Kalimaat Kids - This is what happens when cute kids try to play a grown up game

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

Currently working on Season 3 but I thought I share this with you while you're waiting

This kids is this video do NOT wear hijab. Naturally, some kids try to imitate the older people around them (clothes, talking, etc..) and sometimes they wear it for fun for the sake of imitation (like in this video).

So far I've seen Kalimaat played by mostly people between the ages of 15 to 40. I wanted to see what would happen when a 5 year old and 2 year old tried to play. To make it natural, I left the game on the table, press the record button and left the room :) Its funny when young children try to imitate grown ups.

Anyways, I put together the Season 3 page now on Ummah Films site: http://www.ummahfilms.com/season3.html

The next video for Season 3 will be ready next Friday (8/7/09) InshAllah

Thanks Br. Ali. That was very informative, I will make sure not to let my 3 yr old and 1 yr old nieces play the game together :-D
The 2nd time around was funny - looks like the younger little darling was either annoyed or just plain bored and then started making those kissy sounds LOL. Gotta love the little ones, am I right?

note :

i know that children are not forced ( i mean obliged by Shar' of Allah ) to wear hijab

i also know that parents - good muslim ones - should teach their children religion.

and part of that is to teach them what to wear so that they have rida of Allah

my question is :
how come a muslim has to explain why their child wear hijab , to why they like to teach their kids to do so , or why the kids like wearing like their parents , while at the same time the same muslim person doesn't have to do the same thing if they make their child wear a swimming suite or a bikini !

nor does the non-muslim have to explain why they make their children wear swim suites ?!

The reason why I mentioned it is because I have a large number of comments with people thinking that hijab was forced upon a 2yr old. There are many non-Muslims which read the blog and may not know be clear regarding the issue of Hijab (at the age when women are required to cover properly) so for the sake of clarity, I felt it would be best to put the disclaimer.

As you know, many Muslims themselves don't know their own religion. You would be amazed on the type of responses I have received thus far on this issue alone. Its kinda of sad when you think about it.

Anonymous, thats really harsh and mean.
Has it occurred to you that she may have asthma? Or, yes, BREATHING DIFFICULTIES?? Sheesh!!
The point of this video is not to give your opinion on which child is the cuter. Its not a Cuteness Contest.

its great BAba Ali that u do inform people

the sad part is the level of knowledge + stereotype + ignorance that many people have ,whether Muslim or non Muslim

magnifying something ( they understood wrong ) vs another they are doing ( which is actually wrong )

Barak Allh fekom

I dont understand the "hijab apology"... Kafirs are dressing their children in hoochie mama clothes at that age with no apologies.
Im Just Sayin!

Bro, I didn't know how to reach you otherwise, but this needs your IMMEDIATE ATTENTION.

You have a large viewership Mashallah. I believe ur speaking up about Google's illegal take over of Sheikh Yusuf Estes' website www.youtubeislam.com can make a lot of difference Inshallah. Visit the website to know more if your not aware of this already.

Please join in for the sake of Allah.

That was not a "hijab apology", it was an explanation.

You never know, that explanation could spark an individuals interest in researching islam and hijab etc, and could potentially change their lives and afterlives inshallah. Think of the reward you can get from such a small act, apology or not!

but good point!

Nothing wrong with little girls wearing hijab if they want to, good practice mashaAllah :)
