Prayer Lesson 3


Lesson 3: The Story of the Israa and Miraj

Having talked about the importance of prayer and why we pray in our last lesson, I felt it was important for the kids to understand how we were ordered to pray through a simple retelling of the story of the Israa and Miraj.

You can watch an excellent video about the story of the Israa and Miraj (and all the steps of the prayer!) from the Pray As You Have Seen Me Pray DVD film

I put together this simple story of the Israa and Miraj, and we began by reading through the booklet. You can download it here:



Knowing that the prayers were ordained from above the seven heavens helped stress its importance. The kids enjoyed learning about the Buraq and its also a good time to talk about the Masjid Al Aqsa and Palestine.

We decided to put together a story map of the Prophet’s journey. It helped us visualize the steps that the Prophet took and we finally completed a worksheet about the Israa and Miraj that you can find here.








We also found a great laptop on the Israa and Miraj if you are looking for extra and more advanced resources J
