Lesson for As Sabur: 99 The Patient One
The name Sabur can mean to see things through to the end, to persevere to the end of a trail, or to endure or not complain. The name can also mean that God defers judgement. The recitation of this name helps you to endure a long journey and allows you to stand firm.
Suggested discussion questions:
What does it mean to persevere?
How do you motivate yourself to continue when you are on a long journey?
What is better than complaining when you experience a struggle?
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).
