Abstract

This research elaborates on utilization of cartoons as a tool of religious instruction for children. Cartoons can be used as an instrument for children’s mental development because a child’s mind is like a plain slate, what you write leaves a long-lasting impact. Cartoons have become a favorite activity of children and they spend most of their leisure time on watching cartoons. Children’s interest in cartoons also impacts their mind according to the content and concept of cartoons. For this aim, cartoons with religious instructions were shown to children and interview of some children’s parents and teachers were done in Sheikhupura. The data collected from the observations and interviews done qualitatively for this research shows that cartoons are a very effective source of religious instruction for children. Children not only understand these instructions easily but also try to follow them.
