Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam which means a Muslim must make the obligatory pilgrimage to Mecca at some point during their life. Hajj occurs during the lunar month of Dhu al-Hijjah (or the last month of the Islamic Calendar). I was invited by Zainab of Pure Tarbiyah over on Instagram to share my Hajj activities for children. This is a collaboration with other Muslim mamas, you can follow along here.
I am sharing my Hajj reader and worksheets that I created this year for my children to work on before we leave to go on vacation. They are great for an Islamic study in a secular or Islamic classroom or homeschool.
Your children will read the story of a pilgrim’s on his way to and during Hajj. Then they will have an activity or two to work on before reading the next phase of the journey.
The activities which follow the pilgrim’s journey reinforces fine motor skills such as q-tip painting, tracing, and cut&paste. It includes coloring pages and a maze.
Children will learn dua’as or prayers at the same time by tracing or reading them with you.
