In Sahih Muslim, the Prophet (s) said, “Practice archery and horseback riding.” The Prophet (s) said “Any action without the remembrance of Allah is either a diversion or heedlessness except four acts: walking from target to target (during archery practice), training a horse and learning to swim.” (Reported by al Tabarani on good authority)

β€œPrepare to meet them with as much strength as you can afford,
verily, strength lies in archery,
verily, strength lies in archery,
verily, strength lies in archery.’” – Prophet Muhammad

It is said that a necessary part of tradition is the exercise of storytelling. It is also said that actions are lauded well and beyond the use of words. Both adages are celebrated when respect and purpose are applied. Marrying love of the age-old Islamic custom of horse riding with the noble warrior practice of archery, our heroes are able to tip their hats to all these elements.
