94. Illuminated Quran: The Expansion

This is the 94th part of our series on the Tafsir of Quran for children.

This surah speaks about the event where an angel came to the Prophet Muhammad (s) and opened his chest to clean his heart.  Our hearts still carry this black spot that allows Iblis to sway us but the Prophet (s) was purified.  If you would like to read more about the life and experiences of the Prophet Muhammad (s) to your children please see The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil.  

Discussion questions:  what ways can we purify ourselves?  How can we protect ourselves from Iblis entering our hearts?  

Image:  with this image I wanted to convey the idea that the heart of the beielver can contain the light of Allah (s).  

Please share your ideas for teaching the Tafsir of Quran to children.
