Lives of the Prophets & Their Virtues
For the knowledge of Islam to have meaningful lifelong impact, our children need to be given that knowledge through joyful experience, not rote learning. Through such experience a unity between the mind, heart, and spirit may be forged to shape the child’s understanding.
That is why in our classes we look for softened eyes and dropped jaws at story time. We seek a harmonious, peaceful energy when we sing together. The children connect to their expressive selves through relevant, high standard, art projects related to the topic.
In this 10 week series, Lives of the Prophets and Their Virtues, we will cover the 25 named Prophets mentioned in the Quran, may Allah be pleased with them all. We will help the children to look at the human virtues of these great Prophets that we, as ordinary people, can emulate. We hope this class will be uplifting for the children and we seek the pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa ta ala.
