Lesson for Al Rashid: 98 The Guide to the Right Path

The name Rashid can mean exact guidance for some and this name can bring hope to those who have a lack of direction.  For this medallion we chose to illustrate a forked road to suggest that when we reach a crossroads it is wise to ask for guidance and direction.
Suggested discussion questions:

What do you do when you experience uncertainty?

How do you choose between several options?

If you feel that you have taken the wrong path what do you do about it?

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).
