Quran Curriculum: Surah Naas Project

Standard

For those who are not familiar with the Quran curriculum that we started this year, please read the following post: https://ummihomeschoolsme.wordpress.com/2010/07/26/planning-for-20102011-part-2/ (the part about the Quran curriculum is towards the end of the post)

Okay, so here is the Surah Naas Project:

  • Recite Surah Naas
  • Read the translation and tafseer and discuss the child’s thoughts about surah naas. Good child friendly explanation of the surah can be found in this book:

 

  • R then completed the Ad-Duha mini tafseer book: 114 Naas
  • R then read and completed the fun activities in The Story of Adam (AS):

This can be bought from http://www.learningroots.com
  •  We then went back to the explanation of surah naas and talked about Shaytaan and how we can defend ourselves from his whisperings – we talked about situational duas, asking Allah for protection, eating with the right hand, morning and evening adhkar, coming into the house with our right foot and leaving with our left etc.
  • R then completed this unit study on Shaytaan: understanding_shaitaan (this comes from a really great blog mashaAllah: http://homeschool4muslims.blogspot.com/)
  • We then branched into Geography and discussed who ‘Naas’ is. We discussed the different nationalities of humankind and that they live in countries and that countries together form continents. Here, I would advise using a globe. R then completed the following ABC Book of Continents (instead of frawing the animals, she cut them out): ABC-BookofContinents
  • Learning about continents and using the globe to complete that book triggered a lot of questions from R about maps and globes, so we completed a few activities from this great resource: K-2 Maps Rev 1 This resource has so many activities in it. We didn’t complete everything. We watched a lot of the video links recommended in the resource. We made an old-style treasure map, a compass rose and drew some other maps.
  • We finished the project with R choosing a country that she would like to study in more detail. She chose Saudi Arabia and the following ready made lapbook can be used for any country. She actually hasn’t finished it yet. Here are some of the mini books she has completed:

These are the front covers of some of the minibooks.

Inside the mini books.

 We mainly used the internet to get information about Saudi Arabia as we couldn’t find a library book on the country. http://www.homeschoolshare.com/country_lapbook.php

  • And once R finishes this lapbook, I plan to put everything into a binder and make a front page called ‘Surah Naas’ project so that she can look back at it. We will also finish off with a discussion about the surah and what she has learnt about Surah Naas.

Here are some of the blog posts which feature some of the activities we did for the surah naas project: https://ummihomeschoolsme.wordpress.com/?s=naas

Hope you find it beneficial and if you do do it with your children, do let me know how it goes inshaAllah.

  4. as salam o alaikum, Jaza killaho khairun sister, your ideas are good ma sha allah and your blog inspiring. How do you get the iqra books e.g the short surahs textbook. Is there a uk supplier?

  5. Asalamualaikum Sister,

    Could I please get your e-mail address as I would like to discuss the Naas project with you insha-Allah. Jazak-Allah.

  6. Asalamualaikum Sister,

    May Allah bless you for your efforts to educate the children of our Ummah. My name is Cilia Ndiaye, I am the founder of Ad-Duha Institute and the author of the Mini Tafseer Book Series books that are mentioned in your Naas Project.

    Just a note that the version of the Mini Tafseer Book: Suratun-Naas you have posted is the old edition. The newest edition of this book, and all the books in the series, are available online from the Ad-Duha website (www.ad-duha.org) in the Digital Library. You can access all the full length books for free in 3D Flip Book format.

    I would ask you please not to post the rest of the series online, as the old version of the books have some errors that have been corrected in the new edition. Also the books are copyrighted. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me using the contact page on the Ad-Duha website. May Allah help us in everything that is best and most pleasing to Him.
