Muslim Crafts: Allah’s Favors

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“Cookies”, ” Mommy” “my eyes” were all responses from kids when asked about Allah’s favors. One pre-schooler responded very exaperated, when The older kids said Allah gave us milk ” No!!! My mommy buys it from the store!”

Using construction paper backgrounds, magazines and ads from newspapers, we made this craft. The idea that all big and little things are a favor from Allah our creator really hit home after making this craft.

Muslim Crafts: prayer beads

Bead to make the tasbih

The Road to Jannah kids made tasbihs/masbahas!  The brightly colored beads gragged their attention. Some lined them up to thread them n patterns.

Patterns

Threading while memorising a dua

I was surprised that the older boys enjoyed this craft as much as the younger kids.

They were working on memorizing Allah’s (SWT) names, while threading the beads through yarn. I ordered the beads through Oriental Trading Company.

The final product

We added tassles and MashaAllah ther prayer beads look gfabulous- good job kids.

Comprehensive Islamic Curriculum produced by Jamiatul Ulama Transvaal, South Africa

This authentic, comprehensive, and well-paced curriculum was produced by the education board of Jamiatul Ulama, Transvaal, South Africa. The 70-year-old organization has put the education of Muslim children as one of its top priorities.

Each package contains books in Tas-heel (Made Easy) series on Aqaid (beliefs), Akhlaq, Fiqh, History, Qur’an, Hadith, and Seerah.

Tas-heel-ul-Aqaid (Beliefs Made Easy), for example, deals with articles of faith in gradually increasing depth. The books are marked Tas-heelul Aqaid (1) through (10). All other Tas-heel (Made Easy) series books are organized in a similar fashion. Exercises, worksheets, and illustrations are included.

We are not aware of any other textbook package that can even come close to these books in clarity, authenticity, breath of coverage, and suitability for the children. The books on Akhlaq and Adab cover Islamic morals, manners, and etiquettes in such a manner that they can go a long way in inculcating good morals and manners in the children.

The books on Aqaid (beliefs) also handle the subject very thoroughly so that those who benefit from them, Insha-Allah, would not encounter the confusions one finds commonly among the western educated Muslims today.
