13. Illuminated Quran: The Thunder

This surah speaks about the creation of the sun, moon, mountains, and rivers before the creation of the plants in pairs.

Discussion question:  what were some of the first things created?  What were some of the last things created?

This surah says that the thunder praises Allah (s).

Discussion question:  when there is thunder in the sky what do you hear?


This surah speaks about the Umm al Kitab or the Mother of the Book which is the source of all divine revelation from Allah (s).

Discussion question:  where did the idea of writing come from?  Why do we write down the books of the Messengers of Allah (s)?
Image:  I chose to depict the thunder with grey clouds drawn in a style observed from Persian miniatures.
