Thursday 31 March, 1:30pm to 3pm at the IHRC Bookshop, London
Please join children’s authors Elizabeth Lymer and Aisha Mohammed for an interactive family event of Muslim songs, poems, and spoken word
Child-Centred Remembrance of Allah SWT
Insha’Allah Aisha Mohammed will perform a children’s spoken word poem about the love and mercy of Allah SWT. The poem features an endearing story of a boy who sees hi mother look towards the sky when she supplicates, and so tries to help her find Him there.
Insha’Allah Elizabeth Lymer will lead children in singing songs from Ramadan Rhymes, and will teach Muslim action songs from her other books – including Islamic Nursery Rhymes, a book which will be launched the following week by Mindworks Publishing.
Towards Qur’anic Recitation
This rhymes event provides young Muslim children with a fun opportunity to participate in listening to rhymes and singing songs about Allah SWT and Islam. These activities utilise pre-recitation skills, like recognition of rhyme, repetition, and rhythm, to aid memorisation. So the rhymes provide enjoyable and engaging ways to learn Islam and are excellent foundational tools for reciting the Qur’an insha’Allah.
Rhyming Sunnah of the Prophet Stories
Insha’Allah the event will also feature performance poems which introduce children to the characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him).
The event is particularly designed for accompanied children between three and seven years. Younger and older siblings are also welcome and can be accomodated inclusively insha’Alah especially if you confirm the ages of your children in advance, when you make your booking.
Advance booking is essential. Please call 020 8904 4222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you. We look forward to rhyming towards Ramadan with your family insha’Allah 🙂
Aisha Mohammed is co-author of Jaariya Jar, and Elizabeth Lymer is author of Hector Hectricity and the Missing Socks and a handful of Muslim nursery rhymes books
