4 Interactive Ways to Teach Kids about Islam
Technology has become a part of our everyday lives. The new-era kids are tech-savvy from an early age. Online education is becoming more common, especially during this pandemic. As online learning is an interactive and innovative way to access knowledge, we can use it to teach kids about Islam – the beautiful religion that teaches peace!
Children of this generation love interactive learning with stimulating visuals; they will have fun while also receiving valuable information which leads them in the right direction when choosing their values as adults later on in life (a habit). This tradition starts at an early age so if you want your child or yourself to be knowledgeable Muslims by default then there’s no better time than now.
My Salah Mat
My salah mat is an amazingly innovative way to learn the fundamentals of Islamic prayer. The design features a nifty set-up that teaches kids about every step of their prayers, including washing themselves before praying (wudu), finding Mecca on a map for better directionality and accuracy in prayerful worship (qibla), and reciting special verses from Allah’s holy book during each stage of one’s ritualized movements while prostrating (‘takbeer’) or standing up straight again (‘surahs’). My favorite feature: it has buttons with markings so my little girl can hit them at the right time!

There are many different types like “Before Eating,” “After Leaving Home” or even just simple phrases such as ‘Bismillahi-ir-Rahmani ir Rahim’ (“In the name of God – The Most Gracious –The Ever Merciful”) before. starting anything.
