Thoughts: Mr. Ramadhan Moon is one of the cutest and creative children’s story I have ever read. Mr. Ramadhan Moon is also a nice and welcomed change from the assumption that the moon is of female gender. It accompanies children and family in a love and supporting journey.
Check out some pictures below:
Mr. Ramadhan Moon is a reminder of salat and thoughtful play in the pic above masha’Allah.
Mr. Ramadhan Moon is a reminder to children to brush their teeth with miswak or a toothbrush.
Mr. Ramadhan Moon is also an interfaith activist.
Mr. Ramadhan Moon is a tea party buddy.
Mr. Ramadhan Moon embraces diversity alhamdullilah.
Mr. Ramadhan Moon makes a wonderful gift before the Eid and after the Eid. You can buy your copy plus the toy here on Etsy. It’s a bit pricy but Ramadhan is once a year so please splurge a little 😉 insha’Allah to support this small Muslim business. And 10% of the profits go the Syrian crisis aid masha’Allah. This will be money well spent insha’Allah.

You can follow the chronicles of Mr. Ramadhan Moon here on Facebook insha’Allah.
Jazak’Allah khair for reading,
