Lesson for Al Wadud: The Loving
The recitation of the name Wadud helps us to develop intimacy with others which is a reflection of divine love in tumultuous relationships. For this medallion we have chosen to depict a mother and baby holding hands.
Suggested discussion questions:
What is divine love?
What makes us feel close to the people we love?
What is the intimacy between a mother and child?
