Following from the popular 'The Prophet's Pond' book, Learning Roots releases another incredibly beautiful book describing the Prophet Muhammed SAW to children.
'The Prophet Described' weaves together classical accounts of the appearance and character of Allah’s finest creation, using the narrations of those closest to him. Expertly crafted into a story-conversation between a mother and son, and using flowing, rhyming text, this book makes learning about Allah’s Messenger (SAW), a rich and captivating experience. With spectacular illustrations that subtly echo the descriptions, this book is a treasure to be read over and over again.
You’ll be left in awe, wonder and warmth by not just your increased love for the Prophet Muhammad, but even more so, by his love for you.
If your child hasn’t experienced this splendid tale, then they’re really missing out on something powerful. Here’s why:
- The Prophet Described is a panoramic picture book with stunning imagery that captivates and elevates your child’s senses and attention, all in an Islamic themed story.
- The book is written in repetitive rhyming prose that encourages your child’s active participation in reading the story and increasing their enjoyment of the experience.
- By the time your child has completed the book (which, by the way, they’ll want to read again and again!) they would have effortlessly memorised the description of the Prophet (S) in-sha-Allah.
- The book is based upon verified hadith narrations so you can rest assured that your child is receiving sound and solid knowledge of Islam.
The Prophet (S) Described is the world’s first and only children's picture book in the English language dedicated to the Shama'il (descriptions) of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in story form, and has made the cheeks of countless parents and children wet with loving tears in their longing to meet the Messenger of Allah (SAW).
"Masha’Allah a wonderful read with my 6 year old and 2.5 year old. They loved how the story rhymed throughout and it really kept the children engaged . I highly recommend this story for introducing young children to the Prophet (SAW)."
