This surah mentions Sulayman (a) and the Queen of Sheba. If you would like to read the story of Sulayman (a) to your children there is a chapter concerning him in My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil.
Discussion question: who was the Queen of Sheba?
This surah mentions a part of the story of Sulayman (a) where he passed away and he was held up by his staff so he appeared to be living until a worm ate the staff and it was revealed to the Jinn that Sulayman (a) was dead.
Discussion question: why did Allah (s) make it appear that Sulayman (a) was still living? Why did Allah (s) then reveal that Sulayman (a) had passed away?
Image: this is supposed to represent the staff of Sulayman (a) with the worm that will destroy it.
