Alhamdulillah we had our first Free Saturday Quranic Storytelling session on Surah Al-Masad yesterday afternoon :).
It was a nice and cozy turnout, we spent a few minutes getting to know each other, each person read a few of the ayats from the surah, and then we went into the story for about ten minutes.
Surah Al-Masad or also known as Al-Lahab is a very graphic surah with lots of stories behind it- about what happens to evil and bad people. So among the lesson for us is that:
1. We should try our best to use our limbs (mentioned in the surah are hands, neck, arms (carrying)) to do good deeds so we can end up in paradise with joyful things to hold instead of fire, firewood, horrid hellfire rope.
2. When we try our best to do good, we should't be afraid of the bad guys. InshaAllah Allah will take care of us as He did for His beloved prophet, sallallahu alaihi wasallam. ^_^
InshaAllah we'll put up the story on youtube once it's ready :). (Or once we figure out how to do it ^_^)
Come join us next session on Saturday 24 January 2015 InshaAllah for Surah An-Nasr!
