Pat - a - cake, pat - a - cake, baker’s man

PROPOSED CHANGES IN THE ENGLISH POETRY BOOK FOR K.G for AL - MADRASA students, so that the children can easily identify the familiar values, derive inspiration there from and at the same time enjoy their singing.

Instead of sending Yankee Doodle to London, we send our own Yasmin & Zainab to Bombay. Our children are more familiar with masjid - Maula & salgirah than baker's man and baking of cakes.

Little Jack Horner eating his Christmas pie is not a familiar concept with our children, and it compliments haughtiness and the 'I' factor. We would like our Taher & Saifuddin to share their tiffin, together thus bringing out the noble trait of 'brotherhood'.

Doctor Foster went to Gloster, stepped into a puddle, and will never go there again. Our Doctor Taher, although he got himself fully drenched in the rain, will go again and again. The child thus learns to value the noble profession of the Doctor.

'Knock at the door, peep in' says one poem but ISLAM teaches us to knock at the door and wait till you are called in.

On this 86th salgirah mubarak of our beloved Maula Syedna Mohammad Burhanuddin Saheb (TUS) the true AL - ALIM I dedicate my humble effort and herald a small beginning to usher in far reaching changes befitting the teachings of ISLAM and my MAULA and I fervently hope that in time to come, many enlightened educated mumeneens will join in this effort, so that our posterity will remember our DAI and his noble deeds.

LONG LIVE SYEDNA MOHAMMAD BURHANUDDIN SAHEB (TUS)


ABDE SYEDNA (TUS)

CALCUTTA.

Pat - a - cake, pat - a - cake, baker’s man

Bake me a cake as fast as you can

Pat it, and prick it and Mark it with T

And put it in the oven for baby and me.

Ammi make me a pretty dress

Ammi make me a pretty dress

As fast as you can,

I will love to wear it to masjid

MAULA’S salgirah is near at hand.

Little Jack Horner

Sat in a corner

Eating his Christmas pie

He put in his thumb

And pulled out a plum

And said -

"What a good boy am I"

Little Taher and Saifuddin

Sat together

Sharing their tiffin

Sharing their joys

With each other

Goosey Goosey Gander

Whither shall I wander?

Upstairs and downstairs

And in my lady’s chamber

There I met an old man

Who wouldn’t say his prayers?

I caught him by the left leg

And threw him down the stairs

Upstairs and downstairs,

I jumped and I ran

In my Abbu’s room

I met an old man

He prayed and he fasted

Not a word he wasted

He lived long and strong

Till I grew up to be a man

Doctor Foster went to Gloster

In a shower of rain

He stepped in a puddle

Up to his middle and

Never went there again

Doctor Taher went out on a call

In a shower of rain

He got himself wet from hand to foot

No big deal he thought

I will go again when called.

Yankee Doodle went to London

Riding on a pony

He stuck a feather in his cap

And called it macaroni

Yasmin zainab went to Bombay

Riding on a train

Ziyarat of Maula Saifuddin

Was their only aim?

Knock at the door, peep in,

Pull the latch and walk in,

Take a chair; sit down there,

Say Good Morning Mr. Chin Chin, Chin

Knock at the door,

Do not walk in,

When your knock is answered,

With a smiling face,

Now walk in.

Good morning Mr. Sun,

My day has just begun,

We like to see your shining face,

Good morning Mr. Sun.

Ahlan - va - sala O morning Sun

You spread light all around,

We say our prayers before you are up,

And when you are high above

And when you dip your shining face,

We pray with joy and love.
