This week we will inshaAllah be wrapping up our Bird Nature Study by learning about all the birds mentioned in the quran and hadith. It’s amazing to read up on how birds were part of unforgettable stories in prophetic history, appearing in the stories of prophet Ibrahim, Sulayman, Dawud, Isa and Musa (peace be upon them). Allah (s.w.t) tells us that whosoever is in the heavens and on the earth,( i.e. the angels, mankind, Jinn, animals and even inanimate objects) all glorify Him.
I can’t help but contemplate on Allah’s perfection and signs when I look up to the skies, which is why we are excited to share with you what we have been learning, as well as provide some printables and other resources including a free handcrafted song, and book which we thought might be helpful.

This cartoon about Suratul Feel is by Zaky. Birds play an important role in this story which is a great watch for little ones and if you want a children’s book on Suratul feel, then you have to check out The Story of the Elephant Quranic Pop-Up book by 7 shades. It might just be one of the best Quranic pop-up book I have seen. Then again it is the only Quranic pop-up book on the market right now. The illustrations are bright and superb and overall it’s a great interactive book for kids.
