Many Ramadhan children’s books are overshadowed by many popular Muslim children Ramadhan books. While it’s their rizq, I also believe that it’s necessary to showcase other underdogs who deserve the spotlight too.
1. Ramadan Without Daddy by Misbah Akhtar.
This story revolves around a Jamaican Muslimah mother divorced from a South Asian Muslim brother. It portrays the reality of many single mothers and their children during the blessed month of Ramadhan. Ramadan without Daddy is one of the kind masha’Allah and it will be launching this June 2017 insha’Allah. Keep an eye out for both the print and eBook insha’Allah. For the full cover, click here.

2. Zachariah’s Perfect Day by Farrah Qazi
This story is equally important for Muslim children during Ramadhan as it depicts a young man helping with daily chores in his household especially during Ramadhan when things can get a bit challenging for mothers. He’s an exemplary character, little mumins can take example on insha’Allah. You can buy it here.

3. Mr. Ramadhan Moon by S.R.M
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. Read the rest of my review here. You can buy a copy here.
Special mention: The Shapes of Eid, according to Me. Read the full review here.
