What’s the price?

RM68

Where to buy it?

Simply contact us, yeay!

What are the special features?

  • A set of 10 books of early reading series
  • With simple & bright animation, and a single sentence on each page.
  • Designed to instill awareness in young children of the existence of Allah, the Supreme Creator

Review

Like most children books, these books are brightly coloured with simple cartoons, and will draw in kids like a moth to a flame. The books are made of thick and glossy paper like cardstock used for craft purposes. Each book has 8 pages with a single sentence on each page printed in large, easy-to-read fonts.

The titles of the books are:

1. Allah Makes Us
2. Allah Makes Apples
3. Allah Makes Cats
4. Allah Makes Flowers
5. Allah Makes Birds
6. Allah Makes Trees
7. Allah Makes Fish
8. Allah Makes Mountains
9. Allah Makes the sun
10. Allah Makes our world

There’s an instruction or guide at the beginning for parents on how to use the books to teach a child to read, and a glossary of new words learned in each book at the end.

What I like about it

Each book is short and sweet, the perfect length for a young, mind-wandering child. You as the parent can set the pace and mood. You can zip through all ten books before bedtime when your kids are tired and just want to cuddle up. Or, you can take it slow one book at a time and point to each word you read to aid word recognition when your child is in the mood to learn.

What I don’t like about it

Nothing!

Conclusion

Not only it teaches your child to read, it also teaches him or her that Allah is our God who creates everything in this world. Talk about a multifunction book. A must-have for your library collection!

What do we say…. (A Guide to Islamic Manners) September 24, 2012

What is it?

What do we say…. (A Guide to Islamic Manners)

What’s the price?

RM30

Where to buy it?

Simply contact us, yeay!

What are the special features?

  • A hard-cover book teaching some standard Islamic supplications (du’a) in different situations
  • Suitable for pre-schoolers of 3-6 years of age
  • Designed to instill awareness in young children that God constantly watches over all human beings, and consciousness that everything they do is guided by Islamic teachings

Review

The very first and foremost basic supplication (du’a) that a young child usually learns is of course, Bismillah before eating. But what to say after we finish eating, when we sneeze, when we hear someone else sneeze, when we see something beautiful, or even when we’re scared?

Just like the English teaches us to say our Please’s and Thank You’s, as a Muslim, it’s just as important that a child learns Islamic manners right from the start. This book is an excellent visual aid to demonstrate what to say in different occasions.

For example, ‘Alhamdulillah’ after we finish eating and after we sneeze. Just like the English say ‘Bless you’ after someone else sneezes, a Muslim should say ‘Yarhamukallah’ which means ‘May Allah have mercy on you’. We say ‘Subhanallah’ when we say something beautiful and ‘Innalillah’ when we lose something. There’s also something to say we say farewell to friends, ‘Fi Amanillah’. (I have to confess, I didn’t know that.)

There is a glossary at the back of the book explaining the meanings of each supplication which is very useful for parents.

What I like about it

The structure of the book is straight forward and simple, each page starts with the same “What do we say”, making it seem like a nursery rhyme book. The pictures are descriptive and easy for young children to understand. Even my 2 ½ year old boy could understand the pictures and could follow the correct supplication.

What I don’t like about it

Nothing to report here.

Conclusion

A very simple way to teach the basics of Islamic manners, with descriptive pictures and simple words. Nice!

 

Prophet Muhammad (SAW): The Last Sermon in a cute booklet

What is it?

Prophet Muhammad (SAW): The Last Sermon booklet

What’s the price?

RM15

Where to buy it?

Simply contact us, yeay!

What are the special features?

  • The booklet consists of 23 glossy, fully illustrated pages of Prophet Muhammad’s last sermon, presented by Owh So Muslim http://www.owhsomuslim.com/
  • A beautiful & practical summarization of his last sermon.
  • You can search for the last sermon on the Internet & read up about it such as the one here, where the writer describes the Prophet’s last sermon as one of the earliest declarations of human rights in written history, delivered more than 1,400 years ago.

Review

The final sermon by Prophet Muhammad SAW was delivered during the Hajj of Year 10 on 9th Dhul-Hijjah at MountArafah. As quoted from Imam Abdullah Antepli from the HuffingtonPost,

“Almost everything he says in this prophetic sermon was almost unheard of and inconceivable prior to the arrival of Islam. The prophet of Islam addresses some of the core universal values in a society where those values are long forgotten and violated in a systemic basis.”

“In this sermon of Muhammad, Muslims find their deep commitment to the universal human values such as sacredness of life and property, equality, justice, peace and more. Upon these high universal values, the religion of Islam was built. “

This little booklet is a cheerful illustrative summary of the Prophet’s last Sermon. Shamefully, I have to admit, that this is my first time reading about this last sermon. This cute little book has intrigued me and compelled me to do further reading on this sermon, and what I read bring tears to my eyes. (Yup, I’m a really a sucker at this heart-warming stuff.)

My favourite part has to be the ones about women rights. One of it is:

“Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.”

Tip for wives: Buy this booklet, show this page to your dear husbands. Make sure he gets the message!

What I like about it

I think the Owh So Muslim team did a great job, relaying a legendary message of Prophet Muhammad SAW in such a wonderful, fun way. This book is not only for the kids, but is suitable for all age groups.

What I don’t like about it

Zilch. Nada. That means nothing, by the way.

Conclusion

Love, love, love! This cute little book is guaranteed to warm your heart as it did mine. Highly recommended!
