This is the thirty third 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:
The name Al Azim can mean feeling the divine presence or feeling the infinite in yourself. The word magnificent can mean beautiful, elaborate or extravagant. For this medallion we have depicted a supernova or a magnificent celestial event.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does magnificent mean?
What do you think is magnificent?
Do you ever feel the infinite in yourself?
What is it like to feel the divine presence?
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.
