As part of the program to celebrate the births of Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib (AS), Imam Musa Al-Kazim (AS), and Imam Muhammad Taqi (AS), SIIJLA held an Egg Hunt for children under 12 after the Khushali program on April 8, 2017. In the warmth and safety of the Main Hall, over 25 children 'hunted' for plastic eggs filled with candy and a saying of Imam Ali (AS). Among the fitting quotations included in the eggs, the children learned first hand that "patience ensures victory."
Clockwise from top left:
- Excitement builds as the children line up and wait for the hunt to begin.
- Children under 6 had the first opportunity to find the goodies!
- The older children had to work harder for the more well-hidden eggs.
- Patience ensures victory! The kids look happy with their treats.
