Prophet Musa (a)

Prophet Musa (a)
Israil's family decided
to stay in Egypt. For a
long time they were
happy. The family grew.
There were many people
related to Israil and they
became known as the
Bani Israil.
For some reason the
Egyptian people did not
like the Bani Israil.
A new Firawn became ruler
of Egypt. Israil's people
became slaves to the
government. They wereforced
to do many unpleasant jobs
and were treated very badly.

One night Firawn had a
dream. His high priest, Haman,
told him what he thought the
dream meant. An Israil boy would be born
and he would grow up and cause
the death of Firawn.

This made Firawn very
angry and so he thought of
a horrible plan.
All the boys born to the
Israilites would be
killed at birth.
He thought this would
stop the dream from
coming true.

Imran and his wife had two
children, a girl called Maryam
and a boy called Iram. Soon
after Firawn told of his
plan, Imran's wife found out that
she was going to have another

Eventually Allah showed mercy.
He told Ayyub to strike the earth
with his foot and miraculously
a fountain appeared.
He drank the water and used

He sailed away but the ship
was so full and heavy,
poor Yunus

swallowed by an
enormous fish and he
lived in its belly
for three days.
Then the fish spewed
him out on a shore.
He was very ill but
Allah was protecting him.
A plant grew
and its leaves protected
Yunus from the sun and
kept the flies away.
A wild goat provided him

They gave short measures
and weights,
they robbed people and
caused mischief but most
seriously they tried to stop
people from
worshipping Allah.
Shu'ayb tried to make
them change but they
would not listen to him.
They wanted to throw

destroyed because they
would not obey the
word of Allah.

a very wicked wife who
said many things about
Yusuf that were quite
untrue. She thought
she loved him but he
told her that she should
honour her husband.
She became very angry
and persuaded her
husband to have Yusuf
put in prison.
While he was in prison,
Yusuf used to tell everyone
what their dreams meant
and his explanation of the
dreams always came true.
Allah had given Yusuf
this great gift.
Firawn kept
having a strange dream
and none of his wise men
could explain what it meant.
Then Firawn heard of
Yusuf's great gift and
sent for him.
Yusuf would not leave
the prison until he had
proven his innocence.
Firawn had an inquiry
and discovered that Yusuf
really was innocent, so
he was able to leave prison.

Firawn's dream was most
unusual. In it, he saw
seven skinny cows eat
seven big fat ones and
there were seven skinny

see that Yusuf was their
father's favourite. This
made them very jealous.
They became so jealous,
some of them actually
wanted to kill him.
The jealous brothers
finally decided
to throw Yusuf
into a deep well.

They went to Israil, their
father, to ask if they could
take Yusuf out with
them; they said they would
teach him to be a good
shepherd. Israil would
not let Yusuf go because
he thought the others
were planning to do
something bad.
One day Yusuf went to
Israil and said that he
had had a strange dream.
In the dream Yusuf
had seen the sun, the
moon and eleven stars
bowing down to him!

Israil felt that
the dream had a
message, Yusuf was
going to have a
great future. He
told Yusuf not to

about the dream.

still thinking of their
plan to kill Yusuf.

to let them take
Yusuf with them

The Well of Zamzam
where water first flowed
to save the lives of
Hajar and Ismail, became
a popular place for the
caravans to stop.

place so much they decided
to stay there.
This place became known
as Makkah.
One day Ibrahim had
a message from Allah.
He and Ismail were to
build a place for
people to pray.
They were to build
an altar, it was to
be known as the Ka'aba.
The angel Jibrail
brought the message
saying that the Ka'aba
should be built near
the Well of Zamzam,
the most sacred place
on earth.

The foundation stone
for the Ka'aba was to
come from heaven.
It is found today in a
corner of the Ka'aba and is
known as the black stone.
When Ibrahim was
building the Ka'aba
he was standing on
a large rock. Allah
softened the rock and
the shape of Ibrahim's
bare feet was left in
it. It is still there,
for all to see.
When Ibrahim was
very old the angels
came to see him and

The Sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (a)

One night Ibrahim had
a bad dream.
He dreamt Allah told
him to sacrifice Ismail.
Ibrahim thought it was
Shaytan playing nasty
tricks on him.

The next night Ibrahim had
the same horrid dream.
Ibrahim knew that
Allah would only
ask him to do such
a thing if he had good
Even though he loved
his son dearly, he was
prepared to do this
difficult thing for Allah.
Ibraim told
Ismail they
had to go to
Mount Arafat.
He took a knife
and a rope with him.

On the way they passed
a place called Mina.
The devil, Shaytan, came
to Ibrahim and
tried to talk him
out of sacrificing
his son.
Ibrahim turned his back
on him and would not listen.

Arafat, Ibrahim told Ismail
what Allah wanted him to do.
Ismail listened and accepted
what was to happen. He was
an exceptional child.
He too was a
great prophet.
Ismail told his father to tie
his hands and legs and blindfold

Ibrahim, Hajar and Ismail
moved to a valley in
Arabia. They settled in
a good place with hills
and mountains on all
sides to protect them.
After a while Ibrahim
said that he should go
back to see Sarah and
to get more food and water.
Before he left he prayed
to Allah to look after
his wife and son because
they did not have much
food and water left.

The food and water
soon began to run low.
Hajar was very worried. What
could they live on?
They prayed to Allah.
Hajar went to the top of
the mountain, Mount Safa,
to look for Ibrahim.
Now their water was all gone
and they were desperate.
She went to the other
side of the valley and
climbed to the top of Mount
Marwa. She looked towards
the North, East, West and
South for help but found

backwards and forwards
between Mount Safa and
Mount Marwa.

called Sarah. They lived
very happily in Palestine.
They worked and had
plenty of everything.
Ibrahim became very
wealthy, but he was
a good man. He
always helped
other people too.
After many years Ibrahim
and Sarah still had no
children. This made
them very sad. They
both wanted a
child to share
their life with.
Sarah told Ibrahim
that he should marry
her servant Hajar too,
so that Ibrahim and
Hajar could make a
child together.

Prophet Ibrahim (a)

Prophet Ibrahim (a)
Many years ago a boy
called Ibrahim lived
in Canaan.
he was very clever and was always asking questions.
Most of the people he knew
worshipped idols but
Ibrahim did not.
The people had
forgotten the messages
that Adam, Hud, Nuh
and Salih had
brought them.
Instead of praising
Allah they worshipped
Ibrahim told his father
he didn't think people should
worship objects they had
made themselves. His father
was angry and told him
not to say anything about
the gods again.
Ibrahim decided he must
show the people they were
wrong so he thought of a
One night he sneaked into
the place where all
the statues were
kept. With an axe
he chopped off the
heads from all but
one of the statues.
The biggest one
he left.

people were very angry
and upset at what had
happened. They were
sure Ibrahim had done it.
They gathered in the
public square and asked
him if he had done it.
Ibrahim told them to ask

Prophet Salih (a)

The people of Thamud
lived in a valley
called al-Hajr
in the north of Arabia.
It was a good land
so everything grew very easily.
Cattle and sheep grazed

had plenty of everything.
When people have a lot
they sometimes forget
who provides everything,
they sometimes forget Allah.
When this happens
Allah sends a messenger
or a prophet
to try to help the people.
To the people of Thamud,
Allah sent Salih.
Salih told the people
to remember Allah
but a lot of people just
at him and would
not listen.
He did not give up.
He still tried to persuade
them to worship Allah
and soon people
began to listen.
They realised Salih was right.
The leaders of Thamud
were upset by this.
They did not want people
to listen to Salih.
They did not believe Salih
was sent by Allah.
They wanted him to prove it,
they wanted a sign.
They told Salih
to bring them a camel
but it had
to be a
special camel.

Prophet Hud (a)

Prophet Hud (a)
A long time ago,
a great tribe lived in the
South of Arabia.
They were called Ad.
They were very clever and
could do many things.
They used the mountains
for their homes.
They carved out great mansions
with wonderful pillars.
They called their city Iram.
It was very famous.
As time went on,
the people of Ad
thought more about themselves
and less about Allah.
They thought they
didn't need Allah,
because they had
lots of money
and power.

They thought they were
being clever but really
they were foolish.
Before long they turned
to bad ways.
Gangs of them used to
rob and kill people
travelling by.
There was still one good man
among them.
His name was Hud.
He did not belong to any of
the gangs.
He did not agree
with the things they did.
He tried to tell them
to stop their bad ways
and told them
to follow Allah's ways.
Hud said Allah would punish
the bad ones but most of the
people still would not listen.
They thought they were

To settle the argument

Adam thought of an idea.

He told his sons to think

of a present to give to

Allah and to leave it

on top of a certain hill.

The one whose

present Allah accepted,

would win the


Allah chose Habil's

present because Habil

had taken a lot

of time and trouble

to choose his present.

Qabil was very upset and

angry. He was so angry

Prophet Nuh (a)

Prophet Nuh (a)
After many years Adam

had grandchildren and even

great grandchildren.

There were now lots of

people on earth.

Many of them obeyed Allah

but some were not so good

and did just what they

wanted to do all the time.

This made Allah very unhappy.

Allah chose Nuh,

a good man, to tell the

people that what they

were doing was wrong.

But they wouldn't listen

to him and carried on

doing bad things.

Allah decided that

all the naughty people

should be punished.

He told Nuh to build

a big ark near

his house.

Nuh quickly got busy

choosing good wood and

building it up into a

fine ark.

A lot of people laughed

at him but he did not

take any notice of them,

because Allah had told

him what to do.

When he had finished,

he put lots of food

into the ark and collected

the good people together.

They also took lots of

animals with them

into the ark, two

of every kind.
