Where's the Sheikh?
A fun, interactive and vibrant book for toddlers with beautiful pictures of the shrines and places of ziyārat. Not only do our young readers get to see and become familiar with the ḥarams of the Maʿsūmīn, but they also have to find the Sheikh that is hiding in the busy images. We pray this book creates a love and yearning for visiting the ḥarams of the Maʿsūmīn in our young zawwārs and they connect to these infallible role models along the way. Look, find and learn!
The Pigeon Story
A beautiful story of a little pigeon that somehow stumbles out of his nest and finds himself amongst a very special group of travellers - the zawwār (pilgrims) of Imām Ḥusayn (ʿa) - who are on their journey from Najaf to Karbala. These amazing men, women and children are walking to their destination at the time of Arbaʿīn. The little pigeon is awed by the diversity and multitude of people he comes across, how fiercely they love Imām Ḥusayn (ʿa) and how their akhlāq is a reflection of this love. He returns back to his family a changed little pigeon, taking with him valuable lessons of sharing, sacrifice and the love of Ḥusayn.
Girls Health Book
Navigating through adolescence is a challenge all girls face, and our Muslim girls are no different. This girl’s health book shows through visual graphics how to care for both the body and the soul. A unique and holistic approach to the topic, all while maintaining the interactive tone of the book. The book is filled with practical information with the goal of not only reading, but applying that knowledge. May our girls benefit from this book and be empowered by it!
The Companions of Ahlul Bayt
Blessed are those individuals who have the privilege to call themselves the companions of the Ahl al-Bayt. May we have the opportunity to call ourselves the companions of Imām Mahdī (ʿaj). While we are actively awaiting our Imām, we can learn lessons such as striving for knowledge, tawakkul, hard work, and much much more from those companions in history who had the akhlāq that we should strive towards. This series has more than twenty stories of different companions and each has a lesson that the reader can learn from. The stories are written in a very creative and engaging style and will captivate our readers that are 10-12 years old.
Prophet Sulaymān (ʿa) and the Ant
Children are always fascinated by stories, and Prophet Sulaymān's stories are no exception. Prophets are our role models and through their stories we can learn many lessons such as fulfilling our responsibilities, akhlāq, hard work, etc. This story has a fundamental lesson of tawakkul on Allah which will be ingrained in our youngest readers in an engaging and animated way through this visual book. A lesson they will inshāʾAllāh remember through their lives.
Baby's First 110 Quranic Words
Vibrant pictures, simple words and translation of 110 Qur'anic words is a board book making it a perfect addition to your baby and toddler's library. Encourage your child to get familiar with these essential words from the Qur'an and get a head start in their love of reading this Holy Book.
