This is the eightieth 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 At Tawwab: The Acceptor of Repentance
The name Tawwab can mean to not carry a grudge and to grant forgiveness. For this medallion we chose to depict a crying eye or someone crying because they are sincerely repenting. The recitation of this name can help when you feel wounded or deficient.
Suggested discussion questions:
Have you ever sincerely asked for forgiveness?
Have you ever sincerely forgiven someone?
What is the right thing to do when we feel badly about something we have done?
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).
