Tonight we reviewed the lesson for 39. Illuminated Quran: The Crowds.
I asked my son why Allah (s) warns us in this surah about what happens to the unbelievers. My son said that Allah tells us so that we will be scared to be good and not bad but that maybe Allah would forgive us anyway.
I asked my son what does it mean to be an unbeliever? My son said that it means that you listen to Shaitan and do bad deeds.
I asked my son if unbelievers could be good people who do not know about the one God. He said yes that too a little bit.
I asked my son if we can pray for unbelievers to see the truth and he said yes. I asked my son if different Prophets were sent to all the different kinds of people on the earth and he said yes.
I asked my son if people who are veiled from believing in Allah (s) will go to Hell. He said that hopefully Allah will forgive them.
I asked my son what he thinks will happen to the people who are believers but they were hard on the unbelievers and made them run away from Allah (s). My son said that believers who make people run away from Allah are a little bit bad, that they are making a mistake.
I asked my son what the reward for being a believer is. He said Jenna. I asked my son if we hope that all different kinds of people come to believe in Allah (s) and he said yes.
Please share your ideas for exploring the meaning of Quran with children.
