Months in Islam nasheed

This nasheed is very special to me..I sing it to myself whenever I need to recall the months in islam or when im trying to remember what comes next. My sister does this too (out loud sometimes) and it’s the only reason why we both know our Islamic months. I’m sure many people who know the 12 months, know so thanks to this nasheed.

Check it out by clicking below and get your kids to listen and learn it so they become familiar with the Isalmic months too!
