RE - Christianity & Islam
Transcript of RE - Christianity & Islam
about how the world
should be? Is it good to be wealthy? Wear your 'Christian' hat! What might Christians think are the dangers of wealth? Are there other ways we can help people? Using laptops, make notes in the back of your books to explain how these two people have made their wealth and what they've done with it.
Now don't take your hat off - who is the more Christian out of the two and why? Bill Gates & Mark Zuckerberg Learning Objectives:
Identify the wealth/poverty divide
Explain what Christians think about wealth and the causes of hunger, poverty and disease You have 10 minutes Natural Disaster Hunger, poverty and disease Disease and education Trade Debt What do Christians have to say on these topics? Many Christians would feel comfortable about being wealthy. It is important for Christians though that this personal wealth doesn't prevent them from understanding the needs of others. Christian attitudes to wealth and poverty The Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 6:19-20a, 21
Do not store riches for yourself on earth, where moths and rust destroy, or robbers break in and steal. Instead, store up riches for yourself in heaven... For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of all kinds of evil. Matthew 19:24
Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle that for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God Learning Objectives You will examine a variety of Christian responses to the needs of the starving, poor and sick, including giving to charity.
You will identify Christian teachings about the use of money.
You will explore the notion of moral and immoral occupations and the effect this has on believers. Mark 12:29-31
The most important commandment is this... 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'. The second is this: 'Love your neighbour as yourself'. There is no commandment greater than these. How might Christians respond to the needs of the starving, poor and sick? Luke 6.20b
Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God Luke 21:1-4
As he looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. 'I tell you the truth' he said. 'This poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of they wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on. Many Christians give a percentage of their earnings to charity.
In the Old Testament a tenth of the harvest was given to God's work. This is called a tithe.
Now Christians will give money directly to their church or may support a charity like Christian Aid.
There is no rule about which charity to support, as long as they are helping others. How do Christians try to support the poor? Christian teaching about money St. Francis of Assisi
1181 - 1226
An example of a rich young
man who gave all his
possessions away and
devoted his life to others Jesus taught that it was wrong to keep too much money for yourselves - why? Christians believe that all humans are made in the 'image of God' (Genesis 1). People should respect God's creation.
When we choose a profession/job we can choose immoral ones or moral ones. Moral and Immoral Occupations Moral means conforming to the accepted standards of behaviour. Jobs that involve helping others would be seen as moral.
They would support the Golden Rule (commandments).
Jobs that degrade humans in some way are seen as immoral.
Eg. Christians would avoid working for companies that exploit the poor or not care for the environment. AO1:
Q. Explain what Christians believe about the right use of money. (6 marks)
Write in the front of your books. Homework Level 1:
Let the examiner know that you know what the question is about.
Go on to explain in more detail about the Christian teachings about how they should use their money to help the poor (always give examples)
Explain this belief in detail. You know what Matthew 6.24 said, you know about the Old Testament teachings, you should read up/watch some more parables to see if anything fits (eg Parable of the Widow's Offering, Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus) Due in Tuesday Matthew 6:24
No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money. Find out about the work of one of the charities, and design an advert to show their work.
Make Poverty History Activity Islam: Religion, poverty & wealth Learning Objectives:
You will explore Muslim beliefs about the causes of poverty and wealth
You will evaluate Muslim responses to poverty Islam is very concerned about
poverty and suffering Wealth & poverty Surah 3:110
Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah How do Muslims explain this difference? Purification of wealth by payment of welfare due Zakah Surah 2:110
And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: and whatever good ye send forth for your souls before you, ye shall find it with Allah: for Allah sees well all that ye do. Zakah is not charity, it is an act of duty. It is one of the five pillars of Islam Voluntary charitable contributions are called sadaqah lillah (for the sake of Allah).
These contributions are optional.
Zakah is not. Zakah & Sadaqah lillah Hadith teaches us to give charity privately
There is a man who gives charity and he conceals it so much that his left hand does not know what his right hand spends. 'The rich have worked hard for their money, so they should not have to give it away' Next lesson Half of you will be against this, half of you will be for it. You will debate this statement therefore you will need an opening statement and solid comments! How much do Muslims have to give if they earn the following amounts in surplus: Maths! £100 =
£930 = The Quran is clear about the occupations and activities Muslims are forbidden to do. Muslim occupations The importance of working is stressed in the Quran:
'But Allah has created you and your handwork' Hadith:
Every day, each person has two angels near him who have descended from heaven. One says 'O Allah! Compensate the person who gives to charity', the other says 'O Allah! Inflict a loss on the person who withholds his money' You are to design a leaflet to help the local mosque pass out vital information to new Muslims. The information in this leaflet should focus on activities or work which is not acceptable in Islam.
The areas of how a Muslim should not earn money that you must consider are money-lending, gambling/alcohol, prostitution and crime.
This is not a comprehensive list - you can add to this if you wish.
You may use the internet or textbooks for help. Your advice should be backed up with verses from the Quran. Your task: On the inside of the back cover of your exercise book glue in the points of presentation handout.
Once you've done that in the front of your book create a 'compare and contrast' table, focusing on Islam & Christianity. Do this in pencil. Starter Once you have completed your table you need to start filling it in. The focus is on Wealth & Poverty and the two religions you are comparing are Christianity and Islam.
By doing this you will have all the necessary information at a glance. There is no limit to how much information you need to mention, you must ensure that it's all there.
Use the textbooks if you feel you need to.
10 minutes Task 1 2. Answer the following Questions:
a) Why might Christians give money to charity? (6 marks)
b) 'People must look after their family before they worry about the poor'. Discuss this statement. You should include different supported points of view and a personal viewpoint. You must refer to Christianity in your answer. Task 2 OCR questions in Spec B always consist of 5 parts, a-e.
Parts a-c test factual recall (AO1)
Part d is always a 6-mark question which tests understanding (AO1)
Part e is always a 12-mark questions testing evaluation and personal response (AO2) Skills Needed AO1 - Describe, explain and analyse, using knowledge and understanding of the specification content. AO2 - Use evidence and reasoned argument to express and evaluate personal responses, informed insights and differing viewpoints. Islam Christianity Example 5+7= (cc) image by anemoneprojectors on Flickr In this topic you will cover:
The Nature of God
Reasons for belief in God
The concept of miracles Belief about deity The focus will be on Christianity and Islam Miracle baby comes back
from the dead "I have faith that the England Team will do an excellent job" says England manager "What he did was wrong, that's the absolute truth" Define miracle, faith and truth KNOWLEDGE & UNDERSTANDING:
Many people believe in God because they say they can see evidence for God's existence in the world. What sort of examples might members of Christianity and Islam give to support their belief?
ANALYSIS & EVALUATION:
"There is no evidence that God exists." Do you agree? Give reasons to support your answer from your own experience and the religions studied (i.e. Christianity & Islam). Key Questions: Answers in the front of your books.
Follow the PoP Christianity Pick a superhero. Make a spider diagram and show in one colour their qualities and in another colour anything else you think a super being should possess Objectives:
You will explore what Christians believe about the nature of God
You will identify the reasons given to support this belief What about God? Do Christians believe that those qualities are present in God? Let's brainstorm You need to know the difference
between the two God the Father
God the Son
God the Holy Spirit Write down 2 reasons why Christians believe in God in the back of your books Task/
homework Find three examples of modern miraculous events. Print them out to be displayed. Miracles in Christianity Marvellous event Evidences of God "Mighty works" "Signs" He can do this as he is all powerful - omnipotent Miracles of Jesus There are a number of accounts of miracles performed by Jesus in the four gospels
(Mark, Matthew, John and Luke)
Task: Read the verses and write a brief account of the verse and decide which one is a miracle.
Provide reasons. You can divide the miracles into four main groups:
Casting out demons
Healing the sick
Raising the dead The Holy Spirit Jesus promised that his followers would receive the power of the Holy Spirit to guide them. When the Holy Spirit came on the Day of the Pentecost it was such an amazing experience. Christian belief in the Holy Spirit is written in the Apostle's Creed. Starter/Recap: Lesson Objectives By the end of the lesson you will:
Identify some Christian teachings regarding miracles
Have a greater understanding as to what the Holy Spirit is
Become aware of what the Pentacost is Islam What do Muslims believe about the nature of Allah? Where are you? Learning Objectives You will:
Be able to describe some characteristics of Allah
Explore the story of Muhammad (pbuh) and his role in Islam
Evaluate the importance of miracles in Islam Muslims believe in one God The 'Shahadah' - there is no God but Allah and Muhammad (pbuh) is the messenger of Allah Polytheism is wrong Task: 10-15min Allah Ar-Rahman
The Compassionate Al-Khaliq
The Creator Ar-Rahim
The Most Merciful Al-Muhyi
The Giver of Life Ar-Rashid
The Guide and Teacher Al-Kabir
The Great Muhammad (pbuh) The Quran was gradually revealed to Muhammad (pbuh) in 610 on Mount Nur. The words are unchangeable and direct from Allah. Muhammad (pbuh) began preaching the
word after consulting with his family. Even though he was respected and well known the message was not readily accepted. Many tried to stop the message however it began having a great impact and started spreading across the region. Questions: Imagine you are
a) a poor man and
b) a merchant
What might your reaction to the message have been? Miracles Miracles are very important in Islam.
-Musa's (Moses) dividing of the Red Sea
-Virgin birth of Isa (Jesus)
Mohammad (pbuh) was a prophet and is not considered divine, therefore there is no reason to expect him to perform miracles. The Ascent (or Night Journey) Isra and Mi'raj - The Night Journey and the Ascent.
Muhammad (pbuh) was taken from Makkah to Jerusalem on the back of a winged animal (Buraq).
Muhammad (pbuh) prayed and then ascended to the heavens where he met Adam, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa and Harun.
He then met Allah and returned back to the world. The Quran describes Isra
(Surah 17:1) Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest mosque, who precincts We did bless - in order that we might show him some of Our Signs: for he is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things). Allah created and sustains the world, which is a miracle in itself. In Surah al-Fatihah, it states: 'Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds'. Allah therefore is often regarded as the first cause of creation - He is the first, and the last. Religious & Spiritual Experience We're going to look at:
The place and nature of private and public worship
The concepts of prayer and meditation
The place of fasting and food
You should think about the ways in which these beliefs affect the life and outlook of believers in the world today. Many secular (non-religious) activities have things in common with religious practices.
Think of a sport, hobby or activity that you enjoy. Do you do this on your own? Is it something you enjoy with others? Do you have to do anything special to show your support? The concept
of worship Worship is a feature of all religions It's the way you express yourself to a deity You can worship
privately Similarities and
worship Christianity L.O.
By the end of the lesson you will have:
Examined the importance of worship for a Christian and how they worship
Evaluated the significance of religious symbols in worship. What is worship?
When a believer honours or respects God with extreme love or devotion, they can be said to be carrying out an act of worship. Public Worship:
Prayers Private Worship:
'Quiet time' studying the bible Religious Symbols Learning Objectives -Analyse how art and music can be used to express belief about God
-Investigate the use and power of prayer in worship
-Evaluate the use of food and fasting as an aid to worship How does music play a part in Christianity? Used as a way of praising and thanking God You can sing prayers, chant them or it may be spontaneous worship through music. Some don't like music and prefer silent or spoken worship What is prayer? Solemn appeal
to God Can be said publicly or privately Can be said:
To give thanks
As a form of meditation
As a formal set response to God, like the Lord's Prayer The Lord's Prayer Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen. How do Christians use food in worship? There is nothing specific regarding what to eat and what not to eat.
Some are vegetarian but many are not, quoting the vision from Peter which suggests that God wants them to eat all sorts of food.
What is the best known use of food in Christian worship?
Do Christians fast? Yes - in Lent for 40 days to prepare for Easter. You are going to research and prepare to teach the rest of the class about Islam and religious/spiritual experience. Your lesson shouldn't be too long, but at the same time a minute will not be enough.
These are the following topics:
Adhan & Tawhid
Expressing belief & the use of calligraphy
Islamic food laws The End of Life- What happens when we die? Do you fear death? Why/Why not? Would you like to live forever? What do Christians believe about
the body and soul? 05.03.13 Lesson Objectives:
identify what Christians believe about the soul and the body
identify key points about Christians beliefs about life after death Class Activity Where are you on the
progress wall? You will work in groups of five.
You need to draw around one group member so that you will have an outline of a person.
In one colour you need to write what the 'physical body' is made up of
In another colour you need to write about what makes us 'individuals'
You have 15 minutes. What do Christians believe about the body and soul? Everyone has a mind and body, but humans also have a soul - this makes us unique God 'created man in his own image' - this means that humans are set apart from everything else. With Adam, God 'breathed into his nostrils the breath of life'. St Paul - the body and soul are often in conflict, the body wants natural desires but the soul wants spiritual satisfaction Final task/ homework- due next Tues Using the textbook and the handout (The Sheep and the Goats) you are to prepare an article from a Christian magazine which tells people about Christian beliefs about life after death.
Write your article in your exercise books. Use skills your have learnt from your English lessons- Use the 'writing to inform' method, think about organisation, conjunctions like 'as' and 'because' and discourse markers like 'however' and 'moreover'. Don't forget about punctuation! Starter task: 19.03.13 In your books complete the following statements: The End of Life If heaven were:
a building it would be...
an animal it would be...
a colour it would be...
a season it would be...
a flower it would be... Now do the same for hell. Lesson Objectives: All students will evaluate Christian beliefs about heaven, hell
and purgatory, and salvation and redemption.
You will also identify funeral rites and be able to describe how they reflect beliefs and help people to grieve. What do Christians believe about
Heaven and Hell? Follow God faithfully... Expect a place in Heaven Do not follow Jesus' teachings... Expect a place in Hell A sinner can repent though, you will then be able to enter the
Kingdom of Heaven Hell is seen as an absence of God - sinners get to spend an eternity away from God. The Last Judgement by Michelangelo What is purgatory? Some Christians, especially Roman Catholics believe in purgatory. Here, their souls are cleansed from sin until they are fit to go to Heaven.
These people have died but are not yet ready for Heaven. Christians believe in salvation and redemption. What do these words mean? Jesus is known as the 'Saviour'. He saved people form their sins.
He is also known as the 'Redeemer'. He saved people from sin and damnation.
By suffering on the cross he allowed anyone who believed to be forgiven and given a place in Heaven. Over to you: In groups of 3-4 you are going to put on a small drama. This drama needs to be accurate as it will allow you to understand Christian funerals.
You will role-play a Christian funeral, using props if necessary. You should have a narrator who should talk about the funeral and tell the audience what is happening. Ensure you have Christianity in mind. Islam - The End of Life Learning Objectives You will be able to explain Muslim beliefs about the relationship between body and soul You will be able to evaluate Muslim beliefs about life after death and how these affect Muslims daily lives What is the soul? Allah gives each human a soul soon after the baby begins
to develop in the womb.
This soul desires to be pure, perfect and happy by submitting to Allah.
Muslims try to keep their soul pure and clean, ready for the Day of Judgement "Those who purify their souls will certainly have everlasting happiness and those who corrupt their souls will certainly be deprived (of happiness)"- Surah 91:5-10 TO ALLAH WE BELONG AND TO HIM WE RETURN The body and soul work together. The body has physical needs and might try to ignore the spiritual needs. Body and Soul The intention is that the body and soul are united and should equally submit to the will of Allah.
The body and soul must work together to achieve true happiness. For example, the act of wudhu (ritual washing before salah- prayer) is both a physical act and spiritual preparation for prayer. WHO IS YOUR LORD? WHAT IS YOUR WAY OF LIFE? WHO IS YOUR PROPHET? Heaven Hell If you please Allah you will enter 'Al-Jannah'- Paradise. It is far more pleasurable than this world If you displease Allah you will enter 'Jahannam'- Hell.
Sinners can be forgiven and can eventually enter Heaven. 'Shirk'- comparing anything to Allah or disbelieving are unforgivable sins The afterlife lasts forever but no one knows what it is like. The closest anyone can imagine is descriptions from the Qur'aan.
Some say that Surah Al-Waqi'ah will give you the most accurate description Starter activity: On the scales in front of you write down the good and bad actions you have done over the Easter holidays (thinking of Islam's rules) Learning Objectives By the end of the lesson you will:
be able to describe the relationship between obedience and the afterlife
Identify what happens at a Muslim funeral and explain its importance
Evaluate Muslim attitudes towards death The link between obedience and
the afterlife You only have one life, therefore you only have one chance to be obedient (and seek submission) to Allah.
If you are obedient then you will be rewarded in the afterlife.
So how do Muslims lead their daily lives? By following the rules in the Qu'ran, showing obedience to Allah and copying the example of Muhammad (pbuh) What happens at a Muslim funeral? At the time of death - Shahadah is recited and eyes are closed (if open) After death - Body is washed in a special way (ghusl) by a member of the same sex. First the parts usually washed for wudhu are washed, then the rest of the body.
The body is then wrapped in 3 white cloths for a male or 5 white cloths for a female. People usually use their ihram - the sheets worn during Hajj. Muslims don't use a coffin but in Britain burial without a coffin is not permitted.
Cremation is not allowed as full body resurrection is anticipated on Judgement Day. Surah 75:3-4
Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones? Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers. The burial is normally done ASAP and preferably not in the night. The legs must be lowered first, the body should be laid on its right side, with the face towards the Ka'bah Only men attend funerals.
They recite special funeral prayers - Salat-ul-Janazah.
You can only recite these prayers in the presence of the body.
The grave itself should be simple - a modest headstone with no decoration is usual. Different prayers are offered. They usually ask for forgiveness: Oh Allah! Forgive those of us that are alive and those of us that are dead; those of us that are present and those of us that are absent; those of us that are young and those of us that are adults; our males and our females. Oh Allah! Whomsoever You keep alive, let him live as a follower of Islam and whomsoever You cause to die, let him die a Believer. How do Muslims
support the bereaved? Period of mourning - 3 days
Crying is acceptable - wailing is not
Family and friends will gather, bringing food and offering emotional support Some say that Muslims visit graves to pray and remind themselves that this life is short and they must live in submission to Allah. How do you answer Qd? D questions normally ask you to explain something that you have studied and to link it to the everyday life / behaviour of a religious believer. The key skills that you are being examined on here are:
•selecting relevant information
•applying / relating it to the question D questions will almost always start with the word 'Explain' and will ask you to explain the following:
•religious beliefs (ideas about a particular subject)
•religious teachings (found in holy books, or that given by religious leaders today)
•religious attitudes (feelings that a person
may have because of their religious beliefs) Using the example of 'Life after death' the difference can be seen below.
Explain Christian BELIEFS about life after death. Christians believe that when they die they will go to heaven because…
Explain Christian TEACHINGS about life after death. One Christian teaching about life after death is that ‘The dust (body) returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it’.
Explain Christian ATTITUDES towards life after death. Christians are not afraid of dying because…. How do you answer Qe? E questions will always start with a statement (e.g. ‘Men and women are not equal’). In your answer you are required to do the following:
•Explain what the statement means to you (PERSONAL VIEWPOINT)
•Discuss the various responses to the statement including the evidence that people use to support their opinions (DIFFERING VIEWPOINT)
•At least one of the responses that you discuss must be from the religion you have studied, backed up with evidence (you can talk about the variety of views sometimes found in your chosen religion (RELIGIOUS VIEWPOINT). About 2 paragraphs about your chosen religion is a good amount to write.
•Analyse the views that you have mentioned and come up with a conclusion / answer to the statement. Good and Evil In this topic you will look at: The nature of good and evil
The sources and reasons that guide religious people in making moral decisions
Ways of understanding and coping with suffering You will also think about ways in which these beliefs affect the life and outlook of believers today Read and think about how you would answer the questions on pg 89. Be ready to share your thoughts. Christianity - Good and Evil Learning Objectives:
Examine Christian ideas about God and Satan
Evaluate the impact of the original sin on Christian behaviour What do Christians believe about God? Old Testament - 'Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God' (Exodus 3:6b) - God is described as so perfect that Moses couldn't look at him New Testament - God is described as: loving and forgiving a Supreme Being Perfect with qualities that humans can't comprehend The Ultimate Good If there is an Ultimate Good then there must
an Ultimate Evil - known as the Devil (Satan) What do Christians believe about Satan? Male, red in colour, horns, tail, carrying a pitchork?
Has been known as Lucifer, the Accuser, the Father of Lies, the Serpent
Fallen archangel who was cast out of heaven
Satan is real and rules over hell (literal) - the Devil is the potential we all have to choose evil rather than good. Hell is not a real place but a place where God is absent What do you know about the Fall and original sin? Everything was perfect... until Eve was tempted to eat the forbidden fruit by the serpent This is known as the Fall and shows that humans, right from the start, have rebelled against God. From this time on, all humans have been born in a state of sin and have a natural ability to choose evil over good. This is called the original sin. Christians believe that they have been seperated from God since the Fall. How can they return to Him? Through Jesus' sacrifice. It redeemed humanity from the original sin so that people could go to heaven. Evil exists for a purpose.
Seeing as God is OMNISCIENT and OMNIPOTENT He must be aware of the fact that humans suffer.
Some think God chooses to do nothing,
Others think that we have to make choices for ourselves
seeing as how we have free will. Question to answer:
What is natural evil and what is moral evil? Give 5 examples of each.
Give one example of something that is both moral and natural evil. Read the extract from Genesis 3.
Decide whether Adam or Eve was to blame for the Fall, or if God was at fault for giving them free will. Learning Objectives:
Identify a variety of ways that Christians may cope with suffering
Explore the sources and reasons Christians have for behaving morally Starter task:
In your books, explain how you think Christians may choose to deal with suffering. How would they cope? Suffering strengthens a believer's faith.
God would not test a Christian with more that they could bear. Jesus suffered for them, this gives them the strength to cope with their own suffering. Suffering started with the Fall, humans have to accept this orginal sin which leads to suffering. If humans have free will then God must have a plan to end all suffering. They may not understand but there must be a purpose to this suffering. Prayer is a response to suffering Christians believe they should make choices that will make them become more like God.
Humans were made 'in the image of God' (Genesis 1:27) so they need to become more like him.
They need guidance for this. They need a moral code.
Where is this moral code written?
Where else can you learn? Task/Homework AO2 Question - 12marks 'There is no such thing as the Devil, it is people who are evil.' Discuss this statement. You shoud include different, supported points of view and a personal viewpoint. You must refer to Christianity in your answer. Islam - Good and Evil Learning Objectives:
Explore the concepts of Good and Evil in Islam
Investigate the nature of Iblis/Shaytaan
Compare the original sin (Christianity & Islam)
Investigate the notion of free will in Islam Starter: Re-read the original sin handout from last lesson 19. "And O Adam! Dwell you and your wife in Paradise, and eat thereof as you both wish, but approach not this tree otherwise you both will be of the Zalimun (unjust and wrong-doers)."20. Then Shaitan (Satan) whispered suggestions to them both in order to uncover that which was hidden from them of their private parts (before); he said: "Your Lord did not forbid you this tree save you should become angels or become of the immortals."21. And he [Shaitan (Satan)] swore by Allah to them both (saying): "Verily, I am one of the sincere well-wishers for you both."22. So he misled them with deception. Then when they tasted of the tree, that which was hidden from them of their shame (private parts) became manifest to them and they began to stick together the leaves of Paradise over themselves (in order to cover their shame). And their Lord called out to them (saying): "Did I not forbid you that tree and tell you: Verily, Shaitan (Satan) is an open enemy unto you?"23. They said: "Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers."24. (Allah) said: "Get down, one of you an enemy to the other [i.e. Adam, Hawwa (Eve), and Shaitan (Satan), etc.]. On earth will be a dwelling-place for you and an enjoyment, - for a time."25. He said: "Therein you shall live, and therein you shall die, and from it you shall be brought out (i.e.resurrected)." Starter You task: You are going to create either a report, PowerPoint presentation or table that highlights the differences or similarities between Islam and Christianity, focusing on Good and Evil. You must support the areas with religious texts (e.g. Bible or Qur'an).
The areas that must be included are:
Moral Evil and Natural Evil
The Nature of Satan/Shaytaan
Adam & Eve/Adam & Hawwa
Suffering - How do people cope with it?
Morality (i.e. behaving morally)
Use your own knowledge, the textbook or the Internet for help. You should now have a good understanding of the Islamic and Christian viewpoint of good and evil...
You are NOT going to be tested today.
Instead, you are going to delve into other religions and have an understanding of how other religions view good and evil.
Your task: For the next two lessons you are going to work in randomly assigned groups. You need to research your assigned religion and how they view good and evil.
You will create a 30-40 minute lesson about this and then 'teach' your classmates your assigned religion.
You will need a starter (introduce us to your lesson), middle (main task/s) and then a plenary (this is where you check to make sure we all understand).
When all 3 lessons are taught you will then be tested on this topic!
