    Very well done! I read this story at least three times. Is Zulqarnain Alexander? Why did you show him as a Viking?

    • Hi, Some say Zul Qarnayn was Alexander, as some accounts of “Alexander Romance” match with the Quranic tale, while it isn’t clear or specified in Islam, except that Zul Qarnayn was a King who ruled the world and believed in One God (Allah).

      Zul Qarnayn means “he of the two horns”, so hence the artistic depiction of his helmet with two horns, similar to the Vikings. I did not want to show his face as some traditions say he was also a Prophet.

    No zul qarnain was not alexander….if you read history you would know alexander was not a muslim….where as zulqarnain was a pious man whom Allah had bestowed with power in land….

    I read a book recently and according to the authors research, he thinks zulqarnain could be akhnetan….the monotheist pharoah who just disappeaared from history….was very interesting read.

    • Than you Shum – interesting infor about Akhnetan. I will have to look him up.

      In my research I came across some scholars who were of the opinion that Alexander was Muslim (in the sense that he worshipped Allah and followed the Prophet of his time or was a Prophet himself) and later history did not record this. In any case, it’s all interesting speculation – Allah knows best.
