Tonight we reviewed the story of Salih (a) in My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil.
We discussed who Hijri people were and my son said they lived in stone buildings carved out of rock. Then we discussed why they did not listen to Prophet Salih (a). My son said that they did not listen for the same reason Iblis did not listen, they were listening to their egos.
The story of Saliah (a) speaks about 9 evil people among the Tahmoodi (Hijiri) people. My son wanted to know if the evil people were zombies and I said not exactly. I asked my son what miracle he would have asked for if he were a Tahmoodi person. He said he would have asked for all the evil people to leave.
We discussed the miracle of camel and my son said he would have had a huge party for the camel and her baby if he had been there.
Please share your ideas for teaching children about the lives of the Prophets (a).
