Islamic lessons must be designed creatively. The Islamic knowledge must be imparted in the way that students find it interesting. Here are some innovative lesson planning ideas that could work amazingly.
Mystery solving using a visual mind map
The educator can design the mystery visual maps on varied topics. The sample given below may guide how this technique works.
This mind map will be displayed and children will be asked to decipher the picture using the following bulleted statements
Phase 1 focus the main picture
- See what it shows
Phase 2 naming the event
- Identify and locate the things used in the event
- Identify the time of the occurrence of the event
- It was lost by Muslims after getting close to the victory
- Muslims failed to follow the commands of Muhammad (P.B.U.H)
- A lot of Sahabas were martyred
Phase 3 (Focus the linked pictures)
Picture 2 TO 5
These pictures are related to picture one
- They show the role of someone in picture 1
- See how the object could be used in specific event in the identified historical time
- The students in the first phase will identify that it is war
- In the second phase, they will reach the conclusion that it is Ghazwah-e-Uhud
- In the third phase, they will come to know that it is related to the role of women
- In the fourth phase, they will decipher the role of women in following headings
- They carried the leather bag (Mashkiza) in order to give water to the injured
- There is the sword in the women hand in picture 3, the students will find out who used it, how when and why
- They will decipher the first aid items for ancient times and they will know how women treated the ills
- In picture 4, there are the Arabic verses that were said by women to raise the inspiration of the soldiers
Technique number 2
- Make the flash cards and jumble them.
- Then ask the children to read the flashcards.
- Then allow them to read full text related to the event.
- Ask them to arrange the flash cards in order.
- Then ask them to fill the details under the title
- Then allow them to paste their flashcards on the chart so that it could be displayed
The sample below may tell you how to use this technique.
- These are the step by step titles on the role of Muhammad in the battle of Hunain.

Technique number 3
A map showing demographics of events
Decipher the graph
Reading the graph together with students
- It shows the war whose demographics is shown in the graph
- It shows no bloodshed
- It says 0 days spend in the war
- It shows the waiting for enemy for 20 days
- It shows zero injury

Technique number 4
Use of mystery creating props
The use of props can be an excellent idea below is the example that will show how this could prove an excellent idea. Like if you wish to teach the difference in Arab culture before and after Islam, you can arrange the props on two tables.
- A crying doll
- A sword
- A wine glass
