Prophets 1-7

Aadam was trying to fix his jetpack because it had broken when he tried to fly over the garage. It had knocked against a lamp post and something had fallen off. As he stood looking up at the garage and thinking about how he would retrieve the missing piece, his sister Arwa appeared.
“Assalaamo’alaikum, what are you doing?” she asked.


After he explained to her what had happened she offered to help him but she also said, “today my jumu’ah mission is to memorise the 25 prophets mentioned in the Qur’an.”
“Your jumu’ah mission? What’s a jumu’ah mission?” he asked, confused.
“Jumu’ah is our special day, a special gift from Allah. We use this day to refresh ourselves, remind ourselves of our purpose in life and do extra good deeds. So, I like to have a jumu’ah mission every week. This week I’m learning the names Aadam, Idris, Nuh, Hud…”


“Aadam! Like me!” he replied excited. “I want to share your jumu’ah mission! Let’s try to do it while we fix my jet pack!” he pleaded with his sister.
“Okay,” she replied with a smile.
“So Aadam alayhis Salaam was the first prophet, I brought an apple for each of us to remind us of when he ate from the tree he was forbidden to eat from.”
“So an apple for Aadam…When I’ve eaten this I’m going to get out my notebook and write down a plan for fixing my jet pack inshaAllah.”
“A pen!” replied Arwa. “Like the pen Idris alayhis salaam was taught to write with! So, an apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris…”

Just then there heard some crying from the other side of the garden. They ran across to find Bilal staring at a bucket full of water with tears running down his face. When they arrived, he pointed to the bucket. Arwa looked into to find his favourite toy boat had sunk to the bottom of the bucket. She fished it out and realised he had covered it with playdo which had made it too heavy to float. As she cleaned the playdo off she said to both her brothers, “An apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris and a boat for Nuh alayhum salaam!”

When she turned around she saw Aadam was stacking some planks of wood on top of each other to try climb up to the garage roof. “Where is the ladder?” she asked.
“Baba lent it to the neighbour, and it is too early in the morning for us to disturb them but it’s ok I’m building my own ladder.”
“I don’t think your ladder is quite as safe though. The higher you built it the more…Aha!” exclaimed Arwa. “An apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris, a boat for Nuh and building up and
up for Hud alayhum salaam. Remember the people of ‘Ad built high buildings they were proud of?!”
Just then, a squirrel jumped off the garage roof and knocked down something which pinged as it hit the hard stone.
“It’s the missing piece from my jetpack!” cried Aadam excitedly. “Alhammdulillah! It’s like it just came out of the garage!”
“Yes, like it appeared from the stone. Like the houses the people of Thamud used to build the mountains, the same mountains Allah made the camel come out of.”

She picked a stone off the ground and said, “An apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris, a boat for Nuh, building up and up for Hud and a stone for Salih, alayhum salaam! That’s five Prophet’s mashaAllah!”
Aadam got out his toolbox and began to fix his jet pack. He didn’t notice Bilal walk off with the piece that had just fallen off the garage roof. When he had finished mending one side, he turned to pick up the missing piece. But it was gone!
He was so confused he started wondering around looking for it and became convinced the squirrel must have taken it.

Arwa was wondering around happily in the garden saying to herself, “An apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris, a boat for Nuh, building up and up for Hud and a stone for Salih, alayhum salaam!” When she heard a shout from above.
She looked up to see, to her great surprise, Aadam stuck up in a tree!
“Aadam! What are you doing up there?!” she cried.
“I climbed up because I thought the squirrel had hidden my broken piece, but I was wrong and now I can’t get down. But Arwa, I can see smoke from up here! I think there is a fire a few streets away! Oh, alhammdulillah the firemen are just arriving.”
“Alhammdulillah! An apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris, a boat for Nuh, building up and up for Hud, a stone for Salih, and fire for Ibrahim alayhum salaam! Remember Aadam, he got put in the fire and Allaah made it cool for him!”

Arwa went to get her Baba to see if he could retrieve the ladder to get Aadam down from the tree. When they returned together he was shouting excitedly.
“There are police there now too! With the fire men! Alhammdulillah, the fire has been put out and it doesn’t look like anyone was injured, but I think someone might be in trouble.”
Arwa jumped up and down saying: “An apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris, a boat for Nuh, building up and up for Hud, a stone for Salih, fire for Ibrahim and police for Lut alayhum salaam! Remember there were lots of crimes going on around him!”

As he began climbing down the ladder, Aadam looked down to see Bilal on the ground, waving his missing jet pack piece at him.
“It was you!” he cried.

However, when he reached the ground, Bilal had run away again. Aadam ran inside to try and find him. Arwa ran behind him, repeating again and again:
“An apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris, a boat for Nuh, building up and up for Hud, a stone for Salih, fire for Ibrahim and police for Lut alayhum salaam! I remember! I remember alhammdulillah!”
She stopped suddenly as she realised Aadam had discovered Bilal.

Bilal had collected a few items and he was hiding behind the sofa with them all. There was an apple, a pen, a toy boat, a lego building, a stone, a candle and a toy police badge. They took everything out together before hugging Billal as he returned Aadam’s piece.
Aadam ran off to fix his jet pack and it wasn’t long before he was whooshing around in the garden again. Arwa picked up Bilal’s collection and went to put everything back in it’s proper place. As she tidied, she said to herself:

“An apple for Aadam, a pen for Idris, a boat for Nuh, building up and up for Hud, a stone for Salih, fire for Ibrahim and police for Lut alayhum salaam!” Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The best day on which the sun has risen is Friday. Adam was created on Friday and on it he entered Paradise and on it he was expelled from therein. The Hour will not be established but on Friday.” Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 854
