104. Illuminated Quran: The Slanderer

This is the 104th part of our series on the Tafsir of Quran for children.

This surah cautions us against gossip.  Listening to gossip is harmful as well because of the trouble it causes.  

For this surah I plan to read the story of Adam (a) and Hawa (r) from My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil to explain the concept of waswas.  

Discussion question:  what is gossip?  Why is gossip harmful.  Who whispered to Adam (a) and Hawa (r) in the garden? How did Iblis mislead Adam (a) and Hawa (r)?

Image:  I lifted this from an old painting of Iblis seducing Hawa (r). Other images I found of this event that included Adam (a) were not as stylish but I am not omitting him as an oversight or to suggest that her guilt is any different than his.

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