Dervish Dolls: Dhikr

Today is Thursday and this is one of the traditional days to hold a Dhikr circle or rememberance.  Today our little dervish dolls are demonstrating a Dhikr with tasbih beads where they count surrahs, the names of Allah (s) and salawats on the Prophet (s). 

My children like to attend Dhikr and my eldest even thinks he can lead it.  Using creative play to emulate the Dhikr circle can help children feel like they are participating on their scale.  

Sirajunmunira commissioned these dolls from the WaldorfMagicGlade shop on Etsy.
Please share your ideas for using creative play to teach children about Islam.
