105. Illuminated Quran: The Elephant

This is the 105th part of our series on the Tafsir of Quran for children.

This surah concerns an attack on the Kaba by the army of Abraha in the year of the Elephant, the year the Prophet (s) was born.  

If you would like to read more about this story to your children there is a chapter about this event in The Light of Muhammad by Hajjah Amina Adil.  

Discussion question:  who is Mahmud? Why did Abdul Muttalib say that Allah (s) would protect his own house?  What happened to the people who attacked the Kaba?

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