Du’a Bulletin Board

October 28, 2009 at 9:41 am 14 comments

Du’a is important to us as Muslims since it’s a form of worship.

We have found a great idea to reinforce/teach children to make du’a frequently through out the day, insha Allah.

We have two different layouts/board displays to share with you to help you get those wheels turning,insha Allah.

Layout 1

The first display is the traditional bulletin board layout with border that surrounds the board and contents to fill the inner board with the beneficial reminders and tools to help keep on track with du’a,insha Allah.

 We have also included the files to the specific Islamic Bulletin Boards to make building your board much easier.

 Use some or all, it’s up to you!

Border accent file: Accent decos du’a
File for Best time for Making Du’a: Best time for making Du’a
File for Reminders for Making Du’a: Reminders for making du’a

The Daily Du’a tracker and the Du’a cards at the bottom of the bulletin board. The du’a cards are in a clear pocket made out of plastic protective sheet covers that you can buy at your local office supply store or another idea can be to use plastic storage bags if you want the same look.

Umm Ibrahim here, this is our version of the bulletin board. I am so not as artistic as my bud, Umm Abdul Basir, so this is a much simpler, less artistic version, but masha Allah, the board is in use and has been so handy right from the start!

I haven’t been able to get a lot of school supplies yet after our last move (this summer), and am needing to conserve on the printer ink for the present, so I opted not to include the wonderful border.  Its hard to see but the items I have included are as follows:

The awesome duaa cards (so many uses: matching activity, flashcards, memory aids, so do check those out even if you don’t do a board

Reminders for making duaa (in the top middle). We make it a point to try to make duaas in the last hour of Jumuah (Friday) and so this is a handy reminder.  We don’t make the duaas together, but I will call the kids and tell them time to make duaas.  So now, I have this section of the board to quickly go over before they go off on their own to make duaas. One thing I has started to do, was to have them take a quick little “minute” just at some point of the day (like in the evening) and sit down and make duaa. So they look at the board to make sure they do as many of the things in the reminder section as they can.

Duaa Tracker

Duaas to make – In this section, I have the little scroll on which we can jot down duaas that we want to make.  In addition to the scroll, we have some premade mini scrolls which have a picture and a generic duaa (such as heal _______; reminding us to make duaa for someone sick; preserve our health, give us _______________; give us Jannah, etc. These were made to encourage us to not just make duaa for material things, I guess you can call them “dua’a prompts

And that’s our board, masha Allah.

It really helps to keep us on track as well as make the drab wall more appealing, masha Allah.

    Assalamu Alaykum Sisters,
    I am knew to making bulletin boards. I am making the Dua one for our first board. This may seem like a really stupid question but what do you use for the boards? Poster Boards??

    • 3. talibiddeenjr  |  August 8, 2010 at 8:39 pm

      wa alaykum us salaam,

      I use poster board paper generally for my board backgrounds. Umm Abdul Basir suggested using cardboard if no poster board was available. Sometimes, I just put stuff on the wall if I have neither. 😉

    Assalamu Alaykum…

    MASHA ALLAH!!!! May Allah reward you all! I have been homeschooling for a year and did not have islamic curriculum I was lloking for one online when I came across your site.
    I was wondering what plastic did you use to protect the dua cards?

      Yes, you sure can, inshah Allah.

    AAWW Dear Sisters, this is an amazing resource and may Allah (s) reward you both for it – and for your blogs and homeschooling ideas which I find fabulous and inspiring! I cannot make the links for the dua board work, can you please check that they are OK? I notice everyone else seems to be able to download them OK and I can with the borders etc, but not the Dua Board links. Barrakallafik to you both from me and my children.

    Thank you for the wonderful ideas, stuff and sharing with us here

  • 11. Umm Nassim  |  October 29, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    MashAllah, this is a wonderful project (Islamic Bulletin Boards, that is)! I love the du’aa cards and printed them…however, it is sometimes hard for smaller children, who read but not Arabic to learn something by heart…a transliteration would be tremendously helpful (I know you two need additional ideas to keep your creative juices flowing)…:-)

    • 12. ummabdulbasir  |  October 29, 2009 at 9:10 pm

      As Saamu Alaykum,
      Dear Sis, Umm Ibrahim has brought this to my attention, and we plan on making them with the transliteration soon insha Allah. Jazakallahu Khair for your encouraging words!
