Review: Omar and Hana Cartoon Series


omar-and-hana

Omar and Hana is a welcome addition to the ever increasing number of Islamic Cartoons and Programmes available online for Muslim Children.

The Malaysian based cartoon series is based around two siblings, Omar and Hana, and their parents who teach them about Islam. It also features other characters including their friends Sufi, Sara and Faris and their teachers Ustadh Musa and Miss Laila.

Their unique style, their use of high quality graphics, and the fun educational content of their songs sets them apart from the other Islamic Children’s Programmes that are available out there. What’s more is that you can watch all their Cartoons for free on their YouTube channel.

Their songs are educational and topics based, covering a whole array of topics including the Importance of Salah, Caring for Orphans, not wasting food or water, being good guests and hosts, sharing toys and playing together, fasting, going to the Masjid and a whole lot more besides.

They have very cleverly used popular nursery rhymes and converted them into Islamic Songs and songs with good morals and teachings. Take for example their version of Jack and Jill went up the Hill which is called Fasting is Fun, or their rendition of she’ll be coming through the mountains when she comes as Let’s go to the Masjid.

Another excellent feature of the cartoons is  the way in which each of their cartoons end with either a verse of the Qur’an or a Hadith of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) related to the topic of the cartoon / song. This helps to reinforce the message and teaching of each cartoon but also relates it directly back to the Qur’an and Sunnah.

Check out their latest collaboration with the famous Nasheed artist Zain Bhikha and American Comedian Omar Reghan.

These Cartoons are a great way of introducing young children to the teachings of Islam and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
