Surat Ad-Dhuha Lapbook

Dhuha-book cover-bn

I have another fun lapbook to share with you today.  Surat Ad-Dhuha Lapbook.  InshaAllah you and your children find it of benefit.

Basic Facts about Surat Ad-Dhuha:

This surah is number 93 in the Quran.  It was revealed in Mecca.  It is called a “Makki” surah meaning it was revealed in the beginning of his prophethood before the Hijrah.  It gets its name from the first ayah, the words Ad-Dhuha meaning The Bright Morning Light. This surah teaches us the basic beliefs in Allah the good behavior we need to instill to lead us toward Jannah.  FYI-The Madini surahs were revealed later in his Prophethood, and those surahs are usually longer in length and are about law and society.

Surah Summary:

This surah is special in the fact that it was one of the three surahs where Allah speaks directly to the Prophet(SAAS).

There are three surahs in the Quran where Allah(SWT) speaks directly to the Prophet(SAAS).  They are :

  • Surat Al-Kawthar
  • Surat Ad-Duha
  • Surat Ash-Sharh

This surah was revealed in a time when the Prophet(SAAS) was anxiously awaiting its  arrival.  IN the beginning of the surah it reassures and informs the Prophet(SAAS) that Allah(SWT) has not forsaken nor has left him.  Allah(SWT) soon reminds the Prophet(SAAS) that he will be provided abundantly.

In the last few verses of the surah he reminds the Prophet(SAAS) of his past life and how Allah(SWT) has bestowed upon him His loving care in the most difficult situations.

At the end of the surah he tells the Prophet(SAAS) to be kind to the orphans and needy.

The ages for these lapbooks:

This lapbook is meant to be used with the Ad-Duha Institute Mini Tafseer Books.  You can purchase the Surat Ad-Dhuha mini book or the Surat Ad-Dhuha e-book.   Be sure to click the correct book format when purchasing.  You can buy each book separately or as a set.  Check out the pages of the books here.  I gave a book to each child so that they can color and participate by reading along with me.

These lapbooks can be used at the elementary level grades 1-5.  If you have older students you can have them read and do the minibook themselves.  They can either cut and paste the answers into the mini books or they can write it in themselves.  You can give them a quiz after a review to see if they have fully understood and retained the information.  I will be sharing a study guide and quiz later so be sure to keep a look out.

If you have younger readers you can read it together as a group and then you can help them cut and paste the answers inside the mini books.  The very young may not be able to do all the mini books.  You can pick and choose which ones you would like your students to do.  Another option is for the parent/teacher to cut out all mini books and paste them into the lapbook so it is ready for the younger student to use.  Then the parent or teacher can focus on spending time going over and explaining the surah.

If this is too easy for your older students then you can soon check out my Surat Ad-Dhuha Notebooking Pages where they can write out what they know and learned from the surah.

How long will it take to complete this lapbook?

It all depends on you and your family.  Older students might finish in a few days to a week and younger students may take a couple of weeks or more.  Do not feel pressured to finish in a certain time.  Pace yourself and your kids to what best suits your family.
