The Level 3 book is for 7-9 year old children, who have
completed the Level 2 book from Weekend Learning or have similar Islamic knowledge.
Ideally, third-grade students should use this book. This may be their second or
third year in a formal Islamic class. The lessons in the book gradually begin
to spark inquisitiveness of students. For example, what does Allah do, why we
do salah, how Rasulullah (S) treated others and so forth. Students will learn
different names of Allah, understand mercy of Allah, learn additional names of
the Quran, and the types of salah. The concept of 5-pillars of Islam is
reintroduced with additional emphasis. In addition to learning short history of
some of the prophets, students will also learn an outline of the Makkah and
Madinah periods of Rasulullah's (S) life. Several lessons discuss importance of
good deeds, forgiveness, cleanliness, perseverance and other Islamic values and
Attention span of children is small; therefore,
short paragraphs introduce two or three concepts. This is followed by in-class
review section to allow for short break and reinforce learning.
