KS2 RE - Teacher's Guide to Islam



In this programme we explore the basic elements of Islamic faith that any primary teacher would need to know by spending 48 hours in the company of the Sheikh family from Birmingham.

We join the family as they celebrate Eid Ul Fitr - the festival that marks the end of Ramadan - the annual holy month that unites all Muslims in fasting, feasting, worship and prayer. The 30-day fast is called Sawm, one of the five pillars of Islam, the others being Shahadah, Salah, Zakah and Hajj.

The Sheikh family guide us through some of the rituals and daily routines associated with these basic principles such as answering the call to prayer, gift giving, and Quran lessons.

Key points:

  • RE lecturer, Imran Mogra , explains how Islam is a "way of life"
  • A look at the central tenets of the Muslim faith
  • Children discuss their own beliefs and expand their knowledge of other religions
