This is the forty eighth 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 Majid can mean to be lost in admiration. For this medallion we chose to depict the milky way as though we can be lost in admiration of the night sky. This name can also suggest abundance or super abundance which can be like the enormity of the Milky Way.
Suggested discussion questions:
What have you experienced that made you lost in admiration?
What is the most enormous thing you can think of?
What do you think of when you see the Milky Way?
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.
