Basirah the Basketballer says Insha'Allah by Hafsah Dabiri

Basirah the Basketballer says Insha'Allah by Hafsah Dabiri

I recently purchased this book from @ruqayas.bookshelf and I love it.

There is so much to learn from this beautiful story: teamwork, friendship, hard work, trusting Allah and accepting His decree even if it is not what we want.

Basirah is the best basketball player in the team and she is sure she will be chosen as the team captain because she says "insha'Allah". This special phrase proved to work when she got 100% on her quiz, getting the last dessert at lunch and making the shot from the free-throw line during basketball practice.

However, she was not prepared when her best friend was announced as the team captain. How does she handle it? Talks it out with her dad. I really admire Basirah's strong bond with her dad in this book. His words of wisdom make her realize that she may need to work harder as a teammate rather than just a player in order to achieve her dream to be a captain for next year.
