This is the sixty sixth 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.
Lesson for Al Wahid: The Unique
The name Wahid can mean the unique in all or that everything is a mirror of God. For this medallion we chose to depict a snowflake as each is known to have a unique structure. The students could choose another structure that is unique to illustrate this concept.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does it mean to be unique?
What other things are unique?
Are fingerprints unique?
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).
