Lesson plan:

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 An Nur: The Light

The name Nur can mean one who illuminates the truth and guides us.  For this medallion we chose to depict a lantern of the light of the Prophet (s) which Allah (s) created from part of  the divine light.
Suggested discussion questions:

Why did Allah (s) create Muhammad (s) from part of the divine light?

Why do we need light to guide us?

What are the other important elements of guidance?

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).
