    Oh wow.
    That was amazingly creative of you.
    I was just wondering…. how did you manage to find turbans for your lego people?

    • The Indiana Jones lego sets and the Prince of Persia lego sets all have turbans! 🙂 Sadly they are so pricey! 😦

  4. Masha’Allah this is amazing. I know my sons will love this. Any book plans? I’d love to buy these as picture books. I know my sons would love that. We are a homeschooling family–this is exactly the way they get excited! And me too.

    I also loved the inclusion of the Council of Nicea. Excellent context!

    Hi! I’m a Christian from America, and I really like your Lego Quran. It’s a very accessible way to learn about Islam. I bookmarked it so I can come back and read through the rest!

    I suppose it might seem odd for me to express enthusiasm when I don’t have the same beliefs, but I can appreciate something done out of sincere faith in God/Allah. With so much of the world slipping into apathy about religion, it is refreshing to see someone using their talents for Him, even though our faiths disagree.

    I found this site while reading about the Lego Bible, and I have to say I much prefer the Lego Quran to the Lego Bible because your project is truly meant to teach people about their faith. (The maker of the Lego Bible, an atheist, twisted Jesus’ sayings to show Jesus himself burning in hellfire! Talk about false advertising!) I admire your dedication to not only illustrating the text, but discussing its interpretations intelligently (as with the comic about the treatment of women).

    Again, thank you for making this comic, and I apologize if I have said something awkward – it wasn’t my intention!

    • Thank you LK for your wonderful and inspiring words. I also agree that faith should play a bigger role in people’s lives. I am very happy you found my site to be useful, it is refreshing to hear from people who do not share my faith, yet clearly practice peaceful, respectful tolerance and learning.

      I have read the Bible (mostly through the Lego Bible at first) and was struck at how badly it was portrayed on the Brick Testament. This is a faith that has countless of people doing a lot of good things, and I was also hurt at the non-reverential portrayal of Jesus (peace be upon him), not to mention the use of swear words.

      The Quran is a bit different from the Bible in that it doesn’t go into historical details of stories that it references, assuming the reader is familiar with them or will read about them; this is why I undertook this project so that verses couldn’t be used out of context, either by Muslims or non-Muslims, to support a peculiar point of view. I am very glad you found my site!

      Please do continue to return and visit, and comment! 🙂 Right now I am taking a break, but should be back at the end of April 2012 with more posts, inshAllah.
