Picture of the Day: Tafsir Ibn Kathir

I come down early one morning recently and found a box decorated with animals in the front room.  I though it was rather a nice box and might be useful to store some of the kids stuff in.  Hubby had come home late from doing a house work and left it there.

I took a peek inside the box and found a full set of 10 volumes of Tafsir Ibn Kathir in immaculate condition.  I have been after a set of these for the last few years, but never got round to spending the £120 or so it costs.  Aren't I glad I didn't now!

Hubby confirmed that he did a house move the night before and had been given the books.  I was over the moon.  I told him he should have hidden them and given them to me on Eid, I would have been happy all year.  His face dropped when he realised the missed opportunity!

I really do like this man's job.


  1. Assalamualeikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuhu dear sis! Wow, that's amazing, subhanAllah! Hope you enjoy it :)

  2. Was he given them as a gift, or by someone who didn't want them or couldn't continue to store them? Pretty sad if the latter.
