Who Will Help Me Make Iftar? By Asmaa Hussein


A lovely story that shows faith, tradition and community that ends with Islamic words of wisdom. This book is set in Turkey, and because of my familiarity with the Turkish culture I really appreciate the details of the illustrations; grandma's attire, the tea cups, the china cabinet.

📖

Mustafa Amca needs help to make iftar for the neighbours in order to keep their ramadan tradition alive. This year his wife is not well, so he seeks help from others for this special feast. His daughter, his friend, his neighbour and granddaughter seem to have petty excuses and cannot accommodate to his request. Mustafa Amca still carries on and keeps working hard in the kitchen to prepare the dishes on his own. At iftar time, once the food is ready to be served, everyone feels too guilty to eat since they haven't contributed to the iftar. Mustafa Amca kindly reminds them that God loves those who are generous with their loved ones and the needy thus he always wants to be loved by God. This motivates everyone to participate in the after-dinner clean up.

📖

Great lesson of generosity for kids and an important reminder for the adults in their lives.
