Just like God gave birth to Moses to destroy the Pharaoh, He gave birth to Prince Imraan, in Kehran’s house itself, to destroy Kehran. 

When crime crosses the line, it becomes a means of self-destruction. This was the condition of Kehran because oppression had reached its limit. Thousands of Muslims had been blinded by Kehran, in the crime of disagreeing with his ideology. The blinded came together and formed a settlement by the name of Kohimavra. The citizens of Kohimavra were impatiently awaiting an opportunity to take revenge on Kehran and God sent Prince Imraan to help them do exactly that. Prince Imraan, with the help of his slaves Fareedun and Fazlu, fought with his father. Eventually, he too arrived at the doorstep of the people of Kohimavra. However, Kehran’s army followed Prince Imraan to Kohimavra and its residents fled from their homes. 

Faredoon and Shehnaz locked eyes and with time they fell in love. The whole convoy was arrested and they were brought to another King. But God was impressed by the courage of the convoy and helped them. King Haman got acquainted with the convoy and together they attacked Kehran’s kingdom.

On this curtain, find out who acquired victory, Kehran, or the convoy?
