Tonight we learned about the story of the cow that was sacrificed to find the ones that murdered an old man among the believers.
The people were told to slaughter a cow but they asked many questions about the cow first which was bad manners.
Once the cow was slaughtered and they struck the dead man with her tail the murdered man sat up and identified his murderers. My son wanted to know why they were supposed to hit the dead man with her tail so I told him the whole story is a little strange but the believers were supposed to do what Allah (s) told them even if it was strange.
Please share your ideas for teaching children about the lives of the Prophets.
