Students could discuss the idea that the Qur’an is a guide for how to live your life, and how to treat others. Students could work in groups to create their own set of rules for how to live life and treat people, then check their work against passages in the Qur’an to look for similarities and differences. They could include a section on friendship, looking after toys, the environment, manners and responsibilities to others.
