The last session of the Kids Halaqa was focused on the Tafsir of Surah al-Nasr.

Alhamdolillah, I found a lovely breakdown of the Tafsir of Surah al-Nasr explained by Brother Nouman Ali Khan.
A lovely, short video which challenged the older girls and allowed them to engage with the Surah on a deeper level.
The video I used is below:
Working off the Tafsir of this Surah, I focused on the theme of seeking of forgiveness from Allah and specifically the du3a of Yunus when he was in the belly of the whale. I felt I hadn’t given this aspect of the story more attention in the Pumpkin party.
So the girls in pairs brainstormed what steps might be involved in seeking forgiveness. Which then led to the following activity:

Kids then coloured in the whales in their chosen shade of blue. I decided to use these little double sided squares to stick the cut out onto the clothes peg.
The little mini Surahs that show up in the middle need some adjustment to make sure it can be seen clearly – play around with it a little bit and it should work out. Interestingly, this turned out to be a good revision resource for this little dua3.
HERE is a website with clear pictures and instructions on how to put together the above activity!
The end result…
I hope you found these resources useful inshallah.

One fun way of teaching the Surah order of Juzz `Amma is to create this Accordion folding stick craft activity – what a mouthful! 🙂 I came across this activity as a Butterfly activity and it has many versions such as the Father’s Day one. Here is the link to the Bible craft version on Danielle’s Place of Crafts and Activities as it has excellent pictures that explain how to make it.
There are two ways of making this activity: If you want to hang it, you can attach a ribbon to the top into a loophole or leave the ribbon and use it to tie it together. Also, the Surah order can be either from Surah Naba to Surah al-Nas or the other way around.
What you will need:
- Jumbo Craft sticks: For my class I needed 10 for each student so I had to buy them in bulk from Amazon.
- The Juzz `Amma surah list pdf
- Coloured card strips
For copyright reasons, I don’t think I can include even the instructions – so If you want to make this Accordion folding please head over to the Danielle’s place of Craft and Activities site.
For my class: I have cut the card into strips that fit into the jumbo size I need. If you want to avoid cutting strips because it is a time consuming thing, you can buy colored jumbo lollipop sticks. I have added stickers to jazz it up as well!
Hope you enjoy creating this activity with your class!
