This is the nineteenth 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:
Lesson for Al Alim: The Knower of All
This name means the omniscient knowledge of God or knowledge from all perspectives, the inner and outer knowledge of things. This medallion depicts the pen that writes the knowledge of God on the Preserved Tablets (Lawh ul Mafuz) concerning all things that were, are and will be.
Suggested discussion questions:
What is omniscience?
What was the first things that the divine pen wrote at the beginning of time?
What are the Preserved Tablets?
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.
