This is the sixtieth 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 Muhyi: The Giver of Life
The name Muhyi can mean the one who gives life or causes life to quicken. For this medallion we chose to depict life sprouting from a hand to suggest that life is not random and there is a hand of creation and a design in every living thing. The recitation of this name can help those with depression.
Suggested discussion questions:
Have you ever planted something and watched it grow?
Did you have to care for the plant?
How did growing something make you feel?
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).
