Hello lovelies !
My Little Nut is now two years old and learning new things every day. I feel this is the perfect time to introduce him to Islam.
By re-evaluating things I do in our everyday routine , I have become more mindful about actively teaching Islam to my two year old. By adopting simple changes here are two steps I have taken to teach Islam to my 2 year old:
Step 1 –
Read Islamic books to your toddler, it makes learning about Islam fun.
I’m sure many of you already read to your little ones . I have always read to my Little Nut , even whilst I was pregnant with him.
You see Little Nut received his first Islamic book from an Islamic online kids store called Mini Muslim playground . It made me realise how effective reading Islamic books to children can be . I definitely need to go shopping for more!
Step 2 –
Pray with your toddler , they learn by copying.
My Little Nut is more aware of prayer time now. He loves listening to the adhaan (the call to prayer), and will even layout the prayer mat after hearing it.
My husband and I regularly pray with Little Nut . Even though I will begin my prayer with Little Nut beside me and somehow towards the end he’l end up laying across my prayer mat , I am a believer in the saying :
‘Tell me and il forget.
Show me and I may remember .
Involve me and I’ll learn.’
Little Nut has even learnt some of the steps to performing prayer.
I hope this has helped in some way. I would love to hear how you’ve introduced religion to your kids ? and at what age ?
