The Voluntary Sacrifice
This project started as a lesson plan on Ballad and Elegy writing for my grade 7 class. In two days, I ended up writing this twelve page Elegy for the Martyrs of Karbala. I and my grade 7 students recited it on the 9th of Muharram in school. Hats off to my students for memorizing my elegy within a week and giving a stellar performance. Inshallah, I will post the video of our performance very soon. In the mean time, do watch my recitation by clicking on the link above.
