Hasan and Aneesa go to Madrasa
Me and my kids loved this book from @kubepublishing so much! And I love how it is so relatable to all little Muslim children.⠀ ⠀ Madrasa means “school” in Arabic, and here is the word used for an after-school Islamic studies/Quran program held in a home that Hasan and Aneesa go to. But it also can be used for when children who go to weekend programs at the masjid for the same purpose.⠀ ⠀ Hasan and Aneesa’s enthusiasm in going to their madrasa is infectious, and in usual Hasan and Aneesa fashion, all aspects of Quran/Islamic programs are explored and explained to kids.⠀ ⠀ Aneesa and Hasan dress in their traditional Islamic clothing and make wudu in preparation. This is a beautiful sunnah: to wear your best clothes and be clean in preparation for learning and worship.⠀ ⠀ Aneesa is learning the Arabic alphabet and she recites them to a teacher, while Hasan reads some lines in the Quran. Both actions were relatable to my kids (who request I use their names in the book instead of Hasan and Aneesa😉)⠀ ⠀ The kids color, eat snacks, and then pray together. After the prayer, they listen to a quick Islamic studies lesson, and do some Islamic trivia. ⠀ ⠀ After their fun time, the kids head home with their parents. This book really does a good job of letting kids be excited about learning Islam and Quran, and by reading about it, kids feel like they relate to it and get encouraged to work harder in their own “madrasas”.⠀ ⠀ We love the illustrations and pictures, and as usual there is Islamic facts and themes sprinkled throughout that teach the kids to love Islam.⠀ ⠀ This is also sold individually by @sirajstore and @crescentmoonbookstore
