Angel Jibreel Delivers a Message - 30 Day Craft Challenge

Angel Jibreel Delivers a Message - 30 Day Craft Challenge

Download Angel Jibreel Template Here

Salam crafters! Tonight I am sharing our craft for Day 18. It comes just in time for the Nights of Power (Laylat-al-Qadr). I talked to my children about the importance of these upcoming nights. They learned that the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) on one of these nights. The children asked how Allah communicated with our Prophet during these nights. I clarified that all communication was through Angel Jibreel. This lead us to our craft for the day. 

Today we are making a representation (based on our imagination) of Angel Jibreel. The neat thing about this craft is that it is able to wave its wings up and down. This was surely the highlight for them! I drew a template on paper and scanned it for all of you to use! It works very well with all kinds of paper. I am certain that your children will enjoy creating this craft with you!

  • Angel Jibreel Template (download here)
  • Scissors
  • Single Hole Punch - or anything sharp to poke a hole
  • Glue - can be school glue or glue stick
  • Brass plated paper fasteners - these are what I used
  • Optional: decorations such as glitter or stickers 
    This is what we used for our craft today
Watch a YouTube video of this craft Here
  1. Print and cut out the shapes in the Angel Jibraeel Template (here) - You can print these directly on to card stock, or just use printer paper. We used our template to trace onto different coloured papers. 
    This is how the pieces will be arranged
  2. Make holes where identified on the templates
  3. Glue hair and face onto the body as shown and glue on the angel ring as well. Allow to dry for a few minutes
    This is how we glued the hair, face and angel ring on the body
  4. Fasten back piece to the wings as shown - be sure that the round portion is at the back as shown
    First fasten the wings to the back peice
  5. Fasten the body of the angel to the wings - be sure that the round portion is at the front as shown
    Then fasten the wings to the body

  6. Hold on to the body of the angel and slide the back piece up and down to see if the wings are able to wave 
    This shows you the front and back of the craft
    Here's how it looks at the back
  7. Decorate the angel if you wish
  8. Allow your child to play with their craft and tell stories of the Night of Power!
    This craft added some inspiration during the Nights of Power

Please keep my family in your prayers during these special nights! I am praying for all of you. I hope that these crafts will provide useful lessons about these nights of Power. See you tomorrow, inshaAllah!
