Lion of Allah part 2

We continued our discussion of Imam Ali (AS) with some fun lion-themed activities, since Asadullah is one of the titles of Imam Ali (AS). You can download these activities below:

  1. Find the name of Imam Ali (AS) in Arabic

To start, we spelled out the name of Imam Ali (AS) using the Arabic magnets, and then broke it down to focus on the letters. After we talked about the letters, my daughter tried to write the name of Imam Ali (AS) herself.

After that, I showed her the picture of the lion and asked her to search for the name of Imam Ali (AS) among the hairs of the lion using her magnifying glass.

“Ali” is written in the lion a total of 10 times, although it is more difficult to find some than it is others. Younger kids will probably struggle to find all of them – my four year old found about 6.

  1. Lion Maze

My daughter loves mazes. I wanted to talk about how Imam Ali (AS) was born inside the Holy Kabah, and when he was attacked, he was in a Masjid. For that reason, this maze starts at the picture of the Holy Kabah, and ends at the picture of a Masjid. To keep the theme of our previous discussion, I kept the shape of the maze as a lion.

There are two versions of this maze – the easier one is the same as the more challenging one, but with most of the “wrong paths” blocked off. You can download whichever one is more suited to the skill levels of your kids — on the Teaching Young Muslims Resource Library!
