3. Illuminated Quran: House of Imran

The third surah of the Quran concerns the House of Imran or the family of Zachariah (a) and Sayyindina Mariam.

The surah mentions the dedication of Sayyidina Mariam to the temple and a miracle she experienced there.  If you would like to read about Zachariah (a) to your children there is a chapter concerning his story in My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil.  

Discussion question:  when Zaccariah (a) saw that Sayyindina Mariam had fruits from Allah (s) in her prayer niche why did he decide to ask Allah (s) for a child?

Another miracle mentioned in this surah is where Prophet Isa (a) made a bird of clay and brought it to life which we now know as the  bat.

Discussion question:  why do you think Prophet Isa (a) created a bat?  What do you know about bats?

Illustration: for this chapter I decided to paint a prayer niche to represent the niche of Sayyidina Mariam.

Please share your ideas for sharing the tafseer of Quran with children.
