When we want to teach our kids Tawheed (i.e. Islamic monotheism) should we have to read classical texts and books in this regard? No, of course not. Dr. Saleh’ As Saleh’ (rahimahullah) always had a knack to examine & explain Islam is such a manner as to make it interesting, fun & exciting.
This book, Knowing Allah, is the map for the beginning of your child’s journey into understanding their religion.
The 2nd book in Dr. Saleh’s Teaching Children Tawheed Series details 3 VERY important things to know in order to understand Tawheed. Explained in detail via the Classic Work ‘Usool Ath Thalatha’ (The 3 Principles), can you, the adult, guess what they are?
They are: Knowing Allah, Knowing Islam & Knowing the Messenger (salallahu alaihi wasalaam).
This is a story of Prophet Saalih (alaihi wasalaam) and his people known as Thamood. His story is interesting because Allah does not just tell it once in the Quran, but many times. Every Muslim knows the story about the she-camel.
The lessons from this story are many: Not putting Allah to test, or disobeying Allah. Also it tells how many people will agree with & follow Allah when things are going good, but then go back on what they have promised to Him, turning back to our previous ways.
The story of Prophet Hud (alaihi wasalaam) is another important one in terms of lessons. Again the disobedient people would not change their ways. Resulting in their punishment.
The arrogance & stubbornness of the people of ‘Ad ultimately led to their destruction. Allah swept one of THE most powerful people from the earth.
The 2nd part of the story of Prophet Hud (alaihi wasalaam) goes into more detail, for older children, about the lessons involved in this story.
Older children need to get a sense of the importance of obeying Allah & answering His calls for our worship of Him. Both of these parts are presented in a VERY teachable way & format. Download for FREE for use in schools.
