Summer 2020: Stories of the Prophets for Tweens
Allah swt says “We relate to you, the best of stories in what We have revealed to you of this Qur'an“ (12:3) Story telling has been one of the most natural and effective methods of teaching since the beginning of time. Everyone loves a good story be they young or old. And what could be better stories than those of the Prophets mentioned in the Quran from which we can learn and take valuable lessons to live by. In this course we will be reliving stories from the beginning of creation, traveling through time as we connect each prophet to the one after, and developing an understanding of how each Prophet came to continue the message of the one before.
