This is the tenth part of our series on the 99 Names of Allah (s) for children.
Please see Physicians of the Heart: A Sufi View of the Ninety-Nine Names of Allah for more information about each name in this project if you would like to know more.
Present the lesson bellow and discuss one or some of the suggested questions.
Assist the students with ideas for the artwork for this name or ask them to make their own interpretation of the medallion provided here:
Fix the medallion to the format you have chosen such as a poster or wall with double-sided tape.
Lesson for Al Mutakabbir: The Greatest
The name Mutakabbir means a vastness so big you can not compare but for the purposes of this medallion we have chosen the redwood tree to suggest a great tree to children. The name can also mean infinitely great.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does great mean?
What does vast mean?
What does infinite mean?
What is the greatest thing you can think of?
Is Allah (s) greater than anything we can think of?
We suggest you choose a space that can accommodate 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.
