Islamic Art for Kids 15 Colouring Pages Download & Print

I’ve got some time off from work, so I decided to create lots of lovely Islamic art for kids to colour in, you’ll find very nice Islamic patterns which are simple and also complex, I’ve also included mosques and other types of Islamic art for kids. Just pick the ones that you like, click on the download button next to it and print, simple as that!

But first if you want to know reasons for why Muslims drew Islamic art then read on or just go straight to the download section below where you’ll find all 15 of the Islamic arts for kids ready and waiting just for you! 🙂

Islamic art is very different to those found in Europe. Art in Islam is dominated by extravagant geometric designs usually with patterns, colour, texture and calligraphy. Islamic art is different because it is not purely decorative but it has a deeper meaning usually a spiritual one, one that reminds the viewer of God.

From an early age Muslim children are taught to avoid drawing humans or animals or anything that has life because it isn’t allowed for more than one reason but primarily because a hadith states that it isn’t allowed.

Calligraphy has great importance in Islam as the Quran and other Islamic scriptures are written in calligraphy. Through skilled use of needed tools such as a compass and a ruler beautiful and harmonious combinations of colour and designs can be achieved, examples of these can be seen in display in many parts of the World even till this day.

It is also worth a mention that earlier Muslims created art not only for viewing but for the sake of obeying the Prophet (saw), as all his commands and recommendations where obeyed fully.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Allah likes that when you do anything, you do it excellently.” Sahih Muslim

With all that and more in mind, I’ve already mentioned before that I have created loads of Islamic art for kids, now it is time for you to download, print and use it as colouring in pages for your children.

If you are a religious education teacher you’ll also love this for all your key stage 2, 3 and 4 pupils, it can used as a great resource whether you use it as a starter or main. All the files are in pdf format and most of the art are in the A4 size only three are in A5.

    اَلسَّلاَ مُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
    جزاك الله خيرا وبارك الله فيك, I would request to do a bit of research on the names of Islamic Months. These Months existed even before Islam and are and were Arab Months. The name of first Islamic Month is Al-Muharram / مُحرَّم and not المُحَرَّم . The (AL) is part of the name and cannot be separated. Please see the evidence from this hadeeth and same is classical arab peotry
    http://sunnah.com/urn/43390
    And there are more mistakes in the pdf, here are the correct spelling
    أَسْماءُ الشَّهورِ الْعَرَبِيةِ
    1. Muḥarram الْمُحَرَّمُ
    2. Ṣafar صَفَر
    3. Rabīʿ al-Awwal رَبِيعُ الأَوَّل
    4. Rabīʿ al-Ākhir رَبِيعُ الآخِر
    5. Jumādā al-Ūlā جُمَادَى الأُولى
    6. Jumādā al-Ākhira جُمَادَى الآخِرَة
    7. Rajab رَجَب
    8. Shaʿbān شَعْبان
    9 Ramaḍān رَمَضان
    10. Shawwāl شَوَّال
    11. Dhū al-Qaʿda ذُو الْقَعْدَةِ
    12. Dhū al-Ḥijja ذُو الْحِجَّةِ
    Please note, any language cannot be separated from its culture. In Arab world unless there is something THIRD, they would not say something as SECOND as رَبيع الثاني.So know the correct name of this month is رَبيع الآخر Rabī‘ al-Ākhir.
