Names of Allah Playing Cards

A while back I took a 4 week session with another sister to teach our homeschool group about the Names and Attributes of Allah.

We felt this was a very important topic and we made sure that the children were aware of that fact based on the Hadith of Abu Hurayrah, radhi’Allahu anhu:

Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sall’Allahu alayhi wasalam said,

“Verily, Allah has ninety-nine Names, a hundred less one; whoever counts (and preserves) them, will enter Paradise. Allah is Witr (One) and loves Al-Witr (the odd numbered things)”


Along with other lessons and games on this subject I decided to make these playing cards, aimed at the younger children.

The cards have the Names and Attributes of Allah written in both Arabic and English Transliteration. Each Name and Attribute has a different colour and there are 4 cards for each Name or Attribute.

The children used the cards to play “Snap” and the memory game and pairs. Each time the children said “snap” we would stop the game to look at the matching cards and discuss the meaning of the Name or Attribute. The kids soon began learning the names in no time, masha’Allah.

If you would like these cards you can download them HERE – HAPPY LEARNING!!
