Lesson for Al Warith: 97 The Inheritor of All

The name Warith can mean that everything will return to Allah (s).  For this name we have illustrated a parchment upon which an individual can write their will or decide who will inherit their material possessions after they die.  We use this illustration to suggest that Allah (s) is the true inheritor.

For the purposes of this lesson it may be helpful to play Surah Nisa and review the themes of inheritance and you can also see our lesson plan for this Surah 4. Illuminated Quran: The Women.
Suggested discussion questions:

What does it mean to inherit?

What happens to our material possessions after we die?

Does the Quran tell us how inheritance should work in dunya?


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).
