Guide for Parents and Teachers

Collect books, wordbooks, videos etc relates Prophet Adam (A) and  Nuh (A) 

Discuss with your kid:

Check if participants have understood the overall story of Prophet Nuh (A) and the main details therein, (Check the study note).

(Use as questions or chat points depending on your children and their levels.)

Nuh (A) loved his son dearly and that love caused him to question and plead with Allah SWT for his son’s life. But Allah SWT told Nuh (A) that if his son was a disbeliever and as such he was not of Nuh’s (A) family.

We will be tested in life and we must show faith.

Important here to draw in that we are ONE FAMILY, ONE UMMAH,

Our link is not race, colour, language, wealth or even blood, it is FAITH.

Nuh (A) was sent as a warner to the community then and to the rest of mankind. Even then Allah does not compromise in giving punishment to Prophet’s son and wife is they are non-believer.

Let your older kids know about the relationship they have with Allah SWT. They should know that Allah created them, He has showered many blessings on them, food, clothing, shelter, family, sight, speech, health etc. etc.

Ask your kids what they should do they do in return.
