Before the construction of a skyscraper, engineers spend huge amounts of time on the planning, excavation process and building of the foundation. And I must say, raising children as staunch believers and devout Muslims requires much more elaborate thinking, hard work and foundation-building. The foundation that we strive to build in the hearts and minds of our little ones (and ourselves too!) is that of faith; we want to connect them to Allah, His Prophets, His angels, His books and the afterlife.
The book ‘Allah Al-Aleem’ is a super cute book which can help us in this respect. Through colorful illustrations and simple words it does the wonderful job of inculcating the love and recognition of Allah Almighty in little hearts. The author, Bint Abdul Hamid, has introduced children to the many aspects of Allah’s attribute ‘Al-Aleem’ (All Knowing). Furthermore, references to relevant Qur’anic verses have been given at the bottom of the pages which can be used by parents/teachers to further the discussion about Allah (swt) and His attributes. The book is also beneficial for children who are learners of Arabic as it is in both Arabic and English.
‘Allah Al- Aleem’ is a large, 40 page hardback book. It is available for purchase from the publisher Prolance.
