Everything you need to know about our Company


1. It Gives Kids an Interest in Family History

For a lot of kids, history is just a boring subject at school. It’s a list of facts about things that happened a long time ago, and kids are all about now and the future. However, when you study your own family history, it helps put things in perspective for your children.

Perhaps you have a great-great-great-grandfather who was a Shaikh, or fought in the War defending his country or a great-great-uncle who was a sailor. Suddenly, these aren’t just stories about people who are long dead. They are stories about your own flesh and blood. The soldiers who marched through intense heat and freezing cold aren’t strangers or were involved in some political party or perhaps were a businessman; they’re family. Learning about Islamic or world history is a lot more fun if you’re involved in some way – and knowing your family tree can help bring history to life.

2. It Gives Kids an Interest in Their Own Background

When kids learn about their own family tree, it helps them understand more about who they are. They can see that their dark hair and color of skin, or even red hair and freckles go all the way back to great-great-grandmother Kadijah. Or perhaps your child is the only short person in the family – but so was great-great-great-grandmother Fatima. Now they’re no longer alone.

Learning about their family history can help children develop a better sense of who they are and why they look and act the way they do. It also enhances their feeling of stability and security as they see they are part of something bigger than themselves.

3. It Helps Them Remember People Who are Important to the Family

As children grow up, family members pass away. They may forget what great-aunt Amina looks like or how grandfather Ayub laughed. While you can tell stories about family members who died when the kids were young or even before they were born, these stories become more meaningful if they can be placed in correct association.

For example, say your grandfather was one of eight children. Your child may only know or remember two or three of them. Without Islamic family tree to help them keep track of who was who, other people’s names lose their meaning and place over time. With Islamic Family tree, when Grandpa talks about Uncle Karim, your kids will understand exactly who he means and pay more attention to those stories. Instead of just words, they will be able to imagine their granddad as a boy, sitting on Uncle Karim’s lap and listening to his funny jokes.

You don’t have to create an extravagant or complicated family tree for it to be of value to the kids. A simple diagram will work wonders to help them make the right connections. However, the more information you can add (including photos and videos!) will help them remember who this person was and why they are part of the family.

So let's Sign Up have fun and enjoy with the children for years to come.....
