54. Illuminated Quran: The Moon

This surah speaks about the miracle where the moon was torn in two and passed through the sleeves of the Prophet Muhammad (s).  If you would like to read this story to your children there is a chapter in The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil: 8. The First Believers.

The surah reminds us of the punishment that falls on people that reject the truth after they have witnessed a miracle.

Discussion question: what miracle did the Prophet Muhammad (s) perform for the Quraysh?  What other miracles do we know about?  Why is it better not to ask for a miracle?

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