"The serial revolves around the stories of Animals that accompanied prophets and were at their service, undergoing exciting events and were the main themes of miracles in Quranic verses, such as the CROW, sent by God to Cain, to show him how to hide the wrong doing and teach him how to bury his brother Abel, and the story of the Bird of Abraham that the prophet had slaughtered and dispersed all over the mountain then sought its revival and she returned to him pleading, and the story of the Dog who has lived the experience of death, over three hundred and nine years along with the People of the Cave...

And other animals that had accompanied the prophets throughout their lives and had the chance to play a significant role in their stories. The Series, shed light on these creatures that have been lost in what seems to have been the greater light of prophets. This resulted in the Qossas el-Hiyawan fil Qur'an (Animal Stories From Qur'an).

But how were the lives of these animals before they met these prophets? How the Quranic verses were revealed to them and what these verses have changed in them? The Series depict those religious stories as seen and felt by these animals; these are ordinary dramatic characters; they're not bestowed with any holiness, they can be mistaken as they can be right, they love and hate and sometimes prey. 

They laugh and cry, and innocently interact with their surroundings, with the honesty and purity of their sheer candid reality.

Each episode deals with only one story, but they are beautifully interlaced by the narration of one main character, a shepherd in constant meditation on God's creation, a devotee of animals who knows how to speak their language; he knows he could reach their soul even though they know not how to respond. This intriguing character is closer to a mystical preacher, a wanderer roaming God's kingdom, in search for wisdom and consciousness."
