    Fantastic! I love the use of the prologue – it sets up the surah nicely! I can see lots of potential for a similar set up elsewhere hehe. And I love the fact you left the last picture without any comment!

    • Thank you Farah. I have to use the ‘prologue’ – and I am using it for many other surahs too – sometimes it gives a bit of background information to “set up” the surah and other times its necessary to get around the disliking of portraying certain characters/figures in Islamic art.

    • Thanks! And as for the definition of Trinity and etc. I went to some Christian sources to see exactly what they said.

    Brilliant! But Amar seems a little intimidating. The other two seem more friendly. 🙂

      Again, an excellent job!
      Though I agree with Zehra too…would be good to see the Muslim smiling like the others!

      • I will keep that in mind! 🙂

        November 26, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    • Hehe, maybe Amar is Bengali and is more worried about the fish being cooked! 😀

    This is beautiful! I’m really amazed at the work you are doing. I teach at an Islamic school to Kindergarten kids who have difficulty understanding the meaning of the Surahs. This is a very powerful resource for teachers n moms of toddlers n lil children. I’m anxiously looking forward to the rest of the short surahs! 🙂
    Good Luck!

    • Thank you Umm Layla. My goal is to have all the surah here inshAllah. I recently finished couple of the larger surahs as well. But smaller surahs are of course way easier! 🙂 Hope you find these useful and helpful when teaching to kids.

  6. Love the addition of prologue, Mezba!

    Were these pictures taken with the new camera?

    “maybe Amar is Bengali and is more worried about the fish being cooked!” LOL

    • Salaams Nadia, thanks!

      These pictures are being taken with my older camera. It is actually now being devoted to this project only! 😀

  7. I think this is my new favourite! Great job masha’Allah.

    • Thank you Wood Turtle, and welcome to this blog.

      Due to the Islamic disliking of portraying figures, certain “creative” ways had to be found to portray this and similar surahs! 😀 And I actually like it better for that. I also think the prohibition of portraying the Prophet is good – now whenever we think of Jesus (peace be upon him) the dominant image comes of a blue eyed red haired person which automatically has its own stereotypes. Then, on the other hand, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was quite descriptive about the physical attributes of the other prophets he met on the Miraj! Something to munch about.

    Assalam u Alaikum,

    I liked the way how you want the children to get inspired by these cartoons and ultimately understand the message behind that is conveyed.
    I have a question, can I print this out for my Islamic School kids?

    October 12, 2011 at 9:24 am

    • Salaams. Thank you for asking.

      You can of course print out pages from a browser as a personal copy for your own non-commercial use at this time. To clarify, do you intend to print and sell the printed pages to kids?


      October 18, 2011 at 1:54 pm

      • Humera

        Printing out and giving to them, not meant to sell it.

        October 18, 2011 at 2:21 pm

      • Thank you Humera for the clarification.
