Islamic Studies Curriculum.

I have created our own Islamic studies curriculum that we have been currently working through.

This consists of covering the basics of faith using a variety of resources such as printable worksheets, self created worksheets, workbooks and lots of innovative ideas to keep learning fun.

Our curriculum is made up of roughly seven key areas of study.
1) Belief
The 5 Pillars of Islam, articles of faith, 99 Names of Allah, The Prophets, The Books, The Angels of Allah.

2) Manners
Akhlaq, adaab and tarabiyyah, backbiting, lying, the rights of the parents, community care.

3) Arabic
Quran reading, Quranic memorisation, Islamic months, Arabic numbers and days of the week, general vocabulary, duas.

4) Practicals
How to make wudu, how to do ghusl, how to pray, units of each prayer, importance of salaah and maintaining the daily prayers, the ritual of the small pilgrimage (umrah).

5) Ramadhan
The importance and significance of Ramadhan, goals for Ramadhan, Eid al Fitr and eid cards.

6) Biographies
The seerah of the Prophet (pbuh), the seerah of Ibrahim (as) and other Prophets.

7) Others
Creative activities such as build a masjid counting game, learning basic stitching, swimming and other physical activities to learn about health and fitness.

These will change as the children get older and we cover more and more material. You can adapt your Islamic Studies curriculum in any way you wish, focusing on different key areas that you feel your children would enjoy.
