Khadijah : Mother Of History's Greatest NationRecommended Age Group: 9 years or above
Your Mother is a Legend
You have another mother. You’ve never seen her. You’ve never heard her voice. You’ve never perhaps even thought of her as your mother. But she is your mother nonetheless. And if you get to Jannah, your mother will there, waiting to meet you.
Her name is Khadijah (RA).
She was the first wife of the Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم), the first to believe in his message and the first mother of the greatest nation history has ever seen.
As you work towards reaching Jannah, and meeting your mother Khadijah, it will certainly help if you did a little preparation beforehand and got to know about her story.This book has been specially crafted to help you do that.
You see, most of the stories you’ve heard about Khadijah have probably been raw translations from classical sources. While they sound captivating in the original Arabic language, there’s quite a lot that’s lost when they are translated into English.
So rather than sticking with a dry narrative, Learning Roots decided to get to the core of the stories and tell them in a fluid style that the modern reader is accustomed to today. Here is how the author Fatimah Barkatulla achieved this:
- You’ll find that the rich descriptions immerse you within the scenes.
- A flowing narrative has been weaved that renders a seamless reading experience.
- Stuck to historical sources, so the story loses nothing of its original iman elevating inspiration.
- Crafted the book with a large text layout making it accessible for young readers as well as adults.
So get to know your mother, give this book a read, inspire yourself for that meeting in
This book is an ideal read for teens and adults as well as late Primary aged children.
