My girls love stickers; I think Bee would sticker the whole house if she could. However, I get extremely excited when I find products that have an Islamic theme to them, so I was pleased to be sent some products from The Muslim Sticker Company – 2019 renamed to Farhat Amin – to have a look at.
The girls were sent 3 books to share:
- My A-Z Sticker Book of Islam
- Shapes Sticker Activity Book
- My Dailty Dua Sticker Activity Book
My A-Z Sticker Book of Islam
This book has over 80 stickers and isn’t just about stickers. Children can practice writing the letters and can colour in the pictures on each page. However I do feel some of the pictures are slightly complicated for the younger ones to colour, as generally they prefer bigger pictures when colouring.
a is for Allah the one and only God. Allah loves and cares for us the most. He wants us to be the best people. When we are kind and caring to others, we are good muslims. We should praise and thank Allah for everything he has given us.
A simple but affective sticker book to help teach your child about Islam in a fun and engaging way, while also helping teach how to write the English alphabet.
Shapes Sticker Activity Book
This book has over 50 Stickers and 15 pages of activities. All the stickers are in the middle of the book. This is the perfect help if your child is at that age where they are learning their shapes. Activities include finding the stickers to match the shape on the page, joining the dots to make the shape and then colour it, drawing the shapes freehand, and even an activity to decorate a prayer mat.
If your child ends up doing all the activities in one go then this book won’t last long. Myself and Bee are doing a page a day and she is learning some shapes she didn’t already know.
My Daily Dua Sticker Activity Book
This contains 26 everyday daily duas. This is a useful aid in helping young children to learn the most commonly used duas. To make the learning of the duas more exciting, each page has a picture to colour. In addition to this there is often a question or a further activity to do. For example, on the page for the Dua when you enter your house, questions are asked at the end:
What do you have outside your house. Do you have a car? Are there flowers or bushes? Add them to the picture of the house.
The book has over 100 stickers and what I particularly like about it is that there is a Dua Star chart at the end where once you have memorised the dua you can add a sticker next to it to show it has been completed.
What I love about all 3 sticker books is that at the start there are some basic guidelines on how to help your child make the most of the activities and the learning potential. In particular I felt it was important to remind both children and parents the importance of remember Allah in the Daily Duas Sticker book:
And for men and women who engage much in Allah’s remembrance, for them Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.
Surah Al Azhaab: 35
Disclosure: I was sent the sticker books for the purposes of review. However all thoughts and opinions are my own.
