Description: A bedtime book for young Muslims, Jews, and Christians, in which flowers close their petals, plants close their leaves, and babies close their eyes. ‘God’s peace be with you. God made the night. It is time to close your eyes tonight.’ It includes the prayer of Abraham for his sons (upon them be peace). This title was made specifically as a gift for a baby’s special religious occasion, and generally for interfaith Abrahamic families and friends, and it is only available via Amazon.
Review: Behold, the latest addition to our children’s books collection: Sleep in God’s Protection. I ordered this a few weeks ago, and it was sitting at the leasing office all along unbeknownst of me. Subhanallah…the things I do sometimes.
Anyways, when we finished reading Sleep in God’s Protection, the hadith “When the wings of the night spread , keep your children in, for the devils come out at that time” came to mind. We’re all vulnerable during our sleep especially babies.
Sleep in God’s Protection gives both the child and the parent an assurance that God will protect them during the night. About 26 pages, it’s also an interfaith children’s book because the foundation of Sleep in God’s Protection lays upon Abraham’s (aleihi salam) prayers to Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) for the safety of his children – Ishmael and Isaac).
Our Rassullulah (sallallahu aleihi wassalam) also repeated the protection supplications to his grandsons; Hassan and Hussein (May Allah be pleased with them) and told them the origin of the duas.
To continue, Sleep in God’s Protection is also very colorful, and we enjoyed the rich colors used and the simple texts. My little ABsaurus cooed and spoke utter gibberish throughout our different reading sessions. He recognizes some letters since we’re learning the alphabet alhamdullilah.
