Asalaamu Alaikum Dear Parents, Welcome to another edition of myDeen Magazine. This month’s theme is about: Saving Our Planet Earth Before entering His Jannah, Allah  has placed us on the planet Earth to see if we are capable of passing His test. He divided us into tribes and spread us around the world so that we may learn to live together and get to know each other. Unfortunately, the world we live in today is in danger. Even though the “Dunya” is not our permanent home, we are responsible as Muslims to do our part and take care of our surroundings. The Earth we are living is in being destroyed and it needs our help, as well as the help of others to restore it. For this month’s edition, we will discuss the different types of pollution that is affecting our planet and by the end of the magazine, we will come up with different solutions on how you can do your part to save planet Earth! There is a total of 3 submission activities throughout this edition where your child has a chance to win one of the monthly prizes! Once your child completes each activity, send a picture to: submit@mydeen.club.

Page 11: : Depending on your child’s age and comprehension, the vowel challenge can be very difficult. Please do assist them in completing the challenge but allow them to write the answers/letters by themselves. Page 12-13:This is our monthly Salah Journal. We kindly ask you to make sure that your child fills this out every month so that they can track their prayers. Offer incentives and reward them if needed as a source of encouragement. Page 18-19: The puzzle pieces are smaller for this month. In order to find the 9 differences on page 19, your child must cut and organize the puzzle pieces from page 18 first. Submit a picture of both pages once they done in order to be considered for the monthly prize. Page 23: Help your child complete this month’s challenge that will test what they learned. Have them reflect on how they can do their part to help save Planet Earth. Note: If you feel that your child is too old or young for this edition, please let us know. We can start mailing them one of the other two age groups, ages 2-4 or 8-11. For further inquiries, email the customer support team at: Info@myDeen.club.

Our Purpose Allah  is the Creator ْ‫ الخَ ــا ِلق‬of everything in this world and everything that is outside this world. What is the purpose of creating all of this? Allah  says in the Qur’an:

‫ َو ُﻫ َﻮ اﻟْ َﻌﺰِﻳ ُﺰ اﻟْ َﻐﻔُﻮر‬،‫اﻟ ِﱠﺬي َﺧﻠ ََﻖ اﻟْ َﻤ ْﻮ َت َواﻟْ َﺤ َﻴﺎ َة ﻟِ َﻴ ْﺒﻠُ َﻮﻛُ ْﻢ أَﻳﱡ ُﻜ ْﻢ أَ ْﺣ َﺴ ُﻦ َﻋ َﻤ ًﻼ‬

˹He is the One˺ Who created death and life in order to test

which of you is best in deeds. And He is the Almighty, All-Forgiving. {Surah 67, Ayah 2} Everyone in this world is created for one purpose only, that is to Worship ‫ ِع َبــا َدة‬Allah  alone and to do good deeds. Allah  placed Adam and his descendants on Earth to prove to them who ultimately would deserve to go to His Jannah ‫الج َّنــــة‬ َ . Allah  has placed us, other human beings, animals and  ْ . Part of being a good Muslim trees all over the Earth ‫اال َ ْرض‬ is to take care of and to protect the Earth from different problems such as pollution, corruption, injustice, and so on. For this month’s edition of myDeen magazine, we will explore the amazing world around us that Allah  has created and how we can help in taking care of it. Unfourtunately, the Earth we are living in is being destroyed slowly and we all must do our part to save it, including YOU!

THE Pollution is anything that makes planet Earth dirty and unhealthy. We cause pollution when we make our water, land and air dirty. Most people in this world are affected by some sort of pollution and we have to do our part to reduce it by making some small changes.

Z

I P B

There are three types of pollution to keep in mind:

1) Air Pollution • • •

N

B

When bad chemicals and gasses enter the air. Some air pollution is caused naturally by volcanoes or dust storms. The air pollution that comes from factories, cars, spray cans, can be really bad for the environment and should be reduced.

2) Land Pollution • •

Anything that damages or makes the land dirty. The biggest kind of land pollution is the amount of garbage that is being thrown on the ground. Remember, Allah  loves those who are clean and part of being clean is keeping the Earth clean!

3) Water Pollution •

When waste, chemicals or trash destroy bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, and oceans. This makes the water dirty and becomes harmful to fish and animals that live there. Using too much water at home, when showering or washing dishes can contribute to water pollution, so be conscious of that.

Prophet Muhammad  once said that even removing harmful things from the path of people counts as a good deed. As Muslims, we have to do our part in keeping the world clean and healthy for others. myDeen.club

Every month, Bilal and Sophia share new stories and experiences that are happening in their lives. See what they are up to this month.

Sophia and Maryam had just gone to the park for a walk. When they got there, they found litter and garbage thrown all over the place. “What happened here?” Asked Sophia. “I don’t know. Looks like some people had a party here,” said Maryam. “This is disgusting!” There was pop spilled all over the slides and cans thrown all over the ground. There were candy wrappers and empty chip bags on the grass. Chip crumbs had been spilled all over the merry-go-round and the see-saw. “This is dangerous for the animals. Look! That squirrel is playing with a pop can. It can seriously hurt itself,” exclaimed Sophia. “We have to clean this up,” said Maryam and she bent to pick up the garbage from near her feet but Sophia stopped her. “Wait! We need to get gloves and bags. And we need to get some help. This is way too much of a mess for the two of us,” said Sophia. “Okay. Let’s go to my place, Bilal and Ibraheem are there, they can help us,” said Maryam.

“I can’t believe someone would make such a mess and leave it. Why would someone do such a thing?” Sophia wondered as they made their way to Maryam’s house. “I don’t know, this park and the whole Earth is our home. We should be doing what we can to take care of it starting from our own house, and neighbourhood. If everyone does their part, the whole world would be a better place to live in.” Maryam replied. Sophia was quiet and in deep thought. “What are you thinking about Sophia?” Asked Maryam. “Well, cleaning up the park is fine, and we can handle it. But we have to make sure that something like this doesn’t happen again,” said Sophia. “What do you have in mind?” Maryam wondered. “Mrs. Smith, our neighbourhood community leader needs to be informed about this. She can help us get to the bottom of who is responsible for this mess at the park,” suggested Sophia. “Yes, that’s a good idea. I think we should also have a community clean up plan. We can schedule a weekly clean-up of the neighbourhood. I am sure the people from the community will volunteer to help. After all, this is their home too,” said Maryam. When they reached Maryam’s house, they found Bilal and Ibraheem playing in the front yard. Sophia and Maryam told them what they saw at the park and asked them to help with the clean-up. Bilal and Ibraheem ran to gather some of the other kids from the neighbourhood to help.

As the small group carrying garbage bags and wearing rubber gloves made their way to the park, they picked up trash from the sidewalk and road as well. Mrs. Smith saw them from her porch and came out to see what was going on. Maryam and Sophia told her what they saw at the park, and she decided to go with them to the park to see for herself. “This is really bad! Who would do such a thing?” Mrs. Smith also wondered. She took out her phone and snapped pictures of the mess and then helped the kids clean-up. Once they were done, Maryam, Bilal, Sophia and Ibraheem discussed their “community clean-up” plan with Mrs. Smith. She thought it was a great idea and she invited Sophia and her friends to present the idea at the community meeting next week. Everyone headed home but Maryam and Sophia sat on the bench at the park. They looked around at the clean park. This is how a park should be; clean, safe and welcoming. They will do whatever it takes to make sure that it will stay that way, In sha’a Allah!

Keeping the area in and around your neighbourhood clean is the first step in saving our planet Earth. Read the story next month to find outwhat other adventures await Bilal and Sophia!
