Summary: Book 1 of the “Mommy, Who Is Allah?” series focuses on the attribute of Allah, Al-Khaliq; The Creator. Throughout the story, children will learn that Allah has created all that exists.
Thoughts: AbdulRahman also known as Dahumie is a very sweet and curious boy. He is more attentive than he used to be and that’s normal. In Al-Khaliq (The Creator), Dahumie indulges in his mother’s teachings about Allah. To make it fun and grab more of his attention, Mommy uses imaginary finger cymbals (instruments) to snap her fingers and introduce the creations of Allah; especially the stars.
Al-Khaliq (The Creator) is a very fun, sweet, and loving book we can use to each one of the attribute of Allah to our young mumeens. Knowing this name of Allah has many rewards masha’Allah, and it’s wonderful that the Author started with this particular attribute to help with the education of young Muslims.
I recommend it to Muslim Moms without any bias ;).
Jazakh’Allah khair for reading,
