What to expect: An introduction to one of the many attributes of Allah: Al-Aleem (The All-Knowing)
Summary: The best gift we can give our children is the knowledge of Tawheed, to know their Creator. Knowing Allah by His names will help establish their roots, and help them to attach to Allah out of love of His perfection. May Allah help us to fulfill the responsibility of bringing up our children knowing Allah and worshipping Him alone.
Thoughts: Allah Al-Aleem is a must have for young Muslim readers and young muminun. It exposes them early on to the qualities of their Al-Khaliq (The Creator). Children have so many questions. We try to answer them as much as we can and sometimes we fall short. For instance, “Mommy, why is the sky blue?” The answer to this question will not be a short reply to small minds.

Parents can appease the curiosity of Muslim children by telling them that only Allahu alim (Allah knows best). Insha’Allah, with Allah Al-Aleem as a supporting teaching aid, the muminun will be satisfied with some of the answers we give them.
