17. Illuminated Quran: The Night Journey

This surah speaks about the farthest mosque or the Bayt al-Mamur in heaven.

Discussion question:  what happened to the first Kaaba that Adam (a) constructed on earth?


In the surah the night prayer called tahajjud are mentioned.

Discussion question:  why are the prayers we do in the early early morning special?

This surah mentions that the Quran was sent to the Prophet (s) in stages.

Discussion question: why was the Quran sent to the Prophet (s) in parts at different times?

Image:  for this surah I chose to lift two Kaaba composites from the Persian miniature style and two angels flanking the Bayt al-Mamur so that they understand the Angels make tawaf above as we make tawaf on earth.

Please share your ideas for teaching children about the Tafseer of Quran.
