Recently, my two young girls completed their “Who Created You?” Lapbooks designed by Umm Khadeejah of Diary of a Muslim Homeschool. She designed the lapbook with inspiration from the book “The Beneficial Elementary Principals of Tawheed, Fiqh and ‘Aqeedah” by Shaykh Yaahya Ibn ‘Ali al-Hajooree and I couldn’t agree more that this book is one of the most beneficial books. The shaykh wrote this book for his children and its simple question and answer style is most easy for even young children to understand. I recommend every Muslim with children to buy this book. You can purchase it from Sunnah Bookstore. Her fantastic lapbook inspired me to carry on, while using the book as a guide, to produce a second lapbook called “Who Is Your Lord?” You can download the templates for this lapbook HERE. This is what the lapbook looks like when opened out. Inside this first flap is the main question and answer using ayat from the Qur’aan as stated in the Shaykh’s book. This accordion book aims to teach the meaning of Allah Name: Ar-Rabb. He is the Lord and Nurturer, the One Who takes care of the Needs of His Creation. Amina drew some fruit trees to show that Allah provides food for His creatures. In this flap Basma practised her Arabic handwriting, writing Ar-Rabb. I created a quartered flapbook, and on each flap is one of Allah’s Names: Ar-Razzaq, Al-Qayoom, Al-Waahaab, Al-Muhaymin. I chose these Names since they are linked to and reflect His Lordship. I asked Amina to think about as many things as she could that Allah gives us and then under the flaps, she drew some of them. And finally, inside this stacked book is an a reference to Sujood-ush-Shukr ~ a way in which we can thank Allah for His blessings.
Other lapbooks in this series include:
Insha’Allah I will be making some more lapbooks based on this book soon.
