This comic book depicts in a comic form some Islamic stories (mostly revolving the 12 Imams according to the Jaafari school of thought). I liked the idea as I presume not many books of this kind are available. In addition, the authors (two brothers) supported each comic (story) with a number of Quranic verses and Islamic narrations.

The word "Sufi" may hold negative connotation to a large sect of the Muslim community but this comic book avoids Sufi preaching or the like. Its stories are based on

Ada impian kecil untuk membukukan kembali kisah-kisah sebegini untuk kanak-kanak. Dari mula proses melukis, menulis dialog, mewarnakan/shading sehinggalah dijilid menjadi zine percuma.

Bertatih cakap orang. Lagi-lagi untuk kanak-kanak era millenium yang kebanyakannya lebih cenderung dengan imej untuk menarik perhatian mereka.

Cuma impian kecil selepas melunaskan tanggungjawab dan komitmen.

I hesitated at first, but I guess that it's the best thing I've read this morning. Light, short stories about faith, ethics, God's Existence and so on... ( with references as well ). I find it a cool idea to make such good comics, I'd probably re-read it every now and then :)

Walaupun narasi penceritaan ada yang diambil dari cabang Jaafar (Ahl Bait), tetapi komentari dan rejukan Quran digunakan sangat tepat. Hadis yang biasa didengari, walaupun dalam tradisi Ahl Sunnah.

Pengajaran & moral yang padat. Sangat sesuai buat peringatan & dibaca sekali-kala.

I'm not entirely sure. The cartoons illustrate a point that is supported by quotes from The Quran, Prophet Muhammad and usually an Imam. I bought this for Mr. Fox, then I read it before I gave it to him in case he had any questions.

This was also a bit confusing for me. It had parts I could understand and other parts I couldn't understand.

I read the online version, and it's quite good. I recommend it to many newbies and well-versed Muslims.

The illustrator is my mom's friend and he lent this book, well it's a nice book to read. Accurate in its light demeanor but the passionate essence of the religious context wasn't lost. :)

A simple and clear presentation of Sufi life and ethics, using mainly Shi`a sources. Some significant overlap with quotations and principles from the Gospels. ...more
