Book Review 3: Tales from Dhikarville

Book Review 3: Tales from Dhikarville

We all love the Mr Men Series, right? Well, here’s the Islamic version!

These books are very similar in style and size, but the people in Dhikarville are all based on Islamic concepts from Salaam to Shukr! And there are two series… Brother and Little Sister – check out the photos for more info. Just FYI – not all of them are available yet.

P.S. They do merchandise too! Check out their FB page for more info –https://www.facebook.com/TalesFromDhikarville

The first of the series is Brother Salaam: “Take a tour of Dhikarville with Brother Salaam as he introduces all the Brothers to you, whilst teaching you about the importance of saying salaam along the way!”

Book review 2: The Princess Series (based on Asma ul Husna)

Book review 2: The Princess Series (based on Asma ul Husna)

I don’t know about all of you who have young girls at home, but my 6 year old loves princesses. We have all heard of all the negative hype around Disney Princesses and the connotations they come with, so what better stories to give her to read as alternatives than a Princess series based on the 99 Names of Allah?!

There are 4 books out there so far, and we look forward to many more Inshallah.

“The Princess Series has been inspired by The Asma Ul Husna, “The 99 Names of Allah.” Each Princess has been named after a particular attribute of Allah. For example, Al-Shahid, “The Witness”, therefore the Princess has been named Princess Shahida. She embodies this attribute and tells the truth after witnessing a crime. The aim of the Princess Series is to inspire your girls to both learn the 99 Names of Allah and to learn from their meanings.”

 

 

 

Book Review 1: The Victory Boys

Book Review 1: The Victory Boys

As promised on facebook, in between series we shall have some book reviews inshallah!

Here is the first one: The Victory Boys (By Jamal Orme)

I particularly like this book because of its appeal to older children, especially boys – combining aspects of faith and secular life, the book tackles an everyday topic in our lives of whether we should stick things in boxes or make them work side-by-side.

Here is the blurb!

“Junayd and his friends think madrasa is a waste of time, and older brother Saleem is fast becoming the black sheep of the family. That is, until the Imam of the mosque initiates an extra-curricular project outside his comfort zone. But can faith and football flourish side-by-side?”

Has anyone read it already? If so, please share your thoughts! My 8 year old loved it
