have done to the people. And the one who puts the most time and effort in showing others the right path and the path towards God’s satisfaction, will get the greatest reward, and will go to the best places in heaven.

    Yes, my dears, the woman that we look up to as our role model; she always showed great patience and kindness to the people. She would share her great knowledge without expecting anything in return, and would guide and help people to the right path. It’s good for us to also learn from her, and be patient, be diligent, and be kind with others; and if we know something, we should teach it to others as well.

    Life Lesson: Etiquette of Eating and Drinking

    Mentor: Alright my dears, now we want to eat something. Who’s hungry? Who wants to help serving the food? Alright 4 people should come up and help spread the table cloth and two people should come up and help put the plates and …

    Please Note: for refreshments, you may prepare small bites of bread and cheese or bite size cookies/sweets and arranged them on the table. Or you may also prepare the bread and cheese and allow them to make mini sandwiches. The purpose of this segment is to teach them the etiquette of drinking and eating. Hence, please pay attention to the following points and convey them to the kids. While eating highlight these points and, make sure the kids also adhere to them.

    Mentor: My dears! Did you all ever know that in our religion and according to the life style of our Imams, we have certain rules, and codes for eating, drinking and many other good behaviors? Which in today’s society specialists are researching about it, in order to find the best instructions, which are healthy for the humans, have a positive outcome for the society and follow the right morals?! Yes, in our religion and the life-style of our Imam’s, we have such instructions which have been said and followed 1400 years ag. And today, many specialists are just learning about these instructions, and are telling other people that it’s better for them to follow it. Now I would like to give you all an example from lady Zahra (SA), who taught us a few instructions about eating the right way. So, like me, you all can be proud of having such a great lady as a teacher. Now, let’s all head to class of lady Zahra (Salaam alllah aliha).

    Lady Fatemeh al-Zahra, may God’s blessings be upon her, while eating, she followed the best moral principles, values and health guidelines, and to guide those who loved her she stated a few instructions. She said: Those who sit around a table and eat, they have to follow and know about a few important instructions, which can be divided into three parts:

    The first part is “wajib” and mandatory, the 2nd part is mustahab (recommended), and following the last part is a sign of respect and shows our personality.

    And now the 4 instructions that are mandatory are as follows:

    1- Understanding how and by whom these blessings have been provided for us and who has given them to us.

    1. Being satisfied and happy as to what God has provided and given to us.
    2. Saying the name of dear God before starting to eat, meaning to say “b-ismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīmi” (In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful). And also knowing that we are starting to eat God’s blessings with God’s permission.
    3. And when we start to eat and when we are finished, we should thank and praise dear God.

    And now the 2nd part, meaning the recommended actions while eating are as follows:

    1. Washing the hands and mouth before eating
    2. Eat while you are sitting down

    And finally, are the signs of respect and character:

    1. Try to take and eat the food that is placed in front of you, and in order to take food we should never extend our hands in front of someone else.
    2. Take small and reasonable bites
    3. Chew our food well, and never swallow it quickly
    4. While eating, we should never look at someone else’s face, hand or mouth.

    From now on let’s all try to follow these instructions and teach it to others as well. So not only can we be good Muslims, but also, we can stay healthy and have good morals.

    Play: A Fatemi Sacrifice (The Blessed Necklace)

    Narrator: One of the companions of the Prophet (SAWA) has narrated for us that one day the Messenger of God (SAWA) was praying the evening prayers along with us. After the end of the prayer, in his altar (i.e: minbar, pulpit), he turned toward the people and people came and sat around him.

    In the meanwhile, an old man who was dressed in old and torn clothes and could not stand on his feet due to hunger and his old age entered.

    The Holy Prophet (SAWA) bestowed his kindness on him, asked about his health and how he is doing!

    The Old man: O’ messenger of God! I am hungry, I need food. I am naked, clothe me. I am poor, give me something!

    Narrator: The Prophet said: I have nothing to give you, however, whoever guides another to a good deed, and it is as if they have performed that good deed.

    Go to the house of one that loves Allah and his messenger and Allah and His messenger love her too; one who prefers Allah to herself. Go to the house of my daughter Fatimah (SA). The house of Lady Fatima was besides the mosque of the Holy Prophet (SAWA).

    Then he said: O’ Bilal (my dears, who knows, who Bilal was? Yes, Bilal was Prophets Muazen, the one who recited the call to prayers) stand up and guide this man to the house of Fatimah (SA)!

    The old man went with Bilal.

    As the old man got to the house of Lady Fatima, he stood near the door and with a loud voice he shouted:

    Old man: Peace be upon you o’ the Household of the Prophet! And the place of passage of angels! And O’ the place where archangel Gabriel descends, whom revealed the Quran from the Lord of the Universe!

    Narrator: Lady Fatimah (AS) replies: Blessings and peace of Allah be upon you, who are you?

    Old man: I am an old man living in the outskirts of the desert. I came from far away land and met your father who is the leader of the people. And O’ the daughter of Muhammad (SAWA), I am hungry, do not have clothes, please look after me! May God’s mercy be upon you!

    Narrator: At that time, it had been three days that the Holy Prophet, Lady Zahra (SA) and Imam Ali (AS) had not eaten anything. And the Messenger of God (SAWA) was already aware of this matter.

     Lady Fatimah (AS), grabbed the small sheepskin which she used as a carpet and bedding for Hassan and Hussain (AS) and said: O’ our guest! Take this! I hope that Allah gives you better than this!

    Old man: O’ the daughter of the Prophet! I came to you complaining of hunger, and then you give me this sheepskin!??? I am hungry, what can I do with this sheepskin?

    Narrator: When Lady Fatimah (SA) heard this from the old man, she grabbed the necklace that Fatimah, her cousin (Hamzah’s daughter) had given as a gift to her. She unfastened it, gave it to the old man, and said: Take this, and sell it! I hope that Allah gives you better than this!

    The old man took the necklace and returned to the masjid to see the Prophet (SAWA). Prophet was still sitting with his companions. He turned to the Prophet and said:

    Old man: O’ Messenger of God! Your daughter Fatimah has given me this necklace and said: Sell this! And I hope that Allah gives you better than this!

    Narrator: The Prophet cried and said: how could this not solve your problem, while Fatimah, the daughter of Muhammad is the leader of the women of the worlds has given this to you!

    Ammar al-Yasir, moved closer, stood up and said:

    Ammar: O messenger of God! Will you give me permission to buy this necklace?

    Narrator: The Holy Prophet said: buy it, because if all of the God’s creatures participate in buying this, God will save them from the Hell fire.

    Ammar: O the Old man! How much will you sell this necklace for?

    Old man: for a food once from bread and meat, an expensive fabric from Yemen which I can clothe myself with, and pray with to my lord, and for 1-dinar Gold so I can return to my family.

    Narrator: Meanwhile, Ammar had sold his share from the Battle of Khaybar and had a bit of money.

    Ammar (facing the old man): I will give you 20 dinars, 200 dirhams, a Yemmini fabric, and my horse. So you may return to your house. And I will feed you with wheat and meat.

    Old man: O man! How generous are you!

    Narrator: He then went with Ammar and Ammar gave him what he promised. The old man returned to the Messenger of God (SAWA). The Holy Prophet (SAWA) asked him: are you satisfied and did you wear clothes?

    Old man: Yes! May my parents be your ransom! I became needless!

    Narrator: The Prophet said: so now give a reward to Fatimah (AS) for what she has done for you.

    Old man: O Allah! You are the creator and we do not worship any God but You. You are the one who blesses us! O Allah! Bless Fatimah with what no one has so far seen or heard about!

    Narrator: The Messenger of God said Amen to the old man’s prayer, then turns to his companions and says: Allah has granted three things in this world to Fatimah (AS): I am her father, and no one in the world is like me. Ali (as) is her husband and had he not been, there would be no suitable husband for her. Hassan and Hussein are her son who are the leaders of the youths of Paradise, while no one in this world are like these two grandchildren of the prophet. In front of the Prophet, Salman and Meqhdad were sitting. Prophet said:  Should I say more about Fatimah (as)?

    They said: Yes, O messenger of God!

    Prophet said: beware, I will tell you more about the virtues of Fatimah: indeed, Allah has chosen a group of angels to protect her from above as well as from the right and left sides. They are with her in her lifetime, and her grave, constantly saluting her, her father, her husband, and her children. So whoever visits my grave after my death, has indeed visited me in my lifetime. Whoever visits Ali ibn abi talib, has indeed visited Fatimah. And whoever visits their children, has indeed visited both Fatimah and Ali (AS).

    Narrator: Ammar (after listening to the virtues) goes home, grabs the necklace, perfumes it with scent, puts it in an expensive cloth, and gives it to his slave and says:

    Ammar: Take this necklace to the Holy Prophet (SAWA) and after this you will belong to him.

    Narrator: the slave of Ammar takes the necklace, goes to the Prophet (SAWA), and retells the Prophet what Ammar had told him.

    The Messenger of God (may God’s blessings be Upon Him and his Holy Household) said to the slave: Go to Fatimah and give her the necklace! And after this you will belong to him.

    Slave: Alright! O Messenger of God. Thank you.

    Narrator: the slave took the necklace to Fatima (Alaiha-aslaam) and told her what the Messenger of God had told him.

    Lady Fatimah took the necklace and freed the slave in the way of Allah.

    After that the slave started laughing.

    Lady Fatima (SA) said to the slave: why are you laughing?

    Slave: I am surprised at the blessings of this necklace. Because indeed it has:

    1. satisfied a hungry person
    2. Clothed a naked person
    3. Fulfilled the needs of another
    4. Freed a slave
    5. And in the end returned to its owner!

    Narrator: Alright my dears did you all enjoy the play? I recommend all of you, to think more about this play and the lesson behind what lady Zahra (SA) did. When our mother lady Zahra (SA), self-sacrifices and gives out her own belongings to those in need; she for sure will never leave us alone when we need her help and dua’a. Today, it is the Imam of Our Time (AJ) who has the same good characteristic of generosity. If we ever request something from him, and want from him to ask God for something, he is soooooo great and kind that he will sure pray for us. And will request our wishes from the dear God. Now please recite a loud salwaat for the health of the Imam of Our Time (AJ), as well as to make the heart of lady Zahra (SA) happy!

    Alright, I hope you are all not too tired? Thank God. My dears! We want to know what you have learned in today’s program and what segment was your favorite? Can someone raise their hand and tell me what they have learned?

    Yes, you are all right and pointed out good things. Great Job!

    First, today we thought of our own mothers and made them a gift, thanked them for all they’ve done for us, and above all we thought of our beloved mother lady Zahra (SA) and became more familiar with her and her kindness. I am very happy that the best woman on this earth is my role model, I know her, love her, and try to learn good things from her.

    For example, today we learned how to eat correctly, and what we should do be healthier, and what we should do so others who eat with us, can enjoy their food as well, and even learn from us the right way to sit around the table and eat. So, we can tell them that we have learned it from lady Zahra (SA) and encourage them to this as well.

    What else did we learn; we also learned to be patient, and be patient when we want to tell others something especially those who are younger than us. Because those who are younger than us, they are not that patient, and it might take them longer to understand some things. That is why it’s important for us to be patient and easy-going with them.

    Well, Thank God, we spent our day with all of you, and had so much fun. Now, do you all like to congratulate the son of lady Zahra (sa) meaning the Imam of Our Time, on the birthday of his mother and be happy? To please the Imam of Our Time (AS) let’s all pray for his return.
