"Quranic narratives mention the main details, and the rest are left out; left for the reader to imagine the events that might have transpired in-between the lines, an imagining that is aided by the context, common sense and the many subtle hints in the Quran. For one to fill in these gaps and contemplate on them is part of interacting with Quranic stories and at times is essential to full understanding of the lessons that are to be learnt.
I have checked this telling relying on five great works of Quranic interpretation. The details filled in from the very able imagination of the author completely accord with the spirit and soul of the story to help the listener, especially the child, appreciate the wonder and miracle of the surah. None of the details contradict any Islamic value and many can be found in the copious literature of Quranic exegesis.
I believe it is an excellent contribution to much-needed literature that invites the reader to truly absorb and enter the world of the Quran. The beautiful writing style of the author correspons nicely to the mysterious and compelling style of the Quranic original.
And Allah alone give success.”
