Author Sara Khan shares her thoughts on her book, “Starting with My First Book About the Qur’an, I hope to capture young children’s attention through simple language and colourful illustrations in a board book format that is suitable for their age group and presents them with the fundamental teachings of the most important book in Islam.

I hope it becomes a treasured introduction to the Qur’an and Islam and that it will be accessible to every young child and parent who values their child’s Islamic education or would like to raise their awareness and understanding with regards to a religion or way of life that may be different from their own.”

I’m Learning About Eid-ul-Fitr

eidulfitr

Farah and Faisal were very excited. They were looking forward to celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr after a month-long of fasting in Ramadan.

After maghrib prayers, their family went to a park where the sky was clear. Many families had gathered there to see the new moon. Everyone was thrilled to see a very thin crescent moon in the night sky. “Eid Mubarak, Have a happy and Blessed Eid!”, they greeted each other.

This book tells the story of two young children living in London, and how they celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr.  They visited the mosque at Regent’s Park on the morning of Eid and paid zakat fitrah. After the Eid prayers, they met many friends dressed in their best clothes. They embraced one another with the greeting “Eid Mubarak!” Outside the mosque, there were stalls selling food and drinks and everyone was in the mood of celebration. They even stopped by to enjoy carnival rides at a park.

Back at home that afternoon, their father explained to them that Eid-ul-Fitr is a day to remember and glorify Allah and thank Him for all the blessings that He has bestowed upon them. Allahu Akbar!

Learning points :

Throughout the book, the author has inserted simple daily duas, such as “Dua after a meal” and “Dua for parents”,  that children can learn to memorise and practise in their daily lives.

Celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr with Ama Fatima

ama_fatima

Ama Fatima loved children, and after a month-long of fasting in Ramadan, she always made sure that the children would have a great Eid. Eid-ul-Fitr was an occasion for great fun and celebration, especially when Ama Fatima was around. Days before the coming of Eid, she had started packing her Eid boxes, slowly filling them with goodies, sweets and gifts for the children as the last days of Ramadan passed by.

“Alhamdulillah, the moon has been sighted. It’s Eid tomorrow!” said Bilal excitedly.

The children clapped their hands and hugged each other. They could not wait for Ama Fatima’s Eid party tomorrow.

Join Ama Fatima’s family as they celebrated Eid by thanking Allah for His blessings, helping the poor and the needy around them and sharing their love and happiness by having a great Eid party for the children.
