“What do you think about your future? Frankly, I never seen someone at your age, can draw as beautiful and as detailed as what you do” I told my daughter.

Her academic is not yet, as good as her brother. But her talent, skills and hard work on drawing are great. And she is good at it. I want my daughter to know that I sincerely admire her ability and I don’t want her academic subjects overshadow her speciality.

“I want to become an artist. A painter!” she replied.

“That is good. I have an opinion. In our country, there are not many people who can sustain their life being artists selling paintings. They are great and world class artists but our society are still not in love with arts as we want. We need to educate them, so they will pay good money for high class masterpiece. You can use your skills in many ways. Even digital” I tried to broaden her perspective.

“I want to open a school camp teaching children painting!” she said.

Introducing Muhammad PBUH to Primary School Kids

I remember many years ago, I was invited to give a talk on our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH to Khalifah Model School’s kids. I wasn’t part of the school’s team back then. An outsider, and most of the kids do not know me. My concern was, I like talking. I can talk on and on for long hours. But that would not serve the purpose of the session. It was part of the school’s celebration to commemorate the mawlid of our beloved Prophet sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam .

I need to strategise a way to make the content relevant to the 7-12 years old primary school children. I decided to create a small game.

The Opposite Game
