I came across this lovely little lapbook a while ago at Diary of a Muslim Homeschool. On Day 15 of our countdown of the 99 Names of Allah, we focused on Allah’s name – Al Khaaliq – The Creator. It was the perfect opportunity to make this lapbook with my girls, Amina and Basma.
This is what the lapbook looks like when it opens.
Inside this flap the girls wrote the ayah from Surah Az-Zumar.
Under each one of these flaps the girls drew a picture of something that Allah has created.
Inside this mini book are three flaps, each one displaying a Name of Allah relating to His ability to create. We discussed these names and the girls wrote the Name in translit. followed by the English meaning.
We discussed the story of how Allah created the Earth and I also included the story of Adam and Hawwa and how they were sent to live on the Earth. The girls did some copy work about this story and lised some of the things Allah created on the Earth inside this circle book.
For this accordion fold we discussed how we can make things using the materials Allah has provided but only Allah can create things from nothing. Basma narrated to me what she understood. I wrote it down for her to copy into the minibook:
“We grow trees from seeds. Allah created trees from nothing. He just says “Be!” and it is”
