Assalamu alaykum and welcome.
When I set out to review and improve “30 Days with the Names of Allah” (which I first compiled in 2017), I was excited to offer a better product to the Muslim community; however, I was conscious that at least some children – including my own – had aready completed it.
So here is the second installment: 30 More Names of Allah to explore with your children, to reflect upon and to make a living part of our faith as Muslims, in sha’ Allah.
Using both workbooks
Because my eldest child has already completed the study of the first set of 30 Names of Allah, he will be studying this workbook, while his younger brother will tackle the first set, insha’Allah. I think I might be wonderful to have each of them present their own name of Allah of the day each day in Ramadan (insha’Allah it goes that well! … alhamdulillah, a mom can dream!).
The workbook containes all the sources I used. They are:
- Explanation to the Beautiful and Perfect Names of Allah, shaykh as-Sa’di, Dar us-Sunnah.
- The Beautiful Names of Allah, derived from the explanation of al-Qawaid al-Muthla by Shaykh Uthaymeen raheemahullah, Darussalam.
- Exemplary Principle concerning the beautiful Names and Attributes of Allah (al-Qawaa’id al-Muthla), Shaykh Uthaymeen, 2nd edition, TROID Publications.
- Names & Attributes of Allah, lesson by Abu Talhah Dawood Burbank raheemahullah, salafisounds.com
I tried my best to use the exact explanations of the scholars above. I opted for simpler words where needed, but made sure to convey the intended meaning, insha’Allah. All good is from Allah and any mistakes are my own.
About this workbook
If you and your children have already studied the first 30 Names of Allah included in my previous workbook, don’t despair! here are 30 more.
The format is the same, each daily page includes:
- One Name of Allah each day
- A little Arabic handwriting practice (copying the Name of the day)
- Finding the proof for the Name in the relevant ayah/hadeeth
- Copywork (in English)
- A small picture to colour in – or not!
- A reflection question, which can be answered shortly in the space provided, it can be used as a writing prompt or a starter for a “big juicy conversation” (Bravewriter style).
Not only for Ramadan
This is not a Ramadan specific activity, but each workbook explains 30 Names , so they are ideal to be completed in Ramadan, insha’Allah!
It is a simple and meaningful daily activity to foster knowledge, and therefore LOVE, of our Creator in ourselves and our children.
There is no reason why you cannot happily include this into your ongoing homeschool, Ramadan school, Ramadan basket, book basket, family circle, madrasah, Islamic studies club… (you get the gist).
