This is the fortieth 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 Hasib means that nothing is unrecorded or lost. The name also means an honest accounting or muhasibah where we make an accounting of ourselves. The recitation of this name helps us to regain perspective.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does accounting mean?
What does it mean to make an account of ourselves?
What is perspective?
Why is it important to have perspective in our lives?
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.
