Ramadan mubarak! May you be granted the blessings of Ramadan!

With Ramadan now here, and the first Muslim children’s book day approaching – #IslamicBookDay, 10 Ramadan, 2015 – I thought I’d share a selection of lines from children’s books that I have found particularly pleasing to read….

3A Trust of Treasures quote

4Amira Totally Chocolate World quote

5Going to Mecca quote

6Islamic Nursery Rhymes quote

7Sameera Hijab quote

Glossary

AS – Alayhas Salaam, meaning ‘upon him be peace’

fajr – fajr salah, the ritual prayer after dawn and before sunrise

S –Salallahu alayhi wa sallam, meaning ‘may blessings and peace be upon him’

SWT – Subhanahu wa ta’ala, meaning ‘glory to Him, the exalted’

 

For me, some of the above lines have felt almost delicious to read aloud. But we’re all different, favouring different styles and content. What lines have you found particularly pleasing in Muslim children’s books for youngsters?
