Summary: By understanding your child’s development you can help to nurture your child’s growth in the six areas of development: thinking and intellect, speech and language, motor skills, physical growth, emotional, and moral development.This is a practical book for the Muslim parent, full of activities to nurture each area of growth. Know what to do, when and how.

Review: I always knew by instinct not to rush my child into achieving milestones because the sunnah says that until the child is seven years old, it’s all about playing with the child. Not only did people around me (Pediatrician included) made me feel at times like an unfit mother, they didn’t hide it. What did I do? I prayed on it, and I tuned them out because there was a little voice inside me that kept telling me to just persevere and be patient with my child’s development. And I did, and he got there when he was ready and on his own chef. It hasn’t been easy. I mean how could they dismiss the fact that each child learns and grows at their own pace. It simply baffled me.

Anyway, I nurtured my son’s growth and development by reading any parenting books I could get my hands on, and they supported my decision to let children be children. However, when I came across Understand Your Child’s Development or UYCD, I felt complete and happy at last. This book covers the child’s life cycle to the teenage years; which is a plus alhamdullilah. With in-depth, concrete Islamic and scientific evidences, the book felt like a dream come true.

So in these lights, UYCD is an amazing resource and a must-have for every Muslim parent. May Allah always help us raise great citizens, vicegerents of this earth and above all, great Muslims, aameen.

The Candle and The Flame — An Interview with the Author

Between Sisters, SVP!

Nafiza the candle and the flame

Nafiza Azad is an avid reader and reviewer of YA books. Today she is at our bookstore to discuss her debut YA high fantasy novel The Candle and the Flame. To give you a little background on this book, please read the summary below.

Azad’s debut YA fantasy is set in a city along the Silk Road that is a refuge for those of all faiths, where a young woman is threatened by the war between two clans of powerful djinn.

Fatima lives in the city of Noor, a thriving stop along the Silk Road. There the music of myriad languages fills the air, and people of all faiths weave their lives together. However, the city bears scars of its recent past, when the chaotic tribe of Shayateen djinn slaughtered its entire population — except for Fatima and two other humans. Now ruled by a new maharajah, Noor is…

Your Son Can Be Your Diaby (Henna) Buddy Too

Assalamu aleikum!

eid tatoo 3

In West Africa, Henna is often referred to as Diaby (Dee-ya-bee.) On the eve of eid, I looked forward to apply Diaby on my hands and feet even if I don’t have a daughter. It was more of a self-care intention. Anyway, my son wanted to take part in it, and I kept telling him that it’s only for girls, and that he had more hair and a beard, he could have partook in. Boy that I was wrong.

After his vehement requests and my husband saying once it was fine for him to play with Henna, I came to the conclusion that he could become my henna buddy. Yes, I’m not always right, haha!

I decided then that Diaby would take the role of a harmless kid’s tattoo. The lessons I learn from being a Mom are simply too many to list here. Alhamdullilah.

You learn more about yourself in the journey actually. Eid Mubarak folks!

Thanks for reading,
