Lesson for Al Shakur: The Rewarder of Thankfulness
This name means to turn your attention to thankfulness like turning your hands up in dua to catch from a fountain of gratitude. The recitation of this name can be a remedy for dissatisfaction.
Suggested discussion questions:
What is thankfulness?
What things are you thankful for?
What things do you make dua for?
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.
