The Lineage of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ Family Tree Activities for Kids

Prophet Muhammad Lineage

To know him is to love him ﷺ. As we endeavour to help our children to form heart connections with the Prophet ﷺ, we must begin with knowledge. Nurture a love of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in them by learning about him and his noble lineage ﷺ.

Memorising his patrilineal lineage (the male line) is a practice of the traditional cultures of the past that, sadly, is slowly being lost amongst modern-day Muslim children.

Using the FREE worksheets we have provided here, your children can easily memorise the blessed pure lineage of the Prophet Muhammad and strengthen their love for him ﷺ, insha’Allah.

How to use the Prophet Lineage worksheets

These worksheet activities have been designed to make teaching the Prophetic lineage as easy (and enjoyable) as possible!

There are Four Ways to Use these worksheets;

  1. Daily Memorisation. Remember a name from the Prophetic lineage each day (the correct order is on the guide sheet on page 3). Start from the Prophet’s father, Abdullah, and once remembered you can write it on the page. 
  2. Sing-a-long. Remember as many names from the lineage as you can, a great way would be to sing-a-long with the Itsy Bitsy Muslims on Youtube where they are also learning the Greatest of All Trees. (An faster-paced alternative is this nasheed – includes music.) Once learnt, the names can be written on the page from memory. 
  3. Sorting Game. Cut out all the names on page 4 and mix them and try and place them in the correct order. 
  4. Ordering Game. The order of the lineage is mixed up on this page 5, place the right number in the circle. The Prophet ﷺ is number 1 and his father Abdullah is number 2. Number the remaining in the correct order.

Homeschooling | Why some Succeed and others Don’t!

homeschool

When homeschooling you have the best intentions, but sometimes you wonder if you’re going to make it. Does your homeschool have a chance of success? How are you going to make it work, or even if you will fail?

You know how homeschooling benefits your kids and provides them with an excellent education. You’ve found advice on choosing curriculum, learning styles, methods of homeschooling, and setting up a schedule. But have you ever been told what personal qualities YOU NEED to succeed?

Homeschool

In Episode 92 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share how to successfully homeschool.

Enough to Homeschool

Enough to Homeschool is a 5-day virtual workshop with Dr. Gemma, for the mother who is ready to feel like a homeschooler.

Start Muslim homeschooling - homeschool planning

Homeschooling success depends on the mother’s emotional regulation.

The curriculum she picks, her daily routine, and her knowledge of education are helpful. But, if she cannot see through the fog of her emotions, she will not be able to see the truth of what her children need, how to best educate them, and will struggle to enjoy the privilege that is home education.

Unlock your confidence and step into your role as a home educator!

The Enough to Homeschool 5-day workshop will take place 10-14th October 2022.

Why You Can’t Stick to Your Homeschool Plans!

homeschool plan

Although you know exactly what you should be doing at a particular moment, on a specific day of your homeschool, do you still struggle to accomplish it? There are times when even the best-laid homeschool plans don’t work out. When this happens, it can leave you feeling stressed and anxious.

All of us have done it. Despite creating seemingly perfect plans, they get discarded after a few weeks. How come we spend so much time creating plans and then have trouble sticking to our homeschool plans?

homeschool plan

In Episode 90 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share how you can stick to your homeschool plans.

Points to be taken away:-

  • The initial period requires some experimentation and time to figure things out. It’s ok if you don’t get it right the first time!
  • Are you being over ambitious or unrealistic considering the season of life you find yourself in
  • Do you tell yourself you never follow through on things? Do you tell other people you can’t stick to plans? If you want to, you’ll need to change that part of your identity!

The Power of Play | Play-Based Learning with Pey Abdulwahid

play-based-learning

Play-based learning is so much more than just having fun for children; it is also a great way for them to learn. During childhood, play plays a significant role in the development and health of children and their long-term success in learning and life. It is through play that competence is built in many domains. As children play, they are able to address social problems, solve problems solve and invent scenes and stories.

Pey Abdulwahid speaks about the importance of preserving play and wonder in childhood and gives advice to mothers who want to give their children more freedom when playing.

play-based learning

In Episode 89 of the Raising Mums podcast, I talk to Pey Abdulwahid about play-based learning.

Pey is a mum of 3 little kids (5 and under). She is interested in psychology, neuroscience and anything parenting and early childhood development, and of course, Islam. She likes to wrap gifts, cut, doodle, and do anything crafty and she also loves going to the beach and swimming.

Several reasons exist for parents to not send their child to public schools, such as dissatisfaction with the curriculum, teaching methods, and religious concerns, but is homeschooling really better?

Teaching Islamic Art with Wajiha Khalil

islamic art

Islamic Art is a subject that is often overlooked when developing our curriculum, especially with today’s focus on technology. The arts are really essential for growing minds to help our children engage with their personal and cultural understanding. I can help build key skills such as critical and creative thinking as well as developing their fine and gross motor skills. Above all, taking some time to create something from the heart is a wonderful way to glorify Allah (SWT) who created us.

Islamic art

In Episode 85 of the Raising Mums podcast, I talk to Wajiha Khalil, creator, and teacher at Sacred Art Workshops.

Wajiha Khalil is a mother of three boys, a multidisciplinary artist, and a student of sacred knowledge. Through Sacred Art Workshops, she conveys Islamic knowledge to children through visual art and creative discovery. Her process strives to bring an integrated sense of understanding through engaging projects that create a memorable experience, not only beautiful art – but an inspired and curious heart. 

You can catch up with some of the wonderful work Wajiha does with her students, and join her upcoming classes, on her website https://www.sacredartworkshops.com/ and also on her Instagram https://www.instagram.com/sacredartworkshops/
