Tonight we read about the story of Harun (a) in My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil.
My son wanted to know why the staff of Musa (a) ate all the other snakes that came from the magicians’ staffs. I explained that Musa (a) had real power and that was stronger than the magic of the others.
My son wanted to know why the army of Pharoah drowned in the Red Sea when the water fell back in after the Banu Israil reached the other shore of the Red sea. We discussed why Allah (s) made the water to fall onto the army of the Pharoah to protect the believers fleeing Egypt.
Please share your ideas for teaching children about the lives of the Prophets.
