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 Hamid: The Praised One
The name Hamid can mean that every atom is saying Alhamdullilah just as we do on our tasbih beads. This name can also suggest that all gratitude and praise returns to Allah (s).
Suggested discussion questions:
Have you every heard an animal making dhikr?
What is your favorite dhikr?
What is the purpose of praising Allah?
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).
