Prophet's Stories By: IQRA CARTOON - Islamic Prophets & Quran Stories
All praise is due to Allah and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah.
Before watching the video, it’s best to read the following:
Islam forbids drawing people and animals accurately for several reasons, and some Islamic scholars allow cartoons for the purpose of education.
There is a categorical prohibition on drawing pictures of the prophets and righteous people or hanging their pictures on walls, if any.
No one can know the shapes of the angels and jinn. We can know that they were created from light or fire, and we can know that some of them have wings, but the true shape cannot be proven, so the child should be alerted to that so that he does not think that the symbols used in the cartoon are real.
Those who gathered information for the production of this work tried to avoid disagreements and prove one opinion in order not to distract the viewer, and this does not mean that there are no other opinions and narrations, some of which are correct and some of them are weak.
And now we leave you with the video:
Important notes for Sharia students about the video:
1- It is mentioned in some references that Idris, peace be upon him, was born in Palestine and not Babylon, and God knows best.
2- The displayed maps are inaccurate, and there are names of countries that were not established at the time of Idris, peace be upon him, and did not bear these names, such as Persia, for example, because the Persian Empire was established thousands of years after Idris(PBUH).
3- Nothing confirms that the prayer in the ages that preceded the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was in the same format as it appears in the video, and it was mentioned about the previous nations that they kneel, prostrat and bow to God, but we cannot be certain that the complete prayer was like the prayer of Muslims today.
4- It appears in the video that the money is depicted with the dollar currency, and it is understood that this is only a symbol, but if it was replaced by the golden currency, for example, it would have been more correct, so that the idea of the dollar is not the basis of currencies since ancient times, and it is an unintentional mistake and God knows best.
5- Some of the Companions, may God be pleased with them, mentioned that Idris (PBUH) was the first to write with the pen (after Adam, peace be upon him), and this requires the presence of a pen and something to write on, but what appeared in the video it is a rock carved with nails, such as Egyptian hieroglyphic writing or cuneiform writing, and this has no valid evidence. .
6- What is not mentioned in the passage is that Idris, peace be upon him, was also the first to sew clothes using a needle.
7- Likewise, they did not mention in the video important information that God Almighty mentioned about Idris(PBUH), and this information is that God has raised him to a higher place (heaven). And it is narrated in (Bukhari and Muslim) that the Prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, met with Idris , peace be upon him, in the Fourth Heaven, and they exchanged greetings.
8- He states that Idris, peace be upon him, asked one of his angels friends to raise him in the sky, and while they were together when the ascending angel met the angel of death as he descended to earth and told the angel of death the ascended angel that God had commanded him to seize Idris’s soul in the fourth heaven and this is what happened Indeed, God knows best.
