As part of this term's study of Islam, Year 3 have been learning about the 99 names of Allah (God) as found in the Quran. Each name describes an attribute of Allah such as The Most Merciful and The King. The children produced beautifully decorated plaques illustrating one of those names, some of which are now on display in our classrooms.
We also learned about Islamic prayer beads in class, noting that they contain 99 beads, representing each name of Allah. Some sets contain 33 beads, in which case they can be cycled through three times during prayer.
