I thought of writing a children’s book with all the 99 names of Allah in it to make it comprehensive but I decided against it. Why? The book will go over the maximum page requirement for traditionally published children’s books. Besides, it will become very vague and not delve deeper in the meaning of the 99 attributes like I want.
Now, there are other books soon to be published and already on the market to teach our young believers all the Names of the The Creator (Al-Khaliq). Check them out!
1. Al-Khaliq (The Creator) by Zainab Jones
Al-Khaliq (The Creator) will be published soon by Djarabi Kitabs Publishing insha’Allah. The story follows little Abdulrahman also known as “Dahumie” as he uncovers that Allah created all that exist. It’s a very cute and fun story showing a love bond between a mother and her son masha’Allah. The author plans on writing 5 more books in the series bi’ithnillah. Masha’Allah! We pray that Allah fulfill her dreams and make them mubarak for her, ameen.
Susan Zainab Jones’ book 1 will be available on Amazon and here insha’Allah.
2. The One by Manaal Jafrey-Razaque
“The One is a 32 page children’s book in The Fundamental Series of Author Manaal Jafrey-Razaque…The One will for sure help us raise young believers by teaching them 18 out of the 99 names of Allah. That said the book is not preachy at all. The drawings of everything Allah created are cute and inviting throughout the book. My son cooed with delight at the illustrations. It was precious masha’Allah…”— Papatia Feauxzar, A Ducktrinor Mom. Read the rest of the review here .
3. Allah Al-Aleem by Bint Abdul Hamid
“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…” — Papatia Feauxzar, A Ducktrinor Mom. Read the rest of the review here.
4. Al-Haseeb (The Accountant, the Reckoner, the Bringer to Account)?) by Moi!
I’ve been working on this story for a while now. Insha’Allah when things slow down work wise, I’ll focus on getting it out insha’Allah. It’s befitting wouldn’t you say so *wink* ? I hope that with this story young muminun learn early on that they need to :
- Take responsibility for their actions and reflect upon them daily
- Strive to live an honest life
- Seek constant repentance
- Display good sunnah courtesy manners
- Realize that Allah is sufficient for them and that they should only rely on him. Even though we are their parents, their ultimate loyalty should stay with Al-Haseeb insha’Allah.
Jazakh’Allah khair for reading,
