67. Illuminated Quran: The Kingdom

This surah speaks about the creation of the 7 heavens. The lowest heaven is adorned with lamps.  

Discussion question:  why do you think Allah (s) created the stars?  How were the stars formed in the universe?

A compliment to this surah is The Powers of Ten video on You Tube which illustrates the vastness of the known universe.  

If you are interested in a further exploration of the creation story of Islam please see our post: The Days of Creation.

Image:  this image mean to suggest the lamps hung on a tree like the stars hung in the sky.  

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