“Muslim” Mangoes

Assalamu’alaikum!

Here are some pics of the decoration in an Islamic kindergarten here. The classroom had to have a fruit and a quality as the theme, so for this classroom, it was “modest mangoes”. Check out the different mango people…

Ok, so we wanted to have a little fun so we decided to give some of the mangoes real-life personalities. We really mean no disrespect, actually because we love these scholars and teacher so much for the sake of Allah, we wanted to name the mangoes after them. The one that’s dressed like an Arab is the mango version of our beloved Sheikh Ahmad Musa Jibril. The next two mangoes are regular local mango brothers.

Haha the first is Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan in mango version! The next one is our bhai from our native country πŸ˜› The next one is another local mango person.

Other cultures and faiths also had to be reflected. So the first mango in green’s a sister from India, the next is another local mango and the last is a kid mango in regular jeans and t-shirt.

Check out how they look on the walls of the classroom on our twitter page under pics and videos inshaa’Allah (@NuggetsofWizdum). Not sure why I can’t upload them here.

Hope you guys had some laughs πŸ™‚
