This is the fifty fifth 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 Wali: 55 The Governor
This name can mean the intimate friend or unity. This name can be a remedy for loneliness and alienation, like a lone lion or governor.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does it mean to govern?
Why can it be lonely to when you lead?
What makes a good leader?
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).
