90. Illuminated Quran: The City

This is the 90th part of our series on the Tafsir of Quran for children.

This surah speaks about the city of the Prophet’s (s) birth, Mecca.  If you would like to read more about the life of the Prophet (s) to your children and the events that occurred in Mecca there are several chapters devoted to this subject in The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil.

Discussion question:  where was the Prophet (s) born?  Did the people of Mecca accept the Prophet (s) and support his message?  Where did the Prophet (s) go when the unbelieving Meccas tried to kill him?

Image:  for this surah I lifted an image of a medieval walled city from a Persian miniature.  
Please share your ideas for teaching the Tafsir of Quran to children.
