๐Ÿ“š Does Allah Know I'm Sad? ๐Ÿ“š

Author: Hebe Subeh-Hyder

Illustrator: Aatena Hasan

Publisher: Prolance Writing

Age: 4-8

Islamic Content: loss and grief

Concerns: None


Maymunah has a special bond with Farah's cat, Filfil. When the unthinkable happens, Maymunah is undeniably sad with grief. She is worried about Farah wants to do what right to support her best friend.


This is the 3rd book in the Maymunah's Musings series. Does Allah Know I'm Sad? undertakes the heavy topic of loss/grief and focuses on how to navigate the feelings of sadness in an Islamic way.

The reader will see that being emotional is a natural part of the process; taking time and space for those emotions, sharing them with your close ones, and recognizing that Allah knows our emotional state and He hears our duas.

I love the fact that there are now a few books that are surfacing that deal with this topic. This particular story is directly connected to Islam Thus makes this book a very beneficial read for little Muslims. For me, parts of the text could have been condensed a little. Also the font size was on the small side. Definitely a beneficial read for our kids in Islamic school classrooms as well as at home.
