Lesson for Al Muqaddim
The name Muqaddim means that everything appears in sequence in the right time. When the Prophet (s) made dua for help in the Battle of Badr angels with black turbans arrived to help the believers in a time of great need. The recitation of this name can help with impatience and help the remind the believers of the patience of the sahaba in the time of Prophet (s).
Suggested discussion questions:
Have you ever prayed for help from Allah (s) and been answered in the perfect time?
Has there ever been a time when it was difficult for you to be patient waiting for help?
Why is it so difficult for us to be patient even when help is coming?
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).
