Islam Assembly Sample Text:

Narrator:         Good morning and welcome to our assembly on Islam.

Let’s start with what Islam means.

Child 1:           Islam is the Arabic word for submission.

Narrator:         I’m guessing, submission to a god?

Child 2:           One god – Allah!

Narrator:         And the origins of this religion?

Child 3:           The religion started AD 610 when Muhammed heard the word of God through the Arch Angel Gabriel.

Narrator:         And where was this?

(Child 3 holds up map of the world)

Child 4:           (Pointing to Saudi Arabia) Here, in Saudi Arabia, in the city of Mecca.

Narrator:         And this Muhammed – tell us a bit about him.

Child 5:           He was born AD 570, at Mecca.

Child 6:           His family were very poor and he was orphaned at an early age.

Child 7:           However, he became rich as a caravan leader

Narrator:         (Looking puzzled) Why would you need to lead a caravan? Don’t you just pull them behind your car?

Child 8:           No, not that kind of caravan. These were camels, led across the trade routes, carrying goods to be sold at market.

Narrator:         Aha! Camel caravans! Now I get you! Back to Muhammed!

Child 9:           He married his employer, a rich widow called Khadija

Child 10:         But Muhammed preferred meditation and contemplation, peace and quiet, to the company of the rich.

Narrator:         (Sighing) Ah! Peace and quiet – that’s what we all need!

Child 11:         Well, it certainly helped Muhammed on that mountainside.

Narrator:         Wait a minute – mountainside, you say?

Child 12:         Mount Hira to be precise.

Child 13:         And it was here that an angel appeared to him and revealed Allah’s words.

Narrator:         Which were?

Child 14:         Oh far too many to remember here!

Narrator:         But Muhammed did?

Child 14:         (Indignantly) Yes, but he was a prophet! I’m not!

Child 15:         And he wrote down everything he was told. There’s a lot to be said for doing that!

Narrator:         Quite so. I never seem to have a notebook and pen to hand when I need one!
