As a child grows, the quest for existence and finding the Creator emerges in him/her. Moreover there comes many moments in life when one is compelled to think about The Creator. Science provides a reason for the existence of everything. Apart from human inventions, there are countless things beyond the thinking of human mind. We know that those are the creations of Al Khaaliq, Allah Almighty. No doubt Allah is The Perfect Creator.

Who is Al Khaaliq? 

Especially for the children, who are growing towards maturity such questions are obvious. Like who has created the sky and stars? The minds of children are very curious. The responsibility lies on the shoulders of parents and teachers to teach them right.

Everything He created here, gives the signs of His existence. To get a better understanding of Islam, teach your children the basic concept of Al Khaaliq at a ripe age.

Allah, The Only Creator, Al Khaaliq

In Quran, Allah has called himself eleven times as “The Creator” of everything. He created everything from nothing. If you want to strengthen your relationship with Allah, teach your children to ask Allah for anything they need. It is one of the prominent Names among the 99 names of Allah. If He intends to bless you with something nobody can stop it, and if He intends to restrain you from something nobody can give you that.
Or were they created by nothing, or were they the creators [of themselves]? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain.
[Quran, 52:35-36]
