I’m an advocate of less screen time for kids. And I believe it’s a good tool to use as a reward for children after completing a chore or lesson, especially if you have an audio-visual learner. But, getting content that is in accordance with our moral values can sometimes be challenging. Therefore, having an exclusive Muslim content at your fingertips will be awesome in the least. And that’s what this post is about.
Ali Huda is a subscription-based education and entertainment TV for Muslim kids, dubbed the Muslim Netflix. I got an invitation to review this amazing app, and I found some good things about it and one or two downsides too. So, which do you want to read first, the good or the other side of the coin? Hehe… anyway, let’s get to it.
What I Loved in It and What I Found Helpful
- With the number of shows on the platform, you’re sure to find a handful that suits you and your child’s needs. From learning Arabic, Quran, Seerah, to Science and manners. And to make it easy, the videos are categorized by age.
- New features are added regularly.
- It works fine on mobile, both Android and iOS apps.
- You can save data by adjusting the video quality. Options available are HD, 720p, 360p, 240p and 144p
- There are no Ads.
- Downloadable videos. You can either stream videos or download to your device.
- Chromecast enabled. This means you can watch on TV once you connect via Chromecast. So, your child can watch without necessarily holding a device.
Now, to the undesirable part of it.
I was disappointed to find some shows contain music. That’s almost the only downside I see. Without that, it would have been perfect. However, my kids could use it, as there are other very useful shows with no music. I sampled the videos and took note of the ones with music, and we avoided them.
How it compares to similar TVs for Muslim kids.
Unlike another popular TV for the Muslim child, Muslim Kids TV, Ali Huda only has videos. It doesn’t have game and worksheets like the former.
So, whether you have lots of screen time or just occasionally, it’s a much better alternative to leaving kids to YouTube.
If you’re pleased to use it even with the con, here is the icing on the cake. You can get an instant access to the videos free, for 7 days.
And the icing gets sweeter and better. They are currently giving a huge discount of 50% off, for the first month. But that will only be on for a limited time. So, it’s best you try it out now, by visiting Ali Huda here.
The promo code to use at checkout is ALIHUDA. After the 7 days free trial, you can continue with them at a fee, on a monthly or yearly basis. And if you wish, you can discontinue anytime.
