‘LilMuslim’ is an Islamic smartphone app designed for Muslim kids and assists them in learning Arabic alphabets in a fun environment. It features a wonderful user interface with fun environment, cute characters and games through which learning Arabic becomes all the faster and easier for them.
There are three environments in this game (or educational app) which are briefly described below:
The app starts by displaying a house with the word ‘enter’ on its creaking door. Upon tapping it, you are taken to a screen where you choose between three different levels upon swiping across the screen. At first, you are only able to access the 1st level and the later levels are unlocked as you progress in the game. The aim in all the levels is the same: to identify the Arabic alphabets but the environment changes.
The first level is very simple and easy. A little cute creature appears on the screen which asks you to spot a certain alphabet. The required alphabet also appears next to it. This way, it becomes very easy as the child just has to match it to the ones on the balloons. Above it, there are balloons dangling around and one of them contains the alphabet that it wants you to find. You have to burst the right balloon by tapping on it.
After clearing the first level, you can play the second level and in this level you are given a hint for the alphabet that you have to find. You have to then select that alphabet by tapping on it. In this level, the alphabets appear revolving on a wheel. Hence, this game is also a great tool for the hand to eye coordination.
In third level, you have to find the alphabets hidden in a park and you are given no hint for the alphabet. The child has to inspect the park closely and tap the respective ones that he has to find.
Lilmuslim is a greatly helpful app as learning Arabic is the first step towards learning the Holy Quran. It is especially helpful for those parents who sometimes don’t get the time to play with their children, they can now give a smartphone to their children and they will be amused till the game ends.
