Assalam aleykoum warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
I start all post apologising if my English is not perfect but I’m French living in UK for a year and a half.
Today I’m going to talk about books I bought for my daughter.
Even if these books are for age 3-6 I already started to read them to my daughter since she is born.
Maybe because I like to read and I hope she will too and also because my English is not that good and I want to read in English so we both will learn more vocabulary.
As I presume she will like princesses (well I like them !) I found this collection of princesses stories.
It’s a collection of 8 books. We have 6.
It’s not that I didn’t find all of them but I chose not to buy 2 of them : One is about a circus (and I don’t like circus because of the way animals are treated to learn some tricks so I kind of boycott it), and the second one about a spider … And I am arachnophobiac …
Each book start with Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim (in the name of Allah the most beneficient the most merciful) and finish with Alhamdulillah Rabbil Aalameen (praise to Allah the Lord of all the worlds).
Each book tells a story about a Princesse whom name is inspired from Asma Ul Husna and each princess show us a Muslim value.
Al-Nur ~ The light = Princesse Noura who cares for the environment (plants & animals)…
Ar-Rasheed ~ The guide = Princess Rasheeda who is very smart and likes To read and learn…
Al-Karim~ The Generous = Princess Karima who helps people in need…
Al-Aziz~ The Mighty = Princess Aziza a nice person who cares a lot about her family…
Al-Shahid~ The witness = Princess Shahida , very curious who wants to know about the world…
Al-Haleem~ The forebearing = Princess Haleema who is very loving and caring…
What I like about these books ?
First we are learning about Allah’s names and their meanings (they should definitely edit 99 books !), second these Princesses are actively doing things for the ummah.
In occidental princesses stories the princes do all the hard work ! In these Princesses are not waiting for someone to change their life, they do their part ! And I like it ! This is what life is about! Our own good deeds ! Because in theses books it’s all about it !
I think it’s good for my daughter to hear stories about Princesses who do Good deeds for the others, hope it will encourage her to do the same ! I will always encourage her to do it anyway 😊
Where to buy these books?
At the back of each book there is the name of this website but I found mine on eBay.
I post when my baby is asleep and I finished my chores, so be patient it’s sunnah ❤️
