    Would it be considered halal to draw stroys from Quran ( like story of ashaab ul kahf, prophet jonah , moses etc etc)

    to introduce quranic versions of these stories to other people and young kids?

    Obviously while drawing the stroies one would draw the prophets too but in a manner that these drawings are like childlike drawings , for example ; a character has round head 2 dots as eyes and smile , like a silly cartoonish way and not realistic sketch or something.

    Would that be halal or haram? Because it would be very sensitive if one draws prophets in these stories?

    But not drawing our last messenger (pbuh) because that would be absolutely inappropriate.

    So can we draw these famous Quran stories, that are also in Bible for example? With other prophets?

    Thank you

    Anything like that is halal or haram depends upon some ethically objectionable element in it.

    Drawing is a mode of art and is used effectively for storytelling. The same can be used for the stories of the Quran and prophets. But the societies like Pakistan and India, the people are very sensitive to such things. One needs to avoid any unnecessary conflict in society.
