Seerah Of The Prophet - lesson

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuh

I'm done z lesson.. yaaaaaaay! I'm so happy. I thought I wasn't going to get it done, alhumduliLlah.

Seerah Of The Prophet

It is based on the book, "Goodnight Stories from the life of the Prophet Mohammad", published by Goodword.

The lesson plan is designed for children ages 5-6. Since they are so young all I really want them to get from this is general idea of what the Prophet's (salAllahu alayhi wa-salaam) life consisted of, and to build a love for the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa-salaam). So the entire 23 day lesson plan is a scenery! For example when a chapter talks about him traveling to Madinah, we'll be making two camels, and we'll stick that on a wall that has a path set towards 'Madinah' - well.. the cave he hid in. Simple.. fun!

This might not be effective for other children, but I know for Abdullah it is. He also understands we don't use 'images' to represent Prophets, etc. Hence the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa-salaam) is represented with 'the seal'. I however have images to represent Khadija (face removed), Buraq (horse with wings), and the Blind Man (mentioned in the Qur'an). You do not have to use these if don't feel it's right.

Insha'Allah I didn't forget anything.. if I did, just email me, or if you have any questions.

This lesson goes great with the Ramadaan Cave.

Thank you for sharing. I bought those book after I saw it here. It is really a good book and my son enjoyed it. I'm thinking of making the cave too. For the mean time we are doing about The Ark of Nuh. The idea comes from you of course. Thanks a lot!
