Sarah and Ahmed aspire to create beautiful books to nourish and integrate younger generations holistically into their respective religions; not so much through dogma, but through something much deeper and more esoteric. For their endeavour, they have been commissioned to establish a foundational Islamic library for children ages 0-5 years by Acamedia Publishing, a publishing house founded by Moez Masoud. Their first two books will be based on two mystical supplications often recited by the Prophet Muhammed ﷺ. These two prayers are universal in nature and can be read by anyone regardless of religion or denomination. We aim to revive the Islamic tradition, within our children, one book at a time!
'A Children's Prayer of Light: An Adaptation from the Tradition of the Prophet Muhammad'
Afterword by Moez Masoud
(For children ages 0-5)
Upcoming Book: 'A Children's Prayer of Unity'
'A Children's Prayer of Unity', based on a supplication of 'tawhid', was often recited by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. It will familiarize children with basic Islamic formulas that they will use throughout their lives, including the testimonies of the Shahada. Furthermore, it will teach them humility before God since this prayer emphasizes God’s transcendence. The illustrations will serve as symbols (ayat) that will allow for children to comprehend the grandeur of God.
The book will contain the prayer in Arabic, in transliteration and in translation and will include a commentary.
For children ages 0-5 years.
