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.

    Oh I watched this cartoon movie donno how many years ago. It was pretty nice. We need more such cartoon movies to educate and inform out younglings about Islam. They need to get off from the Cartoon Network, and Bollywood version of cartoons, and get to taste the reality of life in a fun and educational manner.

    There is also a Cartoon on Suleman the Magnificient, it is called “Fateh.” Not the best quality but if was good enough to have my niece and nephews get attracted. I bought it for myself, and watched it with them. At the end, when I noticed they liked it that much, I told them that its my gift to them.

    Muslims are very far behind in movies and animation. Naseem Hijzai novels can be perfect action historical movies. Ah*

      I have seen almost all the cartoon movies and videos for children produced by Sound Vision and Astrolab and they all are marvelous. Adam’s World is the best. Our family children learned half of the manners and Islamic knowledge from those videos. My daughter still recalls their dialogues and songs. In Pakistan, whether they are religious or not, parents are very close-mind. They don’t give a bit importance to what children want and what is good for their upbringing. Second, religious people consider this kufr and non-religious think this is useless. I wish if could kidnap their children and move to a place where they can’t even witness the shadow of these insensitive parents.
