Prophet Stories from the Quran with Mini Activities by Anisah Anisah


Prophet Stories from the Quran with Mini Activities by Anisah Anisah


This book is a very brief introduction to the stories of the prophets. It includes prophet Adam, Nuh, Ibrahim, Yusuf, Musa, Sulaiman, and Yunus (peace be upon them all). One activity per story is included as well as Qur'anic ayat are referenced for each of the prophets. It touches on the uniqueness of each individual prophet that Allah has sent. Ie: Adam (a.s.) was the first person Allah created, Ibrahim (a.s.) was the one who build the Ka'aba, Sulaiman (a.s.) was able to speak to animals, etc.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I strongly believe that supporting Muslim authors in their journey of writing books is such an important task for the parents. I am no expert in the English language or grammar structure, nor do I try to be, however, when using simple sentences in children's books, I can't easily ignore the flaws in the text. Almost, every other page has a grammatical error in it, whether it's a spelling error, missing comma, incorrect tenses used or sentence structure issues. This is why a professional editor is crucial in the process of publishing a children's book.

With that out of the way, I wonder why the author has chosen to exclude prophet Muhammed, alayhi salam, from this book. Also, I feel like there is a part of the story missing from the story of Yusuf, alayhi salam. The reader is asked to guess the meaning of Yusuf's (a.s.) dream of the moon and stars prostrating to him but neglects to explain it. Instead, fast forwards to when Yusuf had the dream about the drought years later.

📚

Overall, this book is below average for me. There are other books out there that surpass this in different ways. The illustrations are just okay but the text has so much room for polishing in order to make this book great. The best thing out of this book, as a reader, is the Qur'an references made in it.
