    • Thank you Nadia. I was thinking it was time I put some surah into modern context, after all those turbaned depictions! 🙂

    The second picture is my fav from this post! I love it how you connected all the verses together in this short surah.

    Our MSA is having an Islam week this week. Can I submit this site to them?

  6. Assalamu alaikum. This is good work you have done.
    I am just being inquisitive with respect to why your posts are not starting the surahs with “Bismillahi Rahmanir Rahim” or its translation !

    May Allah reward you for your hard work and being so creative, masaAllah. Please continue this work. This surah is speaking about horses when they go to battle. It depicts an amazing scenery that top Hollywood movie could not depict. It is not speaking about wanted bandits. Listen to tafsir by either suhaib Webb or Please don’t take offense I am not doing half the hard work you are doing to spread the message.

    • Salaams SOA,

      Just to clarify, I am aware that in this Surah, Allah swore on steeds (which were horses on which the Arab raiders went on their raids). In ancient times, the horses were a means by which these raiders did their crime. In one tafseer I attended, the scholar mentioned that in those times, the Arab raiders would attack near dawn, not in the dark of a night, so as to prove their bravado. Today, cars have replaced horses as the medium of charging to one’s raid, and this portrayal draws on that, and the interpretation is for modern times.

    Assalam o ALikum
    Subhan Allah. simply outstanding work bro!
    Keep it up. really its perfectly fulfilling the need of time.
    My son (6) just finished making his lego tow truck and then i read him a bedtime story from your blog. I can’t imagine what kinda super creative ideas he would be getting in his dreams tonight:) in sha Allah.
    May Allah increase your understanding of Quran and make it easier for you to make alive its meaning for the rest of the world and be a sada qa e jaaariya for you. May He almighty keep you on the staright path and guard your work and protect it from all falsehood. Ameen
    jazak Allahu khair

    P.S. starting the surahs with taooz and tasmiya would be a great idea 🙂

    • Thank you Umm Bilal for your comments, and ameen to your dua.

      PS. I haven’t realized about the taooz and tasmiya, thanks for bringing it to my attention!

  9. Shukran for your efforts. Explaining it to the kids means that now I also know what it means and will not forget it, Ameen
