The Perfecting the Pillars eight-book series teaches students about the first two pillars of Islam: shahada (testifying to the oneness of Allah) and salah. The other three pillars of Islam will be covered in the remaining six books of the series, which are currently under development.
The lessons in this series are based on short stories that make learning facts more enjoyable. The stories feature young children that the student can identify with, and they take place in different countries (America, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt) to give students a world view of Islam. They feature different economic and social environments to allow students to see different family structures and situations (i.e., nuclear families, orphans, needy people, widows, and interracial families).
Each book features:
- Quran and hadith references
- Highlighted vocabulary
- Review section at the end of each lesson
- Illustrations (no animals or human beings)
- Glossary of Arabic terms
These short stories feature five-year-old twins, Muhammad and Maryam, as they learn about tawheed (the oneness and unique nature of Allah). This is Part 1 of two parts in the series.
