Lesson for Al Mubdi: The Originator

The name Mubdi means to initiate or cause something to be found.  This name can also mean wonder or discovery.  For this medallion we chose to depict the Big Bang as the point of origin for the universe.  The recitation of this name helps with apathy.

Suggested discussion questions:


Have you ever started a chain reaction?  Like dominoes or a ball rolling down a hill?

What is the Big Bang?

Have you every looked for the cause of something and found its origin point?  Like a leaking sack of sugar?



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).
