Good Deed Series - 10. Good Deeds and Body Parts

  • (To the tune of ‘Castle in the Cloud’):

These little feet are for Allah
They are to stand up for salah
They are to walk to Karbala
These little feet are for Allah

These little feet can skip and run
Kick a ball
And have some fun
They’re not to stamp
They’re not to kick
When we are mad,
Not one little bit

These little feet are for Allah… (repeat first stanza)

These little hands are for Allah
They are to raise up for dua
They are to help mom and baba
These little hands are for Allah

These little hands can hug and clap,
Color a picture
Wave and snap
They’re not to scratch,
They’re not to hit
They’re not to snatch
They don’t like it one bit!

These little feet are for Allah… (repeat first stanza)

This little mouth is for Allah
It is to whisper our duas
It is to say Subhanallah!
This little mouth is for Allah

This little mouth can say thank you
Smile, speak truth,
Ask how do you do?
It doesn’t shout
It doesn’t scream
It doesn’t say
Things which are mean

This little mouth is for Allah… (repeat first stanza)

  • Following on from the rhymes, children can pick out a shape/body part and think of what kind of good deed it can be used to do.
  • They can also play ‘Yusuf says’ (like Simon Says) with a puppet doll, and ask the children to act out doing good deeds with their different body parts.
  • Children could decorate a cutout of ‘me’ and then use little dot stickers next to each body part every time they did a good deed.
  • Another activity to go with the same concept is to trace out body outlines of the children on butcher paper and then brainstorm and write in the right way to use each body part and the wrong way. This can be connected with showing gratitude to Allah swt by honoring the blessings He gives. One mum said: “They gave some funny answers like bottoms are not for sitting on people!”
  • This can also be done with chalk on concrete, etc.
