We learnt about Prophet Idris alahissalaam this week. We used Ibn Katheer's Stories of Prophets for this.
We pasted the Prophets Fact Sheets and recorded about him alahissalaam.
She traced this.
We learnt that Prophet Idris was the first Prophet to be sent to mankind after Aadam and Sheeth Alahissalaam. We also learnt that he was born while Aadam alahissalaam still had three hundred and eighty years more to live!
We learnt that he was the First Man to write with a pen in this world. We pasted some pictures with pen, ink and so on along with our review questions. Co incidently we visited the Museum of Islaamic Art here last weekend (Pictures and post about our visit will come shortly Insha Allaah!) and we saw many ink pots and pens all the Muslims used many many years ago. We spoke about it and remembered the great favour of Allaah that He taught us how to write.
Then we learnt that Allaah speaks about Prophet Idris in Soorah Maryam saying that "he was a truthful Prophet and Allaah raised him to a high station". We learnt his Story and learnt a bit about Malakal Mawth and how his soul was taken at the fourth heaven.
