I was recently asked if I knew about Islamic cartoons for children. I personally don’t know many so thought I would do a shout out on my Facebook page and see what was suggested. A few were and I am compiling a list here….and in sha Allah I will add to it as I find more. So if you have any suggestions then please leave them in the comments and I will add to the post.
Please note I am not personally recommending any of these as I have not watched them all, but simply making a list for you to check out if you are after Islamic cartoons.
The Misri Bunch
I am not sure if these are being updated as their Facebook page has not been updated for a while but videos are available on Youtube: The Misri Bunch
Zaky and friends
Zaky and friends was recommended by a number of mums. You can learn more on their Facebook page: Zaky and Friends
Muslim Kids TV
This appears to be a subscription service. You can learn more on their website: Muslim Kids TV.
Ali and Sumaya
Ali and Sumaya have apps and DVD’s to help teach you to pray. They also have some nasheeds on Youtube: Ali and Sumaya
Hurray for Baba Ali
Baba Ali teaches Islamic Manners and can be found on Muslim Kids TV. Have a look at their facebook page: Hurray for Baba Ali.
Moral Vision Kids (Hindu/Urdu/English)
With characters such as Abdul bari and Abdullah, these cartoons are for those who speak Hindi/Urdu. You can find them on You Tube: Moral Vision Kids.
Upin Ipin (Indonesian/English)
Videos of Upin and Ipin can be found on You Tube, have a search.
My daughter Aaliyah loves Upin and I pin. Thanks for sharing
My sister Just recently bought muslim kids tv subscription. Haven’t explored the options personally though. This list is helpful alhamdulillah because i had to even make rhyme videos for my niece because there weren’t any basic rhymes without the annoying music. So had to record myself and edit in the videos along with a bit of animation. Lol. May be some day we should start a YouTube channel haha

ooh you tube channel is a good idea! There is still a need for more programmes focused on muslim children
Salaam sister! To complete your list, I can add some Turkish stuff for young Muslims.
A whole cartoon film about the 5 pillars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EzHqigIPmU
Yusufs world, a cartoon seria made by Turkish State TV TRT (full playlist):
And here is ‘Ahmet ve sevimli dostlar’ (Ahmet and his lovely friends), also a cartoon seria : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oTEaCD-2Dc
Hope it helps in your collection!
Wsalaam. Thank you will add them on in sha Allah
Fozia! This post is love! When I started reading this I thought you might be mentioning a few channels where we can find these programmes but am so glad for the youtube link since I don’t have cable at home and just connect the laptop to tv to watch

Alhamdulillah glad you found it useful
Hopefully you will like them!
I was searching for some Muslim cartoons in the last few weeks but couldn’t come across something good. I did find some though, which I didn’t really like. Thanks for sharing this list. Will check these out and play them for my son.

Hopefully you will like some of these
I like muslim cartoons..thanks for providing the list.
Thank you fozia….As usual a very useful post. I keep coming back to your blog for looking these kind of info. Allah bless you dear…
JazakAllah Khair for your kind words
We love the Misry bunch, Baba Ali and Zaky at our house. Thank you for introducing us to some new ones we weren’t aware of 🙂
I have been looking for something like this for a very long time. I wasn’t exactly looking for Islamic cartoons but i felt the type of cartoons that are being shown on the famous cartoon channels ain’t suitable for kids in any way, and are more like Adult cartoons. With summer vacations just approaching, these will definitely be helpful to keep te kids busy. JazakAllah khair for such a useful post.
wa iyaaki. In sha Allah the kids enjoy them
JazakAllah Fozia for the list but the Moral Vision Kids Cartoons you mentioned are also in ENGLISH and are superb for the instilling Islamic values beside HINDI/ URDU.
Thank you. Will change it to make it clear they are in English too in sha Allah
This is a great compilation – very useful for those with small children in their lives. Thanks!!
