This is the ninety third part of our series on the 99 names of Allah. 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 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?
Please share your ideas for teaching children about the 99 Names of Allah (s).
