by Riwaya

    Parenting is a beautiful journey filled with moments of joy, learning, and nurturing. As parents, we strive to instil strong values and provide our children with a solid foundation for life. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by introducing Islam to our young ones and connecting them with the divine wisdom and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). 

    In this short blog, we will explore some of the best books on the market to introduce to young children, incorporating interactive elements to enhance their understanding and appreciation of Islam!

    The Importance of Teaching Children Islam

    The period of childhood is of utmost importance in shaping a child's character and belief system. The Quran and Hadith provide a strong foundation for children when they are taught about Islam from an early age. Through this foundation, they are guided to make ethical decisions and navigate obstacles throughout their lives.

    Additionally, by making sure your kids receive the right knowledge from a young age, you are actually following the sunnah (teachings of the prophet PBUH). Prophet Mumahhed PBUH ordered us to teach our kids how to pray:

    "Teach your child to pray, when he becomes seven, and punish him for not obeying it from the age of ten"(at-Tirmizi No. 407).

    How to Introduce Kids to Islam?

    Introducing kids to Islam can be a fun and engaging experience. To get started, be a good example by demonstrating Islamic values and practices in your daily life as our prophet PBUH said:

    "The best amongst you are those who have the best manners and character" [Bukhari]

    Teach children the core beliefs of Islam, such as the oneness of Allah, prayer, and fasting. Incorporate interactive activities like hands-on games and crafts to learn the 99 names of Allah SWT. 

    Instead of reading bedtime stories about made-up characters, consider telling your children captivating tales about Prophets and companions. This way, they can learn from the examples set by the best men to ever walk the earth and follow Prophet Mohammed's teachings. As the Quran states, "Indeed in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example to follow."

    {Indeed there is in Allah’s Messenger an excellent and fine example for you.} [Al-Ahzab:33:21]
