A Highly Non Biased Approach To Explain Halloween To Muslim Children

The biggest trait we parents must instil in today’s children is tolerance and empathy; the ability to follow our own traditions and events without putting down or carrying hatred in our hearts for people belonging to other cultures and religions.
So how to make them understand our roots, our history and culture while explaining the reasoning behind other people’s traditions especially when it comes to events like Easter, Halloween or Christmas which Muslims do not celebrate.I have always been confused about this dilemma until I came across this post on Facebook. This is one of the most rational posts I have come across on explaining a non Muslim event to children.

Yet when it comes to choosing a life partner, all of a sudden they are asked to lower down their bars.
This extreme lowering of expectations from a life partner, I think, is the main cause of spousal incompatibility, resentment and regret.

Have You Heard About These Budget Baby Shopping Places In Karachi?

A friendly reminder before I list down the places. These places are for purchasing daily wear for your toddler. Daily wear constitutes those clothes which probably will be washed every week or every two weeks ( depending upon the number of clothes you have and how dirty your toddler gets them).

Read on to find out what other disasters a wrong cutting of tori (Zucchini) led to. Continue reading Murphy’s Law Totally Exists: The Story of My Cooking Disaster
