Surat Al-Faatiha Lapbook Pages

Surat Al-Faatiha

I have a updated the Surat Al-Faatiha Lapbook. You can download it for free by signing up for email at the top of my blog.

I use this unit study with the Ad-Duha Mini Tafseer Fatiha minibook.  But it can be used with any book or just to teach it because the minibooks are basic facts about the surah. I will be making minibooks from the Ad-Duha Mini Tafseer Workbook Series for all of Juz Amma, InshaAllah.   I pray you and your children find these lapbooks of benefit, InshaAllah.

Surah Summary:

Every surah begins with Bismallah Ar-Rahman, Ar-Rahim, except for Surat At-Tawbah(Surah 9).  And because the Quran is a guidance for mankind we begin with His name.

This surah has an exceptional radiance and beauty and is different from the other surahs.  The other surahs give commands and warnings. What makes this surah so special is Allah is answering his servants.  He has taught us how to supplicate to Him and to ask Him for protection.  He nourishes our faith and keeps us on the straight path.

We begin this surah by supplicating Him with two of His most beautiful names.  He alone deserves worship and He extends His mercy to all of creation.  He has created everything that exists and maintains it at every moment.  We must consistently praise Allah for all the blessings He has bestowed upon us.

He is the Master of the Day of Judgement.  On this day human beings will be rewarded or punished for their good and bad deeds.  Ayah 4 constantly reminds us of the Day of Judgement and to always do good and stay away from sins.

Allah is the only one we worship and  seek His help in everything we do.  Ayah 5 tells us we must ask Him and not any supernatural being, which keeps our hearts connected to Him.

We are always asking Allah to guide us on the straight path and to make it easy for us.  Keeping us firm on this path until we meet Him.

We ask Allah to guide us on the path of those He has blessed and to keep us away from the path of those who have evoked your anger or those who have gone astray.

After we finish reciting this surah we say Ameen, which means O Allah please accept (our prayer).

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 Al-Faatiha mini book or you can purchase the Surat Al-Faatiha e-book and print it out yourself.  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 1-6.  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 check out my Surat Al-Faatiha 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.  As with any of these lapbooks, your child can choose to write his own answers in or use the provided answers.
