This is the twenty fourth 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 Muizz: The Bestower of Honors
The name Muizz means to bring true dignity and honor. For this medallion we chose a medal that you would be awarded as recognition for some achievement in dunya to suggest the idea of the true honors that we can receive only from Allah (s). We found an antique Ottoman medal for military service and used it as the model for this medal composite.
Suggested discussion questions:
What is dignity?
What does it mean to be honored?
If the good we do is not recognized in dunya can it still be recognized by Allah (s) and in akhira?
Is it better to be honored in dunya or in akhira?
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.
