Superheroes of Islam: Abu Bakr As-Siddiq رضي الله عنه — A Review

Assalamu aleikum!

Author: Ammar Kidwai

Summary: “Superheroes of Islam” is a book series that portrays the lives of past Muslim Heroes through the lenses of a young author. The book series intends to teach and give children a sense of pride in Islamic Heritage and use the lives of the Rightly Guided Leaders and Sahabas as an example of true heroes to follow. The first book of the series reveals a little bit about the life of the first Khalifa, and the lessons we should learn from his life.

Age Range: 3 – 9

Review: Superheroes of Islam Book 1 is a picture book account of a young Muslim author about the righteous sahaba Abu Bakr As-Siddiq رضي الله عنه.

The book is faceless and uses simple symbolism to get to the point. In addition, using rhetorical questions, the author attempts to engage his audience in his short storytelling account of this un-forgetful character. Masha’Allah.

Superheroes of Islam Book 1 ends with some coloring pages to try as an activity with the young ones. My son and I actually colored these last tidbits after we read it.

Above all, Superheroes of Islam: Abu Bakr As-Siddiq رضي الله عنه is worth adding to your Muslim homeschooling book list.

Kuddos to this young author for realizing and knowing who the real heroes are for the benefit of this life and the next. May Allah continue to bless and support his efforts, Allahumma aameen.
