#gratitudeCAPTIONcontest for KIDS
Sorry, we had to take a tiny break from the gratitude caption contest because of death…
BUT what better way to return than restarting the #gratitudeCAPTIONcontest – which was a BIG help in being optimistic and I’m sure it was a confetti of positive vibes for you too! The winners of “gratitude caption contest for adults” were announced a month ago (as you can see on the next page), this time around it’s all about kids!
Please enter below (from 5th May to 11th May)
Tell us what are you grateful for?
Think of something specific,
FIRST 10 entries will receive FREE access to Alif Baa App – learn the Arabic alphabets in a fun interactive way.
3 best-caption WINNERS will receive the following prize packages as well:
One of the mini winners will receive the following products:
1) 7 Arabic alphabets board books from Homely Hammock.
2) Choice of Arabic resources – Arabic story time session on Skype or printables worth $10 USD from Arabic Seeds.
Another cutest caption will receive:
1) Beautiful prayer gown and mat from Salaty.
2) 2 Islamic children books (prayer practice and Islamic manners activity book) from Deen Square.
And another most adorable caption will receive the following:
1) Islamic children magazine from My Deen Magazine.
2) Halal multivitamin gummy bears for children from Salaam Nutritionals.
3) 3 personalised headband/clips from Laya and Liya’s Bows.
Basically, all these amazing businesses came together to give you some eidi 😀 and spread positive vibes alhamdulillah. Prize shipping will be free of cost no matter where you are in the world. The participating contestants agree to subscribe to Ayeina.
First and foremost, ALL of the entries won the hearts. Choosing the winners and offering them something tangible is simply a way to encourage more gratitude among children (although, I must say, they have much more positivity than all of us adults combined) and to put a smile on their parents’ faces as they ask them this question and hear their adorable answers.
Jazakumullah khair to the sponsors who picked out the winners and YOU guys who helped us pick out the Honorable mentions through social media comments etc.
Yes, we have more than 3 winners of course 😂
Every year, we have a set number of winners decided but we end up giving more prizes than the number initially agreed upon. Because you know…it’s HARD ok!
Special thanks to Salaty and My Deen Magazine for not only offering a prize package to the winner but also to the Honorable Mentions. ArabicSeeds will also be offering her digital Arabic resources to some of the finalists. Hence most of those who participated went away with one thing or the other. Tangible or digital.
We ourselves are giving our # Alhamdulillah For Series Gratitude Journals to two children in the honorable-mention section.
Two of the children (a 4 year old girl and a 9 year old boy) who ended up winning the #gratitudeCAPTIONcontest were those who had multiple great entries mashaaAllah.
1) Winning caption by a 4 year old girl is:
The girl won Homely Hammock’s board books based on her multiple captions chosen by multiple judges!
Alhamdulillah for I didn’t fall after jumping high because I said bismillah before it.
(loved how she made up a scenario and said Alhamdulillah for it while putting her trust in Allah’s words)
Alhamdulillah for Allah gave Jafar at tayyar r.a wings for losing his arms for Allah.
(she knew the story of Jaafar r.a. who lost his arms in a battle of Mu’tah and created a caption out of that story – if you don’t know, then this hadith would help: “Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “I saw Ja’far flying in Paradise with the angels.” [Tirmidhi] – hence he was given the title of at-tayyaar).
Alhamdulillah for park visits after the mosque visits with my baba.
2) Winning caption by a 9 year old boy is :
This boy also had multiple great entries! His winning caption is:
Alhamdulillah for glasses that allow me to see Allah’s beautiful world.
(this caption also won so many people’s heart as everyone highlighted on Instagram and FB on how he focused on a positive part of something we’d consider so negative for a child.)
Alhamdulillah for good memory to help me memorise the Qur’an.
Alhamdulillah for a mom who helps me learn cooking so I can cook when I get older.
(He has pride in something we’d consider shameful for a boy in most cultures. The kid is 9 years old – big enough to understand such things. May Allah reward his parents (especially mother perhaps) for raising him beautifully!)
3)Another winning caption by a 3 year old boy is:
Alhamdulillah for being able to recite “laa ilaaha illallah muhammadur rasulullah” every night before bed.
He won Salaty and Deen Square prize package – sponsors who chose the winning captions, gave their prizes to that kid. He was one of the youngest participants mashaaAllah.
Actually we had more winners lined up but we ran out of products to give 😂 Hence we sent them some of the exclusive digital freebies ❤
4) Alhamdulillah for my unicorn waiting for me in Jannah.
Can you believe this 8 year old girl also sent the art along with her caption! This one has to have the people’s choice awards. It shows how imaginative kids are and really expect Jannah to be the same. A world full of imagination and beyond…
We’ll be sending our #AlhamdulillahForSeries gratitude journal to her in shaa Allah.
5) Alhamdulillah for letting my dad get money from his work and telling him that I wanted a cupcake with a yellow ring on it, and then my dad got it for me. Thank you, Allah for listening to my dua.
The best thing about this caption from a 4 year old girl was the cute little story behind it. She didn’t just say “Thank you, Allah for listening to my dua” – she shared her dua and had such conviction that her father was only able to bring her that favourite cupcake because Allah told him so. Doesn’t that make you want to be a child again?!
We’ll be sending our #AlhamdulillahForSeries gratitude journal to her as well in shaa Allah.
6) Alhamdulillah for my little brother whose ice cream I can always take as he’s not able to finish it!
This 8 years old boy had us all laughing! 😂 Salaty will be sending him a prayer chart along with the sticker sheet.
7) Alhamdulillah for Allah making all our dreams come true in Jannah!
When kids talk about Jannah, it’s the cutest thing ever! My Deen magazine will be sending their Ramadan edition to this 6 year old girl in shaa Allah.
Gratitude CAPTION Contest finally comes to a successful END! Alhamdulillah ❤ Few months to rest before we start the gratitude ART contest around the same theme – #AlhamdulillahForSeries (before Eid ul Adha in shaa Allah). Subscribe to stay updated!
