Pictorial Tafseers removed…Sorry

Assalamualikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

Dear all,

Jazakumullahu khairan for ur duas, comments and continuous support that you have given this humble blog. Alhamdulillah, who made this a source of benefit to so many of us.

I recently had a conversation with my Ustadha regarding using pictures to depict the unseen, like Shytan depicted with two horns on his head, a tail and fangs, similarly beautiful pics for Jannah and fearsome pics of lava and flaming fire for Jahanaam..well i was informed that this was wrong as these are from the unseen (ilm ul ghaib) and we should refrain from imaging it. Allah (SWT) tells us time and again about Jannah that no eye has seen it and it is beyond our imagination then how can we similarize it?

So till further confirmation from the Scholars I am removing the pictorial tafseers. Insha Allah, if i get the approval, about them being right, I will re-post them. For now, may Allah forgive my mistake that i did unknowingly, and give me the tawfeeq to do what is right, while teaching our young ones. Aameen

I also request you all to forgive me if I have unwittingly misled any of you. I also urge you to consult the knowledgeable scholars about the same and refrain from using the tafseers, till you get a clear answer. It is better to stick to what is correct than to wander in the grey area and fall into sin, unknowingly.

Jazakumullahu Khairan
