On 24 March 2019, the boys from Madrasah As-Soabereen (Bishan) successfully carried out an exhibition on the biography of Ashrathul Mubasharah (10 chosen Sahabahs), with an intriguing title; “Will you be the Chosen one?”. The purpose of the exhibition was to portray the importance and virtues of some of the beautiful characters of the 10 Sahabahs, who attained the highest reward of the Hereafter – Jannah (heaven). The theme of the exhibition was based on the environment of the heavens.
ضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوْا عَنْهُ.
May Allah will be pleased with them and they with him.
The exhibition required an extensive amount of time to source out for recyclable materials, to display the many unknown details captivatingly through a fruit theme. Participants to the exhibition were each provided a set a colour printed booklet to enable each participant to craft their own reminders based on the information displayed at the 10 different booths.
Each Sahabah’s history was portrayed including their childhood, family, characters before entering Islam, contribution to Islam, the events that promised them heaven and what we could learn from their actions.
The 10 Sahabahs include Abu Bakar (R.A), Zubair Al Awwam (R.A), Sa’id Ibn Zaid (R.A), Abu Ubaidah Ibn Jarrah (R.A), Talha Ibn Ubaydillah (R.A), Uthman Ibn Affaan (R.A), Umar Ibn Khattab (R.A), Ali ibn Abu Taalib (R.A), Abdul al Rahman ibn Awf (R.A), Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqqas (R.A).
Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W.) said: “Verily for every nation is a trustworthy/reliable person, and our trustworthy/reliable person O ummah is Abu Ubaidah ibn Jarrah.”
Hadith Sunan Ibn Majah
To present to the young children, a simplified version of the exhibition’s content was prepared through purposeful play. At the kids’ booth, the children actively participated in a game that taught them values and characters of the Sahabahs, with an overarching character trait of trustworthiness.
All participants concluded their learning at a giant fruit tree that displayed the 10 Sahabahs’ names. Alongside, a variety of juicy fruits were arranged around the tree for consumption to remind to all about the healthy fruits that Allah has bestowed upon the Mankind.
After learning how the 10 Sahabahs pleased Allah (S.W.T) through their excellent characters, the participants were inspired to emulate some of the characters in their daily lives. Alhamdulillah.
