We designed this for our children mainly out of need – to improve their Arabic handwriting mainly while learning ahadith, but seeing a vast public interest, we are making this public (as a digital pdf – JUST the copywork part) before the official release! You can use these inspiring ahadith to develop self-motivation among kids to learn the basics of their deen and the knowledge of their Rabb in shaa Allah.

Arabic and English Copywork

Copywork is an exercise of copying words from a written example. For younger kids, copywork may just be copying the letters of the alphabet and single words. Older children may copy sentences, paragraphs, and eventually entire pages. Reading and copying classical literature familiarizes children with authentic knowledge, grammar principles, the beauty of fus’haa Arabic, and other key aspects of effective writing. This often leads to an improvement in their own composition and communication skills. Even without directly teaching it, copywork exposes your children to spelling, vocabulary, and other mechanics of grammar. As the child copies good writing, the hope is that the child will adopt the language skills found in the sample (and with Allah’s mercy, the morals within as well).

☆ Arabic tracing

So it’s easier for kids to read the text and practice writing it. We have chosen small parts of ahadith with one complete message so that it doesn’t become physically or mentally exhausting for the child (because they may not be able to retain the precious information if we unload too much on them). Copywork requires close attention to details, such as harakaat of the letters, that may be ignored when reading through the hadith quickly. We have also been trying to memorise these short phrases (in Arabic) to not only apply the ahadith in their lives more easily but to also familiarise ourselves with the language. The physical act of writing stimulates muscle memory and helps kids transfer letter formation and spelling into their long-term memory (writing by hand has been shown to engage parts of the brain involved in learning and memory). Check out how we initially started with this process (slowly and gradually): 1-word ahadith for kids to learn, 2-word ahadith for kids to learn.

☆ English tracing

So it’s easier for kids to read the text and practice writing it in both print and cursive. Children who can write in cursive have an easier time reading print as well. Cursive continues to be an essential skill from a cognitive standpoint for several reasons, including:

  • Sensory-motor coordination
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Fine motor skills development
  • Dynamic brain hemisphere engagement
  • Thinking memory
  • Visual recognition requirements present an expansive range of letter representation

☆ Hadith explanation (with practical examples)

The aim of this section is to enable the child to understand the Hadith while understanding practical kid-friendly ways of implementing/acting on them through mini-stories. Some parts of this are simplified for kids. A child may still need the help of an adult, depending on their age. This will also help you learn with the child in shaa Allah.

☆ Hadith activity

Copywork focuses on visual learning but children may actually learn best when the knowledge comes through all three pathways to the brain instead of just one — visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. The more senses we involve, the more learning occurs. This part of the journal takes into account that none of the sacred texts are depicted in a way that is disrespectful. The activities are based on the main theme/concept of the hadith to actively involve the child in the lessons, so you can keep his or her attention with very little effort in shaa Allah.

☆ Reflection section / Hadith Journaling

The Hadith Journaling / Reflection Section has been given because the purpose of reading (or even memorising) the ahadith is to reflect upon it and apply it in our lives. If you’re using it with a young child, please make sure that you supervise them and help them understand how to respect the hadith books. They may experiment with different materials and use the creative design on the given page to embed their learning, but they should avoid illustrating the hadith with animate beings or the world of the unseen (Allah, Prophets, Angels, Satan, Hell, Heaven, etc.).

☆ Certificate

The certificate at the end of the book is to encourage a child to keep going forward in their journey towards gaining knowledge of Hadith. You can either use it for writing practice or simply for completion milestones of understanding by writing the child’s name in the middle strip (and better yet, for memorisation of these ahadith).

Reviews of 40-Hadith Journals for Children


  1. Slm sister pray u r in the best of emaan.
    Please can you inform how to buy the digital Hadith book
    InsA .
    JzkAllahu khairan

    • Walaikum assalam. Hope you’re doing well. Jazakillah khair for reaching out. It’s not officially published yet. Sorry for the delay. We’re hoping to get it up and running by Eid ul Adha 2023 in shaa Allah 🌸 Nonetheless, we will announce it through the newsletter whenever it’s available for purchase. You can sign up through the top bar on the home page.

    • Assalam u alaikum. They have not been officially printed in bulk yet – but soon bi’idhnillah! Stay tuned (you can follow us on social media or sign up to our newsletter to stay updated in shaa Allah). Jazakillah khairan katheera for your patience and support.

  2. Asalamu alaikum wa ramatullahi wa barakatuh Dear Sisters, I got so excited to see the PDF option until I realized it was only partial content and not full content of your work. I live in KSA so it is not easy to get the real thing (in print). Alhamdulelah we have juz 30 and 29 from you so far, though. In’sha’Allah we will get this as well. In print I guess as the PDF would be pretty much useless if not complete. Jazakallahu khair for all your hard work noneless.

    • Walaikum assalam wa ramatullahi wa barakatuh. I completely understand your frustration sis. The scholars involved in rechecking are still going through the material and we did not want to publish the explanations, related stories, and activities without their approval. It’s the matter of Hadith, hence we take it seriously. A lot of people (especially homeschoolers like me) were still interested in the tracing and copywork part of the book hence we made that available. Jazakillah khairan katheera for your kind support. It means a lot.

      • Asalamu alaikum wa ramatullahi wa barakatuh Dear Sisters, please kindly let me know if the PDF contains the full book now in’sha’Allah. Did the scholars finished going through the material ? Praying that I will be able to purchase the PDF (but if full content is available there now) in’sha’Allah.
        May Allah bless you

        • Walaikum assalam waramatullahi wa barakatuh sis. Jazakillah khair for your interest in our products. Your support helps us keep working on creating more authentic resources for the ummah. We are not allowed to put the full content as pdf due to scholars being involved in the project (which is why we never made juz journals available as pdf as well – even though it is more beneficial in terms of less work and more gain, but we respect the opinion of people who have dedicated time and effort in this). Need duas to get all three hadith journals (hadith qudsi, hadith nawawi, and shama’il al-muhammadiyyah) in print once we have enough funds in shaa Allah. Thank you for your understanding <3
