Bilal's Second Surprise
This imaginative new baby story for little Muslims will have your kids laughing out loud!
When Bilal wakes up to find his parents missing and Grandma sleeping in their bed, he knows it might not be an ordinary day. But when Dad walks into the house in a tired daze, Bilal is confused!
Why is Dad brushing his teeth with a comb? Has Dad forgotten how to make wudu? Where is he trying to go on Bilal's tricycle? And most importantly, where exactly is Mom?

Book Review by Anum
"This is such an adorable story. Bilal is shown as any ordinary boy interested in building things but at the same time empathic and caring towards his family. While mother is away, he goes out of his way to help his father in several ways which was just heart warming to read.
Sometimes older siblings have trouble adjusting to the arrival of a new baby but I appreciate that this book shows ways how the older brother was helpful and loving."

"we absolutely loved this book! How I wish we found it when I was expecting with my youngest. I loved how Bilal, before even knowing he was a big brother, cared so beautifully for his father in his state of exhaustion!
Truly beautiful story! MashaAllah"
