I have designed this lapbook after taking inspiration from the book “The Beneficial Elementary Principals of Tawheed, Fiqh and ‘Aqeedah” by Shaykh Yaahya Ibn ‘Ali al-Hajooree.
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.
There are similar lapbooks to accompany this aqeedah series based on this beneficial book. You can view the other lapbooks below:
The third lapbook in this series is called ‘Why Did Allah Create You?’ and you can download the templates for this lapbook HERE.
Here is how the lapbook opens out.
First is the main question and answer flap completed using the answer given by the Shaykh in his book and evidence presented from Qur’aan. The downloadable file includes some letter trace pages for children who are not yet able to write independently.
Next is an accordion fold containing a definition of ‘Ibaadah’ as given by Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyah, rahimahullah. You can read a more detailed explanation HERE.
This little flap allows children to practise their Arabic handwriting with the word ‘Ibaadah’.
This double flap aims to explain to children the two main conditions that must be present for Ibaadah to be accepted.
I have tried to keep the answers as simple as possible. You may wish to expand on this or you may wish to leave out this element until your child is able to better understand, inshaa’Allah
This shutter book focuses on two names of Allah ~ Allah and Al-Ahad. I chose these two names as they contain the meaning of the entire purpose of worship. These names reflect the ultimate and perfect qualities that show why Allah is worthy and deserving of worship alone.
Under each flap is a definition and meaning of the name.
Finally, on the second half of the lapbook there are a set of flaps giving examples of Ibaadah. The flapbook in the file has been designed blank to allow your child to complete it with his or her own examples of Ibaadah. I have also included a sheet of examples that can be cut out and pasted onto the flaps.
My six year old daughter, Amina completed this lapbook and she opted to use the printable Ibaadah pages.
Look out for more lapbooks in this series coming soon inshaa’Allah.
