Monday Assembly - 6th July Islam
This week we are thinking about the important value of Tolerance of Different Cultures and Religions.
Tolerance means that we are able to accept that people may belive different things to us and still be able to live together happily. The best way to become tolerant of other people's beliefs is to learn more about them.
You may be learning a little bit more about some parts of Islam in your learning at home and at school over the next week or so. This follows on from the work that you did last year - what can you remember learning about Islam already?
Sara is an eleven-year-old Muslim from London. She wants to be a fashion designer when she grows up. In this video, she introduces us to her life and family using her own video camera.
More from Sara
In this video, Sara gives us a brief guide to her religion by describing the Five Pillars of Islam, the main rules Muslims try to live by.
Something to think and talk about:
- Sara told us about The 5 Pillars of Islam. Can you remember what they were? Which one do you think is the hardest one to keep? Why?
- Sara says: ‘Pillars hold things up and hold you up to be a good Muslim.’ What are your foundations for being a good person?
A prayer to say together:
I know that I am very lucky and have a lot to thank you for.
Help me to think of others and their needs.
Help me to recognise that I can share what I have if I need to.
And help me to learn to do this without being reminded.
