Sya’aban has arrived and Ramadan is just another month away. Now is the time to conscientiously water and nurture the seeds of iman and taqwa that we have planted in Rajab, so that by the time Ramadan comes, we are ready to rise up to the challenge of fasting. Not only do we refrain from food and drink from dawn to dusk, we also “fast” by watching our every action, doing whatever that pleases Allah and avoiding anything that may incur His wrath.
Hence, let’s fill our days in Sya’aban with prayers and zikr, fasting and reading the Quran as much as possible. InsyaAllah, may our efforts to prepare ourselves for Ramadan be rewarded with boundless blessings during the coming holy month!
Our feature book for the months running up to Ramadan is My First Book About the Quran, a board book for toddlers and young children. It is the perfect introduction to the teachings of the Quran for them to appreciate what the Quran is all about.
The Ramadan and Eid Collection is also back. The set of 4 storybooks on Ramadan and Eid plus a Ramadan and Fasting activity book will keep your child happily distracted from the hunger and thirst of fasting during Ramadan.
May you enjoy the stories from the books we have in store as well as have endless fun doing the activities while you meaningfully bond with the whole family.

This book presents the life of the Prophet Muhammad, upon whom be peace, from his childhood in the desert to his divine mission and early preaching in Makkah. It goes on to describe the hostility of Makkans towards his message, their total boycott of him and his family, the Night Journey to seven heavens and the migration from Makkah to Madinah. In Madinah he was welcomed and lived there for ten years teaching and calling people to the divine truth. His life went through stages of poverty, prosperity, defeat and success. Yet whatever his state of well-being or hardship, he never once strayed from the path of moderation. At all times, and right till the end, he remained the patient and grateful servant of the Almighty, bringing his message of peace and truth to all mankind.
The focus throughout the book is on the spirit of the Prophet’s teachings, and on the lessons that should be derived from it for our daily lives. These exciting historical events are presented in a simple, informative style, with beautiful illustrations, so that young people may understand and enjoy them. This book is a useful tool for every Muslim parent who wish to inculcate the love of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. in their children.
