Story from Surah Al-Burooj

“He gave us free will and the ability to choose between right and wrong and one day He will judge us on the choices we made”…..this is one of the most beautiful quote of this beautiful creative work for children and adult as well. I watched this movie in 1993 and since then I got this power to stand for what I thought was right. Usually our religious people make it hard to understand the concept of judgment by restricting it to their own definition of good and bad. I was also confused about it and had fear of facing God on that Day. After watching this movie I realized that all the time we all have different choices and what we have to do is to choose the best option for that particular time or situation. The best option could be as I define it “the easiest way suggested by Qur’an and sunnah and done in a qualitative manner and is not subjected to hurt anyone”. God knows the best. Otherwise we will have to give an explanation on the Day of Judgment, like we had the opportunity to choose the best and we didn’t. May God enable us to make the best choices, Ameen!
The Boy and the King is a feature-length animated Islamic movie. It was the made by an islamic film company named Astrolabe Pictures and sponsored by Elle[disambiguation needed] productions who made an earlier animated Islamic animation called Fatih Sultan Muhammad, which became a popular animated Islamic DVD. It includes a soundtrack of Islamic songs in English, performed by young Muslims. This story is taken from an authentic narration or a Hadith of Islamic prophet Muhammad that explains the reference to “The people of the ditch” in Surat Al-Burooj from the Holy Qur’an (85:4). The Qur’anic story is about a boy who believes in Allah Almighty, and he is blessed with divine protection from the plotting of a wicked king.
