Author: Eman Salem

Rating: 9/10 ๐ŸŒŸ


The little sapling had only one wish and it was for him to go to Hajj. He knows that he is rooted to the ground, yet he continuously makes dua to Allah. To his surprise, one day his dua is answered, and he embarks on this spiritual journey.



This joyful little story is beautifully presented in both English and Arabic. The reader will learn to never underestimate the power of dua, the yearning of fulfilling one of the pillars of Islam and the meaning of true friendship. It will give your kids a little glimpse of the journey of hajj although it is not meant to give details about each individual ritual. This book will get the kids excited for Eid ul-Adha and the Hajj season. My kids really enjoyed this story and had me go back to it several times.
