The first word revealed in the Qur’an (Muslim Holy Book) was, “Read!”, a command from God. The importance of educating our children (and ourselves) is something we do from the cradle to the grave. As a practicing Muslim parent, I’ve learnt that it is never too early to support your child’s curiousity, increase their awareness and teach them about faith and the world we live in.
At a young age, the best way to simplify lessons in character, manners and behaviour are stories. Stories of all sorts but most often underpinned by unwavering belief in Allah It’s quite hard to find books designed for really young kids (3+), with the right level of language but more importantly stories that the child can relate to so I’ve hunted far and wide and found these gems that I can read over and over again.
