Abstract of chapters[edit | edit source]

The author begins her book with an introduction to Islam and Muslim, and then addresses the important rituals of this religion related to Muslims. She examines the reasons for religious celebrations and how they begin. Meanwhile she introduces some of the main and important cases of Islam, such as the Quran, Salah, Hadith, the Prophet, etc. Since the narrators of the book are two children, it is simplistic and poorly written.

Here are some parts of book:

About Koran[edit | edit source]

Muslims believe that the Koran is Allah's final book of guidance, which was revealed to the Prophet j Muhammad for all humankind. (Page 8)

About hadith[edit | edit source]

The word hadith means "saying." The hadith are reports of what the Prophet Muhammad said.' Because he was the living example of Islamic teaching, knowing what he said about how to live is very important to Muslims. (Page 10)

about prayer positions[edit | edit source]

Performing salah not only means saying particular words but also making specific movements. Someone even called salah "the Yoga of Islam" because the physical positions help Muslims to think about what they are doing and saying to Allah. When Muslims pray, they take positions that remind them of how they should behave in front of their Creator. (Page 12)
