Islamic Content: reading the Qur'an

Concerns: None


Muna struggles to read the qur'an in many different ways. the letters from the throat don't come easy to her, sometimes she misses a letter and sometimes she is too shy to read out loud. So how does she keep herself from giving up?


Okay, I have to admit, I wasn't immediately drawn to this book when I saw the cover. And I should know better than to judge a book by its cover so I took the risk when I was being offered this book for review. And I am so glad I did. The approach of this book is very clever. It is written in 1st person narrated by Muna herself. She expresses all the different ways she struggles when she tries to read the Qur'an but also reminds herself how she gets support from her family, her teacher and peers. She motivates herself through remembering the rewards of reading each letter emphasizing the rewards of the one that struggles and keeps trying. Readers will find this book extremely relatable to Muna and it can be a helpful reminder for them to keep on going. It is written in easy and simple rhyme, and to my surprise, I did flow easily throughout. Honestly, not only does your child's bookshelf needs this book, but it should be a must read in madrassah classes as a gentle reminder that we all struggle in some way to keep reading the Qur'an.
