Surah Al-kauther Step 2
So We did word to word Translation and then full Translations was done where Pictures helped us in Understanding the theme of Surah Al-kauther.
So far kids have been taught the meaning of words as well as the activity that the race is not run by a boy or a girl but the race is run by faith.
Second day we did some tafseer from the Book ‘Islamic studies’ It is a great read to understand background of Surah and power of Allah..
kids have been taught that those who mock our beloved Prophet will one day be burned their own fire, and in the Hereafter there is a greater torment for them. Kids have been taught what to do if someone makes fun of us. We do not have to answer, nor do we have to worry in our hearts, but we have to put our hearts and minds towards that great and glorious paradise which will be the reward of patience done today. Kids have been taught how important prayer and sacrifice are in Islam.
Prayer gives us the courage to endure the hardships that come our way and by sacrificing, the love of the world and wealth disappears from our hearts Children have been taught the meaning of goodness, what is the real good, the blessings of this world or the everlasting paradise of the hereafter.
Revision, discussion, The children were told in detail about surah Al-kauther Canal, that the Kausar Canal would be given by Allah to our beloved Prophet as a reward. On the Day of Resurrection, our Prophet will drink water to his thirsty ummah from Kausar canal.
Whoever drinks water once will never feel thirsty again. The water of Kusar canal will be sweeter than honey, whiter than milk and colder than ice, and there will be as many glasses for drinking water as there are stars in the sky. But the people who will bring new things in Islam will not get a drop of water from that river.
Exercise was done. Where children recite Surah Al-kauther by heart with translation and Kausar canal was drawn and infographics were done.
Step 6 Activities
Then also do read a story from the book, ‘My first Quran stories book’. This story help us to understand the topic of the hadith and its implementation in our daily life. A story and various activities are conducted along with it. Mission and purpose of life is important. If we have any mission our followers and our team members would continue it, nor our generations.
An activity done in Class of surah AL-Kauther. Write done the name of your father an forefathers. But Alaas !!! Students only knew the name of their father and grand father(even some don’t know what is the name of grandfather). One of them made this. I’m happy for her. She wrote the name of her great fore father as well.
Why we did This activity? In the introduction of the Surah it is revealed that……People of Makkah were got enemy of Prophet SAW when he tried to Spread Islam. They were trying to stop spreading Islam. They followed many tricks but failed. Meanwhile Our Holy Prophet SW s son was died.
When the only male offspring of our prophet died, the disbelievers of Makkah got a chance to make fun of our prophet and say that Muhammad’s generation is gone. Then Allah revealed Surah Kusar and consoled our beloved Prophet and also promised Kusar (many good wishes).
We learnt that, Name, sons and generations don’t carry our name , but our mission. Our faithful mission and sincerity will prolong our name with the help of Allah. Family names could be run with girls like The Prophet’s family.
We should live with good name not with bad memories like Namrood, firaoon, Abu jahal and Abu Lahab who is even cursed in Quran. Our Prophet got great Abundance and Muslims do remember him 5 time in a day in Prayers and in many other ways. Alhamdolilah. So He is not forgotten but his enemy.
Drawing of River kauther. I know we cant Imagine how would be like. But to tempt children and make a wish of getting its water, we supposed to draw it. And it is what they drew according to their Imaginations. Subhan Allah.
Now its time to mind map the Surah Al-kauther
Surah Al-kauther’s theme is great abundance and blessings to Our Holy prophet from Allah. Al-Kauthar is the 108th chapter of the Quran which was revealed to Prophet Muhammad in Mecca, therefore, it is called a Makki surah. Surah Al-kauther is the shortest surah in the Quran which is found in in the final juz of the Quran, juz 30. The word Kawthar comes from the word kathir numerous or plentiful) and literally means [a source of great] abundance.
This surah speaks about how God has gifted Prophet Muhammad a source of great abundance and blessing.
Alhamdulilah. The response of the kids was very good. I am very thankful to Allah for the good response from the kids. children told about that if we want our Prophet to drink water on the Kawthar canal, then we have to follow the Sunnah, because those who do not follow the Sunnah will not be able to drink water from the Kawthar canal. Do At the end, the children will be reminded to pray in which words if someone drinks water
