96. Illuminated Quran: The Clot

This is the 96th part of our series on the Tafsir of Quran for children.

This surah was the first surah revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (s).  This event occurred in the cave of Hira.  If you would like to read more to your child about the life of the Prophet Muhammad (s) and his revelation please see The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil.  

The surah mentiones that Allah (s) created human kind out of a blood clot and taught us things that we did not know.  

Discussion question:  when did the angel first speak to the Prophet Muhammad (s)?  What did the angel say?  Who watches over us as we grow in the womb? When babies begin to grow how big are they?  

Image:  this is an image with a cleaved embryo to suggest the first steps after conception and the angels that guard and protect the embryo on its journey to the womb and the time of growth while there.  

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