This simple story about a young Muslim family and how they use basic duas in their everyday life is a fun, effective way for children to learn a selection of duas in Arabic together with their English meanings. The story shows how the youngest member of the family, Safiyya, learns to say her first Arabic words simply by listening to those around her. It's a book that demonstrates how basic dua is incorporated into the daily life of a Muslim family using a combination of text and sound.
"It's Safiyya's first day at nursery today," says Mum. "And I have a spelling test today," says Sara. "And I have a big football match today," says Ali "Everything will go well, Insha'Allah," reassures Mum, "but don't forget to say Bismillah before beginning anything you do." "I'm done, Al-Hamdulillah," says Ali. "Your pancakes are the best Mum!" "Jazakallahu Khairan," says Mum.
