Today we learned about the ninth sign from Allah (s) to the Egyptian people. The angel Azrail (a) took the first born child from the homes of the unbelivers in the night. My son wanted to know why the angel took these children and I told him is was to show the Egyptians the power of the one true God. After the angel departed the believers left the city quietly.
In the morning the sun was blood red and the Egyptians began to burry their dead. My son wanted to know why the sun was red. I told him I didn’t know but maybe it was to signify the blood of the dead. When they saw that the believers had escaped the Pharoah led an army to follow them.
Please share your ideas for teaching children about the lives of the prophets.
