“Did Musa ST-ST-Stutter too?” is a motivational children’s book written by Keila Kaci and published by Prolance publishing.
This poetry book revolves around a child named Ibrahimi who makes an excuse to hide from school due to his speech problem. Ibrahimi has to present a speech in front of his whole class but, he is afraid to go to school because he thinks all his class fellows will make fun of him while he stutters during the speech.
His mother, being a wise woman, understands the whole situation and starts to tell him how our Nabi Musa (Prophet Moses) stuttered too but, he was given such a high rank by God. Not only this, but people used to follow his commands.
She further explains that Musa was also given physical strength but, he is known for his call to Allah by his speech.
She also teaches him to recite the dua (supplication) that Musa used to pray.
I love how this book conveys a vast message.
1) A wise and well-educated mother (both religiously and wordly) is very important for the good upbringing of children. A child may have a physical or mental disability but, only a good mother can make a successful person out of him/her.
2) Any person , whether a child or an adult, should never make fun of someone’s disability. Instead, they should encourage the person to do better. Children should be advised to be kind and considerate to their class mates.
3) A disability is not a punishment from Allah, it’s a test and blessed is the one who passes this test through patience.
So, you must know by now, how important is this book for your kid’s bookshelf? 😊
“My first Muslim Potty book” is an educational children’s book perfectly rhymed and written by Yousfa Janjua, beautifully illustrated by Golnar Servatian, and published by Prolance publishing.
In this book, the mother beautifully explains how the child was once a crawling baby but, now he has grown up and need to learn how to use the washroom by himself. Though, the parents will be there for him to help through the process.
I really liked this book. The first thing that caught my attention was its title. Then, when I read the book, I extremely appreciated the author for explaining the whole thing in such a poetic, interesting and sagacious way. Such educational books are very important for our generation so that they may be brought up properly.
The book even contains Islamic terms and duas (supplications) for children to teach them the process of “tahaara” (purity) in the light of religion.
I must say that it’s important to purchase this book for your growing children no matter which religion you follow. Every religion teaches purity 🙂
“Believe” is a concise self-development book published by Prolance publishing.
The author “A.E” who chose to remain anonymous compiled the do’s and don’ts from the 114 chapters of the Holy Quran for personal use, but then thought to publish a book for others to benefit from it.
The book is divided into four chapters, extracting the do’s and don’ts of worship, character, giving & taking, relationships, and eating & dressing, along with notebook pages for making your own notes.
This book is ideal for everyone, but specially children and teenagers for learning the etiquettes of living mentioned in the Holy Quran as it is precise and easily understandable. I would totally recommend this book to be added to your reading list.

“Unveiled” is an exceptionally beautiful poetry book, written by “Rumki Chowdhury” and published by Djarabi Kitabs Publishing.
This book highlights the sensitive matter of hijab and the mentality related to it in a very engaging and detailed way. The contents are divided into four parts, i.e. Mind, Body, Soul and My Hijab Story.
The first three parts being poetry followed by a personal hijab story of the author.
I really enjoyed reading this book and what actually impressed me are the comparisons that are being used to justify the hijabis.
This book can really help in increasing the awareness that hijabs do not limit a woman from performing activities or achieving anything she wants. Totally recommended!
