The perfect book to introduce children to the Gift of Prayer (Salah).
This simple but beautiful book introduces children to the second pillar of Islam; the five daily prayers. It starts with reference to the Night Journey 'Isra wal Miraj' in which Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) first received the Gift of Prayer. It outlines some of the practical aspects of Salah and explains why, when and where Muslims can pray in a way that will provide a positive understanding of the most important act of worship for Muslims.
It is a book to be treasured by children, with large, colourful illustrations and carefully written text that children will understand and enjoy.
