Tasbih for Kids

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah said,
"He who recites after every prayer: Subhan Allah (Allah is free from imperfection) 33 times; Alhamdu lillah (praise be to Allah) 33 times; Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest) 33 times; and completes the hundred with: La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa `ala kulli shai'in Qadir (there is no true god except Allah. He is One and He has no partner with Him. His is the sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Omnipotent), will have all his sins pardoned even if they may be as large as the foam on the surface of the sea.''

You can make a small tasbih (Muslim rosary) with your child. Let him/her to paint the beads and string on the rope. We used different types of macaroni for this tasbih. There are 33 beads here. You can paint them 11 beads in one colour, 11 beads in different colour and 11 beads are in another colour. So your child can easily distinguish dhikr "Subhan'Allah, Alhamdulillah, Allah u Akbar" and say 11 times each after performing salah.
