The world’s religions and traditions share common threads:
December’s Theme is The Gift of Holiday Traditions. The last month of the year has many holidays that are celebrated around the world. The consistent thread is celebrating our spiritual truths and giving to those we love.
November's theme is Muslim Foundations: Prayer, Truthfulness, Piousness and Generosity.
This month’s stories come from the Sahih al-Bukari. This collection is one of the six major ‘hadiths’, the stories denoting the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad in Sunni Islam. The hadith is generally accepted by Muslims as a secondary source of Islamic law after the Qur’an. These prophetic traditions were collected by a Muslim scholar after being transmitted orally for generations. The book covers almost all aspects of life in providing proper guidance of Islam such as the method of performing prayers and other actions of worship.
October is the month to celebrate the joy and creative play found in all the world's religions through laughter (Buddha), dance (Muslim, Jewish, Native American) and song. The stories include "Tuan and his neighbor" and "How to be the greatest person in the world". Children in creative play! For Halloween, we celebrate Children Helping Children by partnering with Unicef(™).
