Salaat Keeper

This is a continuance of our salaat lesson.

I have been going over the different parts of salaat for my 5 yr old as she has shown much curiousity.

I have not had much time to make lapbooks with the kids since the new baby masha Allah. I chose to go ahead and make a salat keeper instead.

A Salaat keeper is simply a file folder that holds all the materials for the lesson.

The front of the salaat keeper is decorated with paint. I am not sure if you are able to see in the picture,but the ends have twine string to make it look like the ends of a prayer rug.

salaat spinner

This is the salat spinner, which I absolutely love! We got this from A Muslim Child is Born Blog  My 5yr old colored it in and I glued it to a piece of cardboard. She sits in the corner with it practicing…so cute masha Allah.

I was showing my 5 yr where to face and used this little book from Talibiddeenjr Blog

5 daily salat cover

The five daily salaat book ,illlustrates the position of the sun for each prayer. This is the cover.


Here is the inside of the book. We have not put ours together yet ( I was too excited to get it posted) *smile*

I made that book before the other.

salaat copywork

Here is the salaat copywork We got this from Islamic Copywork Blog This was so cute. My little one thought it was such a priviledge to be able to draw a prayer rug at the end.

Rakaat count cards. We got these from Talibiddeenjr Blog

We printed them out on cardstock for durability and to help my little one count the number of rakaat for each salaat.

Here is the last we have put into the salaat keeper. My child has often mimicked us in making dhikr after salaat. I thought to make up a little booklet to teach her. Here is the cover of the booklet.
