Tree PlantingEach Tifl should plant at least one (1) tree with the help of their parents. It would be more beneficial to have the Tifl’s parents get involved with this project. (Increase family ties)

Mosque Beautification & CleanupThere are many ways to make your mosque look great and always be clean. First plan a beautification project for your mosque with your local Khuddaam by planting flowers in its yard. Second, all trash is thrown away, vacuum the carpets, and clean the bathrooms. The Holy Prophet (saw) said cleanliness is half our faith so we should do everything we can for our mosques to be clean and beautiful.
Adopt a HighwayYou can assist your local khuddaam with cleaning up your adopt-a-highway. These are regularly maintained by the khuddaam at least 3-4 times a year. Make sure you participate in the next highway cleanup.
Every tifl should bring the following positive attitude when doing waqar-e-amal and other jamaat activities:
- Habit of doing Hard work.
- What Atfal can do at their home in cleaning such as Garage Cleanup or their own room etc.
- Mosque cleanup.
- Assistance with Khuddaam in Freeway/Highway Cleanup.
- Beautification around the Mosque.
- Plant a tree.
- To help cleaning at the Masjid and Home (such as cleaning after eating and throwing trash).
- Majalis that have Langar Khana/kitchen facilities, Atfal should offer help in cleanup weekly/monthly.
- Plant a tree.
- Volunteer work at the local shelters – collaboration with Khidmat-e-Khalq
- Help and reach out to local organizations for kids activities during any local cities parades and or other events.
- To offer volunteer work for college level games/Such as local UCI/UCLA or other state universities School/College level.
- To offer volunteer work for local exhibitions/events such as (MakerCon in Los Angeles).
- To offer volunteer work at big events games such as (Staple Center, Dodger Stadium in LA etc.)
- Need to work with Regional Nazmeen to figure out and do some research regarding possibilities.
Planning for Planting a Tree
- Visit http://arbordaynow.volunteermatch.org/ for information about any volunteer opportunities in your area. If there is opportunity to volunteer, encourage Atfal and Parents to join.
- If no volunteer opportunities are available, you can plant a tree near your local mosque or prayer center. You may need to seek permission from town or city in order to plant a tree next to a street or in an urban area.
- If you can’t plant at the mosque or in a local park, plant a tree in the backyard of your home or place of residence. The parents should help the Tifl out with this.
- Inform local newspapers and organizations about your planting efforts. Even inform the school and teachers.
- Important: The Tifl should write up an essay or piece about their experience with planting trees. We can post this online or in the Tifl Post. Also, he can share it in school for ‘show and tell’ or discuss it with classmates and teachers.
- Note: Athough this dealt with MLK day it is found to be helpful: http://mlkday.gov/plan/actionguides/conserve.php
