I wanted to teach my daughter the 99 names of Allah in a fun and creative way, and turning this learning activity into a crafting session was definitely fun! My daughter and I decided to go for a flower in the pot because A. She loves plants and B. It was easy and quick and C. Because this way she can take out a flower, learn the names, put it back into the flower pot, and then choose another flower! Win – Win – Win!

We plan on choosing a flower from the pot and learning the names and the meaning of the names from one petal each week. Since there are about 4-5 names on each petal, this seems like a realistic approach.

Here’s how we put together our 99 Names of Allah Flower Pot:

Print off, or write the 99 names of Allah. Glue the names onto petals cut out from construction paper. I chose to glue on the names in groups of 4 and 5, thus saving some time.

Use a cardboard box (or cereal box) to cut out strips to use as the stems. You can colour the stems green using markers, crayons, etc. We also used some shiny tape on the stems for some sparkle!

  1. You’re a creative person, Sis ما شا ء لله
    My son also trying to memorize Asmaul Husna, but he’s using MP3 player. 😉 Has your daughter memorized it too?

    • Jazak’Allah Khair sis <3 she is just starting to learn the names with meanings, and also learning to read the Quran and memorize so e Surahs Masha'Allah 🙂 Really, the younger they are, the easier it is for them to learn everything, Subhan'Allah <3 Masha'Allah your son has learned just by listening! I'm the opposite, I have to take notes and read over and over again to memorize something; it takes a lot if effort, lol!

  2. This is such a great project. It’s especially cool since this year we are in Spring leading up to Ramadan! This could be a cool homeschool lesson incorporating the seasons and Allah as a creator. Mashaa Allah. Love this!

  3. Mashallah…what a great thought…I’m glad that I came across your blog…you are such a creative person…may Allah reward you with more creativity and we keep on taking help from you…:)
