Islam for Kids on Islam Channel
Islam Channel is at the heart of the Muslim community in the UK and worldwide. It prides itself especially on its unique offering for the family audience. Muslim kids’ TV is particularly important for children who are growing up in non-Muslim countries, such as the UK.
Islam Channel’s dedicated children’s programming provides the foundation for cultural connections and teaches them the fundamentals of Islam, called the five pillars of Islam. It is one of the best ways to gain an introduction to Islam for children.
Parents can trust Islam Channel to provide the best Muslim kids’ TV, showing only programmes which are suitable and have appropriate messages, whilst also keeping children entertained. Islam Channel provides entertaining content for children of all ages.
It does this in many different ways. It teaches them the stories of the prophets, provides guidance on how to pray, explains the meaning of the holy month of Ramadan, introduces children to nasheeds, Islamic arts and crafts and so much more.
Islam Channel doesn’t only cater for younger children. Its online content and especially its social media offering helps to keep teenagers in touch with issues affecting Muslims throughout the world. It also provides handy explainer videos, which can help teenagers to explain Islam to their friends.
Muslim Kids’ TV
Islam Channel Kids (IC Kids) is at the heart of our family programming, focusing on all aspects of Islam for kids including educational content about Islam for children. One of the most important time slots for this audience is the after-school slot, which is why Islam Channel Kids is usually shown at 4pm with its entertaining mix of segments covering stories, nasheeds and activities for children of all ages.
How does Islam Channel incorporate Islam for children into its programmes?
Islam Channel aims to make the messages of Islam simple for children to understand, imparting them in fun ways such as through animation and cartoons. Series such as ‘Stories of the Companions’ and ‘Story of the Prophets’ remain a popular way for children to learn about the lives, struggles and achievements of the most important figures in Islam.
Quiz shows such as the animated 5 Pillars Game Show and 5 Pillars Pop Quiz provide a great way for families to learn more about the five pillars of Islam. Children of all ages can have fun joining in to guess the answers and even adults are sure to pick up some interesting facts from the ‘did you know?’ segments.
National Qira’ah Competition (https://islamchannel.tv/video-category/national-qiraah-competition/)
This competition is undoubtedly one of the most popular Muslim kids’ TV shows in the UK, inviting participants from across the country to call in and recite a surah from the Quran, the holy book of Islam, demonstrating their Tajweed skills.
Participants are given feedback and tips for improvement by our expert sheikhs and the best are invited to take part in the heats, which lead to our prestigious national final. Learning how to recite the Quran is a key skill in Islam – for children to see this skill being celebrated encourages them to practise and improve further.
Islamic Art Activities for Muslim Kids
TV is often accused of playing a part in stopping children from being creative, but Islam Channel, on the contrary, encourages children to explore all facets of their Islamic heritage.
IC Kids ‘Be Creative’ shows focus on Islamic art, showing children how to reproduce the intricate geometric patterns which have such great significance in the architecture and design of Islam. For children, this provides an important opportunity for them to learn the skills of concentration, focus, attention to detail and patience, as well as discovering how to produce beautiful works of art.
