This is the thirty seventh 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 Kabir means incomparable greatness or vastness, like an ocean without a shore. For this medallion we have depicted the Grand Canyon because it is greater than can be seen at any one point of view.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does vast mean?
What is the greatest thing you have ever seen?
Have you ever seen the Grand Canyon or photos of the Grand Canyon?
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.
