Prophet Muhammad Lapbook (Madinah Period)

1

It has been three years since I first designed our Prophet Muhammad Lapbook (Makkan Period). At the time I had been disappointed at the lack of resources available for teaching the Seerah and after being unable to find anything sufficient I decided to design my own lapbook. My son, Yusef, completed the lapbook back in the Spring of 2011 and since then it has been one of the most requested downloads from my blog, alhamdulillah!

After many requests for the follow up lapbook on the Madinah Period, I have finally designed the templates to complete the Seerah unit study. You can download the templates and all the reading material for the unit study for free HERE.

I designed this lapbook with much help from the book ‘When the Moon Split’ by Safiur Rahman Mubarakpuri. This book is one of the best books you will ever find on the Seerah of the Prophet, sall’Allahu alayhi wasalam. This book is 320 pages of indepth information, beautifully illustrated with charts, images and maps. You can get a copy of this book from Sunnah Bookstore.

This lapbook can also be used in conjuction with the Seerah Timeline from Learning Roots which displays the Seerah (biography) of Prophet Muhammad, sall’Allahu alayhi wasalam, in two parts – the Makkan period and the Madani Period.

Each separate timeline comes with a set of stickers containing specific events in the life of the Messenger of Allah, sall’Allahu alayhi wasalam, and the children have to stick the events down on the time line in the correct order. Each time my son completed a part of his lapbook he would stick a stick onto the timeline.

He completed this lapbook over the past week. It is made using 3 sheets of A3 card. This is how it looks when folded out.

The lapbook is divided into sections with events grouped together according to the year they took place. The events cover the end of the Hijrah to Madinah up until the death of the Messenger of Allah, sall’Allahu alayhi wasalam, in the 10th year After Hijrah (A.H.)
