For the birthday of Imam Zamana (AS), we made a birthday card!
On the inside of our birthday card, we put our Areeza.
An areeza is a letter that we write to our Imam (AS). We can ask him for help for whatever we need, and then we can send him that letter by putting it in the sea.
Just like we discussed on the birthday of Imam Hussain (AS), we discussed that the Imams (AS) are closer to Allah (SWT) than we are. When we want to ask Allah (SWT) for something, we can ask THROUGH our Imams (AS), and we can get our prayers and wishes answered more quickly.
An areeza is a way we can do that. Many people choose to write an areeza to our 12th Imam (AS) on his birthday!
For our Areeza, I decided to take the Areeza I found here and super-simplified it for a kids’ perspective. The letter in our Areeza is not an accurate representation of the original Dua, but it contains a little bit of the message in a kid-sized way. You can download our version of the Areeza here.
