Lesson for Al Muhaymin: The Guardian
The name Muhaymin means to preserve from corruption. This name sometimes translated as the guardian or protector from harm from a temporal cause.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does guardian mean?
What is a protector?
How do we protect ourselves from harm?
As Muslims who is our protector?
We suggest you choose a space that can accomodate all the 99 Names or to fix the names to a fold out accordion book in sequence if you do not have an appropriate space available.
Please share your ideas for teaching the meaning of the 99 Names: A Visual Tasbih to children.
