Companions of the Ahl al-Bayt (ʿa)

Pilot of 3 stories

The Companions of the Ahl al-Bayt series is a collection of stories written with 10 year olds in mind.

Through this series, we hope to give a little glimpse into the lives of brave, wise, and God-fearing companions who dedicated their lives to the service of Allah and the Ahl al-Bayt. They worked tirelessly to keep alive the teachings of the Imāms and the spirit of Islam, no matter what challenges they faced. InshāʾAllāh, these stories help the Imāms and their noble companions come alive in our minds and will inshāʾAllāh inspire us all to walk in their footsteps.

This project is still very much a work in progress. In order for us to know how close or far we are to achieving these goals, we ask for your feedback—adults and children alike. Don’t be afraid to be honest! Let us know what you think. This is the pilot round; inshāʾAllāh your thoughts will help us make the stories even better for future readers and you will be part of the reward and learning of our children.
