Lesson for Al Hakim: The All Wise

The name Hakim means healing wisdom, to control passions and have skillful actions.  For this medallion we chose the bird of wisdom that Sulayman (a) found the owl to be so wise that he wished to have the owl as his companion.  Hakim is also known as the physician of the heart.
Suggested discussion questions:

What is wisdom?

Have you every heard something wise?

Who is the wisest person you know?

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.
