Maynumah's Musing: How Much Does Allah Love me?

by Heba Subeh Hyder Illustrated by Aatena Hasan


This book is about a cute little girl named Maynumah, curious about ALLAH (subhannanu wa Ta'ala) and it goes into her amazing imagination about how Allah Created so many things and her love for him. She deeply wanted to know how much Allah loved her back, so she goes and asks her mother this big question! Find out the answer and get this book! It's great :)


Hena khan has written and published so many beautiful Islamic children's books. I highlighted a couple here but definitely check out more of her books on her website.

Golden Dome's and Silver Lanterns is a great book that relates the colors to Islamic themes and culture of Muslims. I think this book specifically is great for younger kids learning colors and religion at the same time.

Hena Khan was also awarded Top 10 Religious books of 2009 with the holiday story "Night of the Moon."

"Under My Hijab" talks about a young girl that observes women in her life wearing the hijab in different ways.

"Like the Moon Loves the Sky," is a beautiful ode of unconditional love to their child “Inshallah you find wonder in birds as they fly. Inshallah you are loved like moon loves the sky.


"Allah Made us all different ,Be yourself." By Rabia Gelgi is about a little bird that goes on a little journey wanting to be another animal instead of herself and realizes that God created each animal a specific way and that she was special as that bird. Its a cute story of loving how you are made and I think encourages children to love how they are created.

She also wrote "The little girl says Alhamdullilah" which reminds kids about saying alhamdullilah for what we have and a great way to reinforce the meaning of Alhamdilulah.

A Basketball Game On Wake Street By Batouly Camara

One of my favorite books is called "A basketball Game on Wake street", written by Batouly Camara and illustrated by Shifa Annisa. )- This very unique book is talks about a young girl named Aicha who wants to play basketball with her friends and create a dream team. Now this dream team is not like any other dream team. Its about a team of “Wake warriors” that is open to everyone with “beautiful and unique abilities”

Batouly also founded WAKE which is Women and Kids Empowerment a US based non profit corporation that serves teen girls and young women in New work and Guinea West Africa to the “ whole-girl approach to develop their confidence through growth mentorship.
