38. Illuminated Quran:  Sad

This surah speaks about the creation of Adam (a).  If you would like to learn more about the story of Prophet Adam (a) there is a chapter concerning him and his creation in the introduction called In the Beginning  and the first chapter following in My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil.

After creating Adam (a) Allah (s) told the Angels to bow down to this new creation. Iblis refused to bow and so he was cursed.

Discussion question:  why did Allah (s) tell the Angels to bow to Adam (a)?  Why did Iblis refuse?

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