Children’s Majalis – Idea 2: The Story of Kerbala through Pictures

Children’s Majalis – Idea 2: The Story of Kerbala through Pictures

Here are some more children’s majlis ideas all the way from Singapore… love the idea of expressing the story through pictures!

“We have had two majlises for the children so far. One majlis was conducted entirely by the boys except for a puppet show conducted by the teacher. Two of our young boys talked about the story of Kerbala using pictures that they drew and coloured themselves.

One majlis was specifically for the girls. The children led recitation of hadise kisa, marsiya, nauha and ziarat. The lectures were conducted by the mums using PowerPoint to educate pupils on akhlaq during majalis, lesson from Kerbala and a masaib on Bibi Sakinah (as).”

Children’s majalis – Idea 1: Get the children to do everything

Children’s majalis – Idea 1: Get the children to do everything

Mashallah, around the world more and more majalis for children are taking place. Because of the natural differences of the audience to a typical majlis, the format of these majalis vary – some do plays, others have craft activities, and so on. So i thought it might be nice to have a series on this just now as a way of sharing ideas and inspiration!

To start us off, here are some photos of a majlis for young girls, where the girls did everything, from the main majlis to ziyarat!

“The children took the lead this year, reciting everything from chapters and verses of the Holy Qur’an to marthia, nawha and ziarat.

We were fortunate to be joined by aspiring young reciters who appear regularly on Ahlulbayt tv – Sister Malek Mehdi touched our hearts with her poetry.

Even the lecture was given by a young zakira Fatema Zahra Chandoo, who gave a thought provoking lecture and very moving masaaib on ‘patience’.

As a take-home activity, the children received a cress-growing activity and a dua on patience to support the main message of the majlis.”
