We’ve started to teach the kids duaas recently and I really wanted duaa printables for all over the home to reinforce the importance of them before/ after doing anything. I figured if the kids saw these around the house, they would act as reminders for them to read their duaas and improve their Arabic, increase their interest for learning more about Islam and reading the Qur’an. I began to look for duaa printables that I thought would work but unfortunately, didn’t find anything I liked.
So I got in touch with the wonderful Caroline Sarri over at Mina and Moo Designs – she has a wonderful Etsy store with heaps of beautiful printables, nursery art and digital papers – to help me design what I had in mind. There are some duaas I haven’t memorised myself or ones that I forget to read. So I was keen to develop duaa printables with a more ‘adult’ design for those who want to increase their knowledge of duaas, or perhaps those who want a little reminder before they leave the home, or when they’ve finished eating, etc.
We developed two sets of prints – one that you can use whether you have children or not – and another that is designed specifically for children. You could put these at their level around the home, or laminate them and hole punch the corners to pop them all on a ring. That way, you can travel with them and if you have older children, they might prefer it to prints on the walls.
Each print includes:
- What the duaa is for
- The duaa in Arabic
- The transliteration of the duaa in English
- The translation of the duaa in English,
for those who don’t have a good command of Arabic, or those that can read Arabic but can’t translate what they are reading. They are designed to be neutral. So if you do decide to put them up in your home, they won’t clash with any decor!
You’ll learn the duaas for:
- Before you leave the home
- When you enter the home
- After you finish eating
- Before you sleep
- When you wake up
- Before you eat
- When you leave the bathroom
- Before you enter the bathroom
How to print these:
If you’d like smaller versions of the cards to pop on a ring like I’ve shown above, simply click ‘Print’ and using your print layout settings, choose 4 to a page. This usually works well in ‘Landscape’ mode – but choose whatever appeals to you. Once printed, cut them out and laminate them. Hole punch a corner and use an old keyring and there you have it! Portable duaa cards.
If you’d like a larger version to put up around the home like in the example below, click ‘Print’ and using your print layout settings, choose 2 to a page. Again, this usually works well in ‘Landscape’ mode. Once printed, cut them out and laminate them. We put ours up using white tac to avoid damaging the walls.
Eight simple duaas for things that we do every single day. I hope that inshaAllah this resource helps your family learn and memorise these. I also hope that they become an important part of your home, as they will ours, for years to come.
