Tell Me About the Hajj:
The story of hajj, the pilgrimage to Makkah, begins over 4000 years ago when, following the Divine command, the Prophet Ibrahim traveled for a long distance until he reached the hot, barren lands of Arabia. There he left his wife, Hagar, and his little baby, Ismail.
The story goes on to tell how Hagar struggled to find water for her baby and how at last the miraculous Zamzam spring came gushing out and saved their lives. This is followed by the great sacrifice of Ibrahim, the building of the Kabah and the call to Hajj.
Today, in response to this call, and following in the footsteps of the Prophet Muhammad, over two million believers from every corner of the globe gather in Makkah every year.
This book explains the importance of the annual pilgrimage - one of the pillars of Islam - with a special focus on the Prophet Muhammad's Hajj. These exciting historical events are presented in a simple, informative style, with beautiful illustrations, so that young people may understand and enjoy them.
Tell Me About Yusuf:
This book tells the Prophet Yusuf (or Joseph) and his brothers. It starts in Yusuf’s early childhood when his family used to live in tents in the desert, then moves on to the time when he was almost grown up and his brothers threw him into a dry well. It describes how this horrific incident comes as a blessing in disguise, for the young Yusuf was taken to Egypt by a caravan and ultimately made a powerful and trusted minister of the Egyptian king. He was also made a prophet by Allah.
This is a deluxe, hardcover large size book, excellent for long-term self study, reading aloud to children, or bedtime reading.
