Seerah for Kids

Our Seerah Study and Resources

Alhamdullah we have finally started our Seerah Studies and I am indebted to Um Maimoonah (check out her blog here http://ummmaimoonahrecords.blogspot.com/  ) for many of the ideas here.

I hope that Allah will instill the love of His Prophet Mohammad SAWS in our children's hearts and that they learn to follow the Prophet’s Sunnah.  InshAllah I intend to supplement our Seerah study with hadith study so that they can begin to understand the reason behind studying the Seerah. I’m also trying to get them to think of how the Prophet SAWS would have acted in different situations especially when they find themselves in tough and angry situations. (Would the Prophet SAWS have shouted in that way to his friends, should you shout like that to your sister?) And you can imagine how many situations like this we encounter everyday J

I have also taught them how to pray upon the Prophet Mohammad SAWS, and I hope to get them to pray upon him at least ten times daily InshAllah. I’ve explained how every time someone prays upon the Prophet, he returns their Salam and A gets really excited and says, ‘Now Prophet Mohammad has said waAlaikum Assalam A!’

May Allah ingrain the love of His Prophet in our hearts and the hearts of our children InshAllah.


So here is the list of the resources, I will be using:

1.       The Seerah Curriculum (As created by Um Nu’man

4.       The Sealed Nectar
General reading, but for me to brush up on my facts and to summarize as it is quite difficult for kids.
