I love this activity that one mum did with her kids to celebrate the Prophets birthday!
Inspired by the Hadith by Imam Kadhim (as): ‘Whoever memorises 40 Hadith, in the Day of Judgement Allah will raise them as a learned scholar’, and by the verse in the Quran calling the Prophet the ‘Best of Examples’ (Ahzab:21), they put together a feltboard of 40 Hadith by the Prophet.
They used this board to keep track of every time they practised one of the Hadith like smiling or brushing, by sticking small stickers on the laminated Hadith.
They played memory games with the board by looking at it for 2 mins and then trying to remember what the different Hadith were about.
And they’ve also used it as a Pictionary game!
What a great way to learn about and emulate the ways of the Prophet 🙂
