64. Illuminated Quran: The Loss and Gain

This surah speaks about how riches and children can be a trial or challenge even though we do not like to loose them.  We can gain wealth and family and then loose it again but the surah says that our real rewards will be in the presence of Allah (s). 

Discussion question:  how would you feel if you lost all your possessions?  How would you feel if you lost a family member?  What reward do you think you will have in the presence of Allah?

Image:  throughout most of human history parents lost young children frequently; for this surah I chose a mother and child illustrate the idea of the most difficult loss that occurs here on earth, the loss of the people we love.  

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