Lesson for Al Badi: The Originator

The name Badi can mean going back to the ultimate source, the ground of being or the seed, or the unborn foundation of excistance.  For this medallion whe chose to depict a sprout emerging from a seed.

Discussion Questions:

How is a seed diferent from what the seed becomes?

What is inside a seed that helps to create a larger being?

Why are seeds small and beings larger than their seeds?

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.
