37.Illuminated Quran: The Rangers

This surah recounts the story of Yunus (a).  If you would like to read his story to your children there is a chapter concerning him in My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil.

Yunus (a) was asked to guide people but he found it too difficult and he left the people and was lost at sea and swallowed by a great fish or whale.

Discussion question:  why did Yunus (a) leave the people he was trying to guide?  How was Yunus delivered from belly of the whale?  What happened after Yunus (a) repented?  What should we do if we make a mistake?  When we feel isolated and lost what can we do to come out of it?


Image:  this is an image of the whale that swallowed Yunus (a) and it is based on the illustration for the story of Yunus (a) from My Little Lore of Light.

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