Call to Prayer is a fictionalized account of a young and inquisitive boy, Saeed, who engages Bilal ibn Rabah (بِلال اِبنِ رَباح), the first Muezzin of Islam, in conversation about his Call to prayer, his faith, and his experience of being in the company of the blessed Prophet Muhammad (صلی الله علیه وسلّم).
Beautifully narrated and illustrated in full color. Recommended for 7–11 year olds.
THE MUSLIM CHILDREN’S LIBRARY aims to provide young readers with something rarely found in current children’s literature; meaning in life, paths to an integrated development of personality, vistas into a world extending beyond this life. A Muslim child especially, can develop a fresh faith, a dynamic commitment, a strong identity, and a throbbing yearning and urge to struggle — all rooted in Islam.
At the same time the books are designed to be a joy to read, to hold a child’s attention and curiosity, and to increase his knowledge. Both texts and general supplementary readings are included. Each title (more than 40 titles have so far been published) is prepared for a particular group but, we hope, may find favor with all.
THE ISLAMIC FOUNDATION is an educational and research organization devoted to making Islam a living reality in our age.

The Foundation has research units in Islamic Economics, Christian-Muslim Relations, Muslim Central Asia and Literature tor Children.
To further its role in the field of higher academic studies, the foundation has recently established the Markfield Institute of Higher Education offering post-graduate courses in Islamic studies leading to MA, MPhil and PhD.
