Wk beg. 01.03.21
This week we are continuing to look at the 5 pillars of Islam. Can you remember what we mean by the 5 pillars of Islam? The 5 pillars of Islam are 5 things a Muslim must do in order to lead a happy life.
Take a look at the website below and it will give you an insight into the 5 pillars of Islam. Today we are going to be exploring pillar one, the Shahadah.
The First Pillar of Islam is the 'Shahadah', the basic statement of the Islamic faith and the declaration of faith, stating that you believe in Allah and his final Prophet. 'There is no God except Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah'.
Its a belief to shout and whisper and the belief is whispered to newborn babies by their fathers and is shouted from minarets (a tower by a mosque) to call muslims to prayer 5 times daily.
Have a think about the duties that you have to do on a daily basis, once a month or once a year. What are those duties and which ones do you find difficult?
Have a look at the powerpoint below to gather more information about the first pillar of Islam and discuss some of the points and questions raised.

Carrying on Islam from last half term, can you remember the name of the prophet who founded the religion Islam?
This term we will be exploring how the 5 pillars of Islam are essential in the life of a Muslim. Firstly, I would like us to think about our lives and how life is like a journey! Do we need a guide in our lives? What key things happen in our lives? (Think about as you grow older). How do we know which is the correct path to take in oUr life? Who will travel with us in our lives? Think about these questions. On the worksheet below, there is a road and on the road, draw or write the key things you may do or come across in you life and think about the things you may do or achieve as you grow older. You may want to draw different routes off the road, these may be different paths you may take in your lives (for example, you may go to college when you finish school or you may get a job as soon as you finish. You may get married, you might choose to travel. Think about all of the different options you may have!).
Will your path in life be the same as somebody else? We are all different and may encounter different things. Some of you may learn to ride a bike, some of you may break a bone. We all will have different oppourtunites and we may choose to make our own opportunities. What things will you need to help you? How will you know you are making the right decisions?

Can you remember the prophets name who founded the religion of Islam?
He is a very important person and makes a difference to the life of a muslim. The stories that we have looked at over the last few weeks say alot about what the Prophet Muhammad said and did, and these stories teach muslims a lesson. What morals did you learn from the stories? Did they teach you any lessons? Muhammad cared for all Allah's creatures (the tiny ants), Muhammad forbid cruelty to any animal (the camel) and Muhammad believed in justice for all (Bilal). The Prophet Muhammad and teachings are still important today. Take a look at the powerpoint in which will give you some more useful information and then have a think about why muslims still follow and talk of the prophet Muhammad today? Then think about somebody you admire and who is very important to your life. Why are they important? What things do they teach you? Are they a positive role model? Then complete the activity on purple mash.

What is the prophets name who founded the religion Islam?
Last week we looked at how Muhammad cared for all Allah's creatures, this week we are exploring another story about Bilal, a slave who would not be quiet! Read the story below and think about how you would feel if you were Bilal? Muhammad was famous for his fairness, forgiveness and strength and believed in justice for all. This week get creative, you can use paints, felts, crayons etc and create a picture of the important message of the story. What will you show in your picture? Will you show the importance of freedom or standing up in what you believe in or fairness? Make sure you take photo of your creation and post on the blog or email via purplemash.

The Prophet Muhammad cared for all Allah's creatures, from the tiny ants to the largest of animals.

God (Allah) chose Muhammad to lead his people because he was an ‘honest, kind and trustworthy’ man.
Have a look at the powerpoint and think about 'What makes a good leader?'
Think about people around you, people on the television and people at school. Can you think about the qualities in which the people around you have, in order for them to be good at leading. This person could be a teacher, a football coach or even the prime minister!
Once you have thought about this, have a go at the 2do set on purple mash or draw yourselves an outline of a person, and inside the person, list all the qualities that are needed to be a 'good' leader.
