This is the forty ninth 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:
Lesson for Al Baith: The Resurrector
The name Baith means to resurrect or awaken to the eternal life. For this medallion we chose to depict the tailbone or coccyx bone that will be used to resurrect us on the Day of Judgement. This bone will be preserved until the Day of Judgement and from this bone each person will be resurrected.
Suggested discussion questions:
What is resurrection?
How will we be resurrected?
What will happen on the day of judgement?
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 children about the 99 Names of Allah (s).
