Mindfulness Resources for Muslim Kids Worldwide
The first kind of Islamic mindfulness activity deck for your mini muslims and muslimahs!
What is Mini Mindful Muslims?
Mini Mindful Muslims is a first new and exciting way to introduce mindfulness activities to your mini muslims and muslimahs, while spending quality time together.
To put it simply, mindfulness means ‘being in the moment’ to what is going on around you and inside you right at this instance. Acknowledging with kindness and patience your feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations (Burke, 2010; Weare, 2013).
In this modern life, where everything is face-paced, time pressured and technology-fied, our minds are constantly stimulated by sound, distraction and information overload. It’s time we start slowing down and noticing what is around us to getting the most out of our relationship with God.
This deck is an inclusive tool for nurturing Islamic practises through relaxation techniques, positivity and calmness through mindfulness.
It's for kids of all ages - primary school aged kids may find them particularly fun! (Adults can join in the fun too!)
"Spiritual excellence is the essence of faith, its spirit, and its perfection by perfecting presence (al-hudur) with Allah Almighty, and mindfulness of Him (muraqabatihi), encompassing fear of Him, love of Him, knowledge of Him, turning to Him, and sincerity to Him"
Sheikh Al-Tuwayjiri Mawsū’at Fiqh Al-Qulūb, 1:785.
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Should I not suggest to you that by which Allah obliterates the sins and elevates the ranks (of a man). They (the hearers) said: Yes, Messenger of Allah. He said: Performing the ablution thoroughly despite odds, tranverside of more paces towards the mosque, and waiting for the next prayer after observing a prayer, and that is mindfulness.

What do other families think?
These cards are beautifully designed and so simple to follow as you can easily seperate the different categories nicely. I already knew about the benefits of mindfulness, and by using these cards, it was a fun way to introduce to my students. I work with primary aged children and it worked brilliantly with students with challenging behaviours and special needs (especially to diffuse and de-escale a situation)!
I use these with my own children and grand children too when they visit, it brings the family together in a calmful and joyous way!
Working with children it can sometimes get frustrating when a child isn't able to connect with their inner self or to Allah. When I came across these fantastic mindfulness cards I gave them a go. Having mindfulness exercises built around Ibadah (worship), gratefulness and other Islamic concepts has made a massive difference in helping children increase their awareness of Allah and themselves allowing them to focus their energy in order to perform better in an academic perspective but also giving them an enjoyment of their faith.

Mindfulness & Islam
Mindfulness and Islam are closely linked. There is the state of ‘muraqabah’ meaning to ‘watch, observe, regard attentively’. A Muslim in this state is in continuous full knowledge that Allah (God) is aware of him/her inwardly and outwardly. The fulfilment of worshipping Allah according to a proper understanding of his beautiful names that convey his perfect knowledge.
“Remember that God knows what is in your souls, so be mindful of Him” (2:235)
