How do you :-
1. introduce Allah and Islam to a soon-to-be five year old who goes to school sponsored by the Church of England?
It's Christmas and we are in this society where 99% are not muslims. She is involved in a Christmas play involving Christianity. It's fun for her as she's singing all these songs, she gets to go for an excursion to the nearby church to watch plays by the other students, meet the Santa and all...
2. introduce the concept of halal and haram?
She gets hot lunches in school but every morning she will have to choose between the 'red' (meat) or 'green' (vegetarian). Sometimes they have fish in 'red' so she can choose red on those days then. But there are also days when chicken is 'red'. And we eat chicken at home. But she can't choose chicken in school. How do i explain that to her? Obviously i told the teachers that she is allowed to eat fish and vegetarian meals but no meat so that helps when the little one chooses 'red'.
At the moment these are the 2 things that keeps popping up in my head.
I welcome any suggestions from anyone.
