The Tree of Light: Part 47

This is the forty seventh sample of  The Tree of Light: The Lives of the Prophets for Young Muslims available now on Amazon.  This is the first volume of a three volume series with maps, pictures and paintings of important sites and Maqams related to the stories of the Prophets.  This series would be an ideal source for the Tree of Prophets  project featured here on our website.  In this adaptation of Hajiah Amina Adil’s comprehensive history of the Prophets a sage grandfather tells the stories of the Prophets to his two adventurous grandsons who learn that the stories of the Prophets have come to life.

The old man turned into the Angel Azrail (a) and took the soul of Ibrahim (a) gently. He was buried near his wife Sarah (r) in Khalil (Hebron) in the Holy Land.

Grandfather looked down.  Yusuf was sleeping and Sulayman was snoring under the blanket where he had hidden from the mosquito.  Grandfather uncovered Sulayman a little and the mosquito slowly descended. When Grandfather whispered something to the mosquito it hovered for a moment before it turned to fly away.  He went to take wudu (ablution) and the Nightingale trilled in the garden as the adhan for Isha prayer echoed through the courtyard.
