We have been learning about the Holy Spirit, reading some stories from the Bible and thinking about what these mean to Christian people.
This week we going to find out about another religion, called Islam. The people who follow this faith are called Muslims and it is a special time for them at the moment, called Ramadan.
Watch this clip and try to answer these questions. (You don’t have to write the answers, you can tell somebody at home.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9U8T8x1AhQ&feature=emb_title
Can you remember the name that Muslims use for God? What about their holy book? What is the name of the prophet who told the story? How do you think the camel’s owner felt when the prophet told him to take better care of his camel? Why do you think he felt like this? What do you think?
The story shows why Muslims think it is important to care for all creatures, whatever their size. When you go outside, have a look and see if you can spot any tiny creatures. Watch them for a little while and think about the story. You could try making a “bug hotel” to look after the tiny creatures you find.
