Islam Imagined is a new platform for fun, faith-based activities for children of all ages.

Browse through our selection of educational activities and lessons, discover something that interests you (or your children!) and use these as tools to help unlock creativity and spark new ideas!

Maybe you want to design your own self-driving car to get to Fajr prayer safely, or build a mosque on Minecraft, or learn to fly with Ibn Firnas...

There are many activities to explore under these three themes with Islamic references as a common thread:

1. DESIGN IN OUR WORLD

2. INNOVATION IN OUR HERITAGE

3. TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE

 

Theme 1: Design In Our World

By mixing arts, technology, and science, our design activities encourage kids to use their imagination to its highest potential.

These activities introduce basic design concepts and processes, so that they can envision how to create and construct their own innovative ideas in a rapidly changing world.

Check out the activities below, and click through to get started!

1. LEARN TO DESIGN!

Learn about the design process, so that you can invent new, important technologies to help people globally!


2. DO YOU WUDU?

Muslims perform wudu about five times day! But that can be challenging when you're not at home. Design an innovative and transportable wudu' bottle that's easy to carry around.


3. BECOME AN INVENTOR

Some of the most exciting creations made by humans started by asking a simple question: How can we make the impossible possible? Learn about the engineering process so that you, too, can invent.


4. SCHOOLS OF THE FUTURE

Because of emerging technology, schools will always keep changing and advancing. They won't always look the way they do now! Can you think of what the smart Islamic school of the future could look like?


5. 3d-pRINT YOUR IDEAS

Did you know that there are big printers that can print 3D objects? Imagine printing a prayer mat! Think of a new technology that could similarly create things people could use to help them.


4. MINECRAFT MOSQUE

Build a mosque in Minecraft to understand how the building process begins and ends, all in 3D space!


6. A MOSQUE IN SPACE

One day Muslims might be living in outer space! But where will they pray? Imagine what a space mosque might look like and the features it might need to protect the people inside.


7. Islamic Cities Of The Future

Envision a world with floating cities, upside down houses, and complex sky transport! Check out some futuristic artwork and imagine what Islamic cities could look like 1000 years from now!


8. Transportable prayer mat

When traveling we often forget to take a prayer mat with us, or it just doesn't fit in our bags! Your task is to design the prayer mat of the future, something that is easy to carry, remember, and use!


10. space da'wa

You've been asked to travel to a new planet to teach aliens about Islam! The problem is...it might take a long time to get there. Design a space exploration machine that can get you to outer space faster than any rocket.
