I put together our favorite sheep projects since they play an important role in Islamic heritage, our prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was a shepherd.
According to our holy book, the Quran, when Abraham (pbuh) was about to sacrifice Ishmael (pbuh), a ram was sacrificed as a substitute.
Eid al-Adha is a major annual festival in Islam in which sheep (or other animals) are sacrificed in remembrance of this act. Eid Al-Adha is due to occur on September 24th, 2015.
Sheep are also occasionally sacrificed to commemorate important secular events, such as births or weddings, in Arab cultures.
Over the years, I have created several sheep posts here on the ACraftyArab blog with my daughters and amassed a number over on my Pinterest board.
I have collected them below, along with a few others, so that you can enjoy making some creative sheep projects too.
I have included images from my crafts, but do not have copyright on other images so I am unable to add them below. For visuals of all these tutorials, feel free to visit Crafty Arab 99 Creative Projects.
