How to teach these to kids in fun way?
Make elephants and ababeel masks. Ask your kids to role play the scene where Abraha is marching with his giant elephants to destroy the Ka’bah. Then comes Ababeel dropping stones at them. Narrate them the incident of Hazrat Abdul Mutallib and Abraha.
Points to ponder:
When Allah is by your side, your situation is win win. No matter how hard the time is, no matter who is against you. Never be scared by looking at big problems and scary enemies. Allah the Almighty has Supreme power to deal with anything. HE just says كن and things happen. And it is remarkable to see that the tiny birds destroy the whole army of elephants.
We have made a rhyme based on this Surah.
I am fi’l
I stomp my feet
I will go and destroy the Ka’bah
Abraha is my King
Abraha is my king
He ordered me to go and destroy the Ka’bah
Then what happened?
Allah sent the Ababeel up from the heaven
Each Ababeel had three pebbles
One is beak and two in claws
When Ababeel threw the pebbles
The mighty elephants laid on the ground
Abraha was sad to see
That all his mighty elephants
Are no longer good to go
This is how Allah saved His house
From the mischief of Abraha
Who ordered to destroy the Ka’bah
