14 Masoomeen timeline

Inspired by the Montessori timeline of the story of the Earth, I have devised a 14 Masoomeen timeline. Using the colour coding concept from the Aimmahs matching cards, I joined A4 coloured felt pieces together and made picture cards with significant events/ artefacts and books related to each masoom. This activity will keep children engaged for long periods as well as enable them to remember significant events and facts about the Masoomeens



Birth of our Holy 3rd Imam

To celebrate the birth of our Holy 3rd Imam Hussein (a.s) how about telling children the story of the angel Fitrus' visit at his birth and the miracle of his wings, with a simple story bag which includes: a cradle with our holy Imam, Prophet Muhammed, Angel Jibrael and Angel Fitrus with detachable wings using Velcro.

Aimmah matching cards

I seem to hibernate term times LOL but Alhamdulillah, by the Grace of Allah, I have created a matching game for children to learn our Aimmahs in sequence. This game consists of 48 colour coded cards with numerals, names of the Holy Imams, an icon designated to recall them as well as their title. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing this game.

Actions of wudhu + salaat routine

When introducing children to the actions of wudhu and salaat, breaking them down into stages will help children of each action. Placing them in a routine will aid them to remember the actions in order. As a visual cue, the routine can be placed on a musallah as preparation for salaat.

Prophet Musa story bag

The story of Prophet Musa can be narrated in different stages. From his birth all the way to the parting of the seas.

Adhan/ Iqama sequencing cards

To practise Adhan and Iqama in sequence, I made simple cards that can be layed out in order. Both the Arabic and English translation are written on this card as well as the number of times each verse should be recited. This would be a good way for children to also identify and remember the differences between them.

Eid bags

To develop the concepts of Eid e Ghadeer and Eid e Mubahila, the events can be narrated through a simple story bags.
To accompany these events, listening to relevant Qasidas will further bring the events alive for children.
Eid e Ghadeer - My Mawla forever/ Ali, Ali Mawla (Voice of Passion)
Eid e Mubahila - Victory at Mubahila (Voice of Passion)
