Synopsis

Islamic Year, The Surahs, Stories and Celebrations by Noorah Al-Gailani, Chris R. Smith

Reviews

Educators seeking to interpret Islam to non-Muslim audiences will find this an excellent resource. The story of the Prophet Muhammad is told in an engaging manner whilst keeping to the sacred spirit of the original texts. The festivals are explained in a simple and clear way, relating them to each aspect of the Prophet's life and teaching that they celebrate.

A sound and very helpful resource for teachers - it recognises the internal pluralism of both religious ideas and cultural expressions which characterises the Muslim communities in this country and globally.

The stories are ripe for re-telling: I enjoyed their warmth and humour. They make the life and teaching of the Prophet Muhammad caring and accessible

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
