For the past few days I have been busy putting final touches to our Islamic Studies Interactive Notebook Unit.
We’ve done lapbooks, we’ve done notebooks and now we are doing interactive (lift-the-flap) notebooks, mashaa’Allah. With a houseful of (mostly) girls, we are all about presentation; a simple sheet of paper and a pencil just doesn’t do it for us, so I decided to make our unit studies a bit more colourful and creative.
I am planning out our Islamic studies in units, beginning, of course, with Aqeedah. This will then be followed by units on Ibaadah and Fiqh of Ibaadah. This first unit covers Belief in Allah. I am currently working on further units including:
- Unit 2: The Unseen ~ Angels
- Unit 3: The Unseen ~ Jinn
- Unit 4: The Prophets and Messengers
- Unit 5: The Books of Allah
- Unit 6: The Last Day
- Unit 7: Allah’s Decree
- Unit 8: Ibaadah ~ The Purpose of Creation
- Unit 9: Dhikr and Du’aa
- Unit 10: The Advice of Luqmaan
- Unit 11: Adaab and Akhlaaq
- Unit 12: Fiqh of Purification
- Unit 13: Fiqh of Salaat
- Unit 14: Fiqh of Zakaat
- Unit 15: Fiqh of Siyaam
- Unit 16: Fiqh of Hajj
Below are some examples of what the notebook would look like. It contains 30+ activities. I recommend using the following books to study in order to complete the unit inshaa’Allah, all of which are available to purchase from Sunnah Bookstore:
- The Islamic Creed for Children by Shaykh Khaalid Uthmaan
- Aqeedah & Fiqh Adapted from the Saudi Curriculum by SalafyInk Umm Abdis Salaam Al Grenaadiyyah
- Knowing Allaah by Dr Muhammad al-Jibaly
- Explanation of Ibn Taymiyyah’s Al-Aqeedatul-Hamawiyyah, explained by Shaykh al-Uthaymeen
- Where is Allah? by Imran Bin Ibrahim bin Suliman Patel
