I just stumbled upon your blog today, and Masha’allah it is very cute and beneficial, alhumdulillah! 🙂
Could you please elaborate on the 17th verse of this chapter.. You have written about summer and winter, but I fail to understand! 😦

Salaams and welcome to the blog.
The 17th verse says Allah is the Lord of the Two Easts and the Two Wests. The tafseers of the Quran explained this verse as that the two Easts refers to the points the sun rises in the summer, and in the winter (they are different, the sun changes the sun rises at different points every day of the year, and they are grouped into summer and winter). Similarly, for the sun sets.
Hope this clarifies the ayat.

In a way, this verse also conveys that the seasons are a gift and blessing of Allah, and seasons are caused by the earth’s journey around the sun and the varying lengths from the sun on its orbit.

Assalamu alaikum, I love your work, however you have written that she believes in darwins theory, is that a typo of “do” instead of “don’t”?

No, it’s not a typo. She (the woman in red) does believe in Darwin’s theory, with some modifications. Evolution is a provable scientific fact, but Islam teaches us that man is a special creation of Allah (and so we are NOT descended from apes). Please have a look at this video by Abdul Rahman Green.
This is also what I believe, and what the character in this depiction believes.

Jazak Allah Kher for making this beautiful website. My 9 year old daughter just finished reading Quran and now she is insisting to start reading it again with the translation. But I was hesitating to let her read Quran at this little age because at some places there are very strong words about Allah and the day of judgment and about people of other religion or of no religion. I was searching for some surahs which can be kid friendly and then I found your website 🙂 I hope to benefit my daughter with your work.
Jazak Allah Kher
