A to Z Just Like The Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.s) by Aisha Ibrahim
📚 BOOK REVIEW 📚
Title: A to Z Just Like The Prophet Muhammad (salAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)
Author: Aisha Ibrahim
Illustrator: Aisha Aamir
Islamic Content: Following Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
This is an alphabet book that intersects many concept for the little ones. Some are more upfront and obvious, and others take a little more effort in observation. The listeners are introduced to the letters, to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his teachings, many diverse characters, through names and illustrations.
The approach of this book is absolutely fantastic, it makes it so memorable and stand out from the crowd in this category. The main purpose of this book is to expose the little ones to the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa sallam). The repetition of salawat makes it easy for the little ones to learn it. For each letter of the alphabet, there are four names (2 boys and 2 girls) and a sunnah from the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa sallem). Some mentioned are practical daily habits such as saying bismillah before eating or greeting others with a smile. And some are traits and mannerisms that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) encouraged Muslims to practice such as forgiveness and honesty. I really love the range of diversity within this book through the names stated as well as the illustrations. My kids were excited to recognize familiar a few names of the people in their lives. I appreciated the new vocabulary which initiated a new discussion for us. My 1st grader has been reading this book for his little sister at bedtime the last few days, so that's a win for me! The large size of the book and the text makes this book an excellent choice for group readings (inshaAllah when we get back to them). One of a kind addition to any Muslim bookshelf.
