This is the forty fourth 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 Mujib means to respond no matter what the obstacles may be because our prayer are answered in Allah’s (s) time. Because of the omniscience of Allah our prayers are answered at the best time. The root of the word Mujib means to ask or to reveal what it is we are really asking for or to listen and see what is already there.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does respond mean?
How is Allah’s time different than our time?
When you ask for something is there a truth behind that prayer?
Have your prayers been answered after a time?
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.
