Common beliefs in the Islamic religion link Muslim men, women and children together in countries all over the world. When they are learning about Islamic principles and ideals, allowing children to play games that are religiously themed can help them understand the tenets of Islam more completely. There are several websites set up specifically for Muslim children to enjoy that feature interactive games, stories, songs and tutorials.
Designed and maintained by a computer-savvy Muslim teen, IslamicKids.com allows visitors to click on a wide range of topics of interest to the Muslim child. Games include crossword puzzles, word searches, mazes and quests (a sort of trivia question treasure hunt set in various locations, like the desert or jungle). Muslim children can also read Islamic poems, print out colouring pages and research what their name means.
This interactive website is packed with games, stories and songs just right for Muslim children to enjoy. Visitors can perform puzzles, play "save the flower," learn about the attributes of Allah, practice the Arabic alphabet and take a tutorial about the Pillars of Islam. The website also shares stories and videos of popular Islamic fables and stories, as well as songs and rhymes with an Islamic focus.
Islamic Board Games
The whole family can get involved with Islamic board games that teach more about Islam and the Koran. Try board games such as Junior Koran Challenge Game, Hajj Fun Game, Madinah Salat Fun Game and the Great Mosque Game. These games and more for the Muslim family can be purchased online.
Medieval Board Games
Modern Muslim children, from the United States to Malaysia, may enjoy playing the same types of games that dominated the Islamic empire in the eighth century--chess, backgammon and draughts. Medieval Muslims did not believe that playing gambling and dice games was in keeping with the tenets of Islam, so board games that centred on strategy gained popularity. Today's Muslim kids can use chess, draughts and backgammon to strengthen observation skills, improve concentration and hone mental abilities. It helps that the games are plenty of fun.
