Musa: Qarun

Tonight we learned about a man from the Banu Israil called Qarun.  He was wealthy and did not want to follow Musa (a) or give sadaqa (charity).  My son wanted to know why he wouldn’t share his wealth.  I told him that some people think that if they give charity it will diminish their wealth instead of increase it. 

Musa (a) ordered the earth to swallow Qarun and his wealth because he told lies and was punished. 

Please share your ideas teaching children about the lives of the prophets.
