Lesson for Al Karim: The Generous

This name Karim suggests the endless gifts of Allah (s).  This name can also suggest the fertile ground from which gifts come.  For this medallion we have chosen to depict a pomegranate fruit with abundant seeds.  The recitation of this name helps against stinginess.

 

Suggested discussion questions:

What does generous mean?

Can you think of an example of Allah’s (s) generosity?

Why is stinginess bad for us?

 

Display:

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.
