Lesson for Al Wajid: The Finder

The name Wajid can mean divine ecstasy where God becomes the eye through which you see.  Wajid can also mean the measure of the spiritual station.  For this medallion we chose the astrolabe for the other translation meaning “finder.”

Suggested discussion questions:

What is an astrolabe?

How does an astrolabe help you to find your way?

What is a spiritual station?

Is finding something in a spiritual way different from finding something in an ordinary way?

 

Display:

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).
