Then your hearts hardened after that, so that they were like rocks, rather worse in hardness; and surely there are some rocks from which streams burst forth, and there are some of them which split asunder so water issues out of them, and there are some of them which fall down for fear of Allah, and Allah is not at all heedless of what you do. (2:74)

The above verse refers to the Bani Israel who were told to sacrifice a cow and strike a murdered man with a part of it. The man would then become alive and tell them who his murderer was.

We urge school and Madrasah teachers to use this historical event to impart everyday lessons. The following are some ideas on what children can do during Muharram.
