The 99 Names of God teaches children a holistic approach to Islam by highlighting the faith’s rich treasury of female voices, fostering a sense of God’s immanence as well as transcendence, promoting an appreciation of other religions, and nurturing ecological as well as social awareness. This ground-breaking family resource encourages children, parents and teachers to balance reason with intuition, critical thinking with creative imagination, social activism with self examination, and ritual prayer with meditative techniques.
