Mosque Crafts Title Pic

Arts and crafts is a great way to get children excited when learning about Islam. In many of our lives, the mosque plays a crucial central role. From the congregational prayers, to the classes and social gatherings, the masjid is a central part of our daily lives. For others, who are not fortunate to live close to a mosque, parents can struggle to instil a love of the masjid in the hearts of their children.

It is reported by Abu Huraira that the Prophet (pbuh) said:

“The most beloved of places to Allah are the mosques, and the most hated places to Allah are the markets.” Sahih Muslim 671

We are also told, in the famous hadith below, that of the seven people under the shade of Allah (swt) on the day of Judgement, will be those whose hearts are attached to the mosque:

It was reported by Abu Huraira, that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

There are seven whom Allah will shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic; a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah’s sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position (for illegal intercourse), but be says: ‘I fear Allah’, a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.'” Bukhari (629) & Muslim (2248),

It’s also worth remembering that if our children feel attached to the mosque, it will strengthen their sense of Islamic identity and get them excited about Islam, and be proud to be Muslim!

Here are 12 beautiful Mosque crafts that you can do with your children, to help nurture a love of the masjid in their hearts.
