53. Illuminated Quran: The Star

This surah speaks about the setting star and the Sudratul Muntaha, a tree of angels at the farthest boundary of the heavens.  There is some description of a few details from the night journey or Isra wal Miraj.  If you would like to read this story to your children there is a chapter in The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil called:  13. Sidrat ul-Muntaha.
Discussion question:  do the stars and constellations move through the sky at night like the moon?  What is the Sidtratul Muntaha and why is it important?

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