This is the 100th part of our series on the Tafsir of Quran for children.
This surah speaks about the struggle between good and evil as a battle with mounted horsemen. This struggle is witnessed by Allah (s) and all the secrets that we try to hide will be remembered on the Day of Judgement.
I think that this surah presents and excellent opportunity to talk about Islamic chivalry with children. There are several chapters in the childrens’ sira: The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil that describe the chivalry of the Prophet (s) and his army of Sahaba in detail. I plan to chose one chapter to read to my children as part of the lesson for this surah.
