I love Muhammad (saws) board book review

It’s a well known fact that children learn through play.  Whilst reading alone can be fun,  finding different ways of learning new informations helps us to recall it better. The I love Muhammad ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) board book is a brilliant way to teach children about the final prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him). We learn about the daily rituals of the prophet [saws], and with it were learn the sunnah.  It’s not just a book to read but also a colour and wipe one. So whilst you are reading to your little ones they can be playing.  This encourages them to use more than just one sense to process new information.

This beautifully illustrated book is suitable from birth and geared towards pre-schoolers. It’s aim, to encourage love and respect for prophet Muhammad ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) I really love the colours used in the book, there’s an almost marbled effect on some of the pages which adds a richness to the book. The contrast of white and black illustrations and text against a vivid backdrop of colour makes it stand out, stimulating vision.

The text length is good but I think some of the wording is a little hard for young children to understand.  Sentences such as “sent in an age which was dark” my 4 yard old found difficult to comprehend.  I had to break it down and explain it to her. The consistency of the rhyming texts was also a little weak. I found it a little hard to find a natural rhythm to the words.  Some pages rhymed beautifully whilst others fell short. On a positive note this will teach children language development.

Aesthetically beautiful, this book will definitely teach your little one how to emulate our prophet Muhammad ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him).
