Masaajid & Colour Domino Games

Assalamu alaikum,

This coming week we are going to play two games insha'Allah: Masaajid Dominoes and Colour Dominoes. I've had these games ready for a few days but I had to check to make sure it was permissible in Islam because I am aware that some games (such as those that use dice, exchanging money, betting, etc.) are not permissible. Alhamdulillah, the Sheikh said that these games were permissible and waallahu alim.

Both games are easy and fun so children four years old and up may enjoy them insha'Allah. The children simply match the masjid or colour to the piece that is on the table. For example, in the game below, the piece that began the game was a piece that had the same masjid on each side. The next piece that was placed on the table had to have at least one side that had the same masjid as the first piece. So the game extends out from there with the children matching the pieces based on the masaajid needed insha'Allah. The colour game is played in the same way, only matching colours instead of masaajid insha'Allah.

Here is the Masaajid Domino Game:

This is the Colour Domino Game:

The colour domino game can be used to help children learn colours and reinforce their existing knowledge of colours insha'Allah. I do not doubt that you all will also find other great ideas to use with these games insha'Allah and I invite you to share insha'Allah (smile). 

I printed both games on card stock but I also glued them to poster board just because I wanted extra thickness insha'Allah. I did not laminate the pieces of this game. I think the card stock on the poster board should be sufficient insha'Allah.

Here are the files insha'Allah:

Enjoy insha'Allah!
