Dervish Dolls: Muraqaba

Today our little Dervish Dolls are demonstrating Muraqaba where the person tries to spiritualy connect with their teacher through meditation.  The student sits and recites while they become more aware of their teacher is there with them.  This practice helps to strengthen the connection between the student and the teacher.  

Creative play can help children to understand complex concepts like meditation or at least to introduce them.  

These Dervish Dolls were commissioned by Sirajunmunira from WaldorfMagicGlade on Etsy.

Please share your ideas for teaching children about the spiritual practices of Islam.
