This is the thirty first 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.
The name Khabir means the realm of inner knowledge or insight. The name can also mean that you are tested to reach the knowledge or the secret, like something hidden in the ocean depths. The name can also mean all aware like an octopus with many arms that stretch out and sense in many directions.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does aware mean?
What is insight?
What are the ways that we can know things?
What so you know?
Is there something that you know inside you that other people cannot see?
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.
