The Journey of Imam Husayn (as)

Materials Needed:
Globe/World map 
Worksheet Map isolating Middle East 
Stickers/pens 
Images of holy shrines in the area 

Help the children become familiar with the sites of the holy shrines by sticking the images in the correct countries. Mark out using stickers, the route taken by Imam Husayn (as). Can extend the route using a different colour to show how the journey continued by Imam's family after Karbala.



Extend the activity by adding text labels printed from the flash cards made by Teaching Young Muslims or for older children the more detailed cards by Towards Jannah. Continue the journey as a timeline over the next 40 days, describing the events until the holy family finally return home.
