Product Description

THE LONGING HEART: Story of Abu Dhar (ابوذر الغفاری رضی الله عنه), a young man who felt a yearning to meet the Blessed Prophet. First he sent his brother to find out more about the Blessed Prophet, but the news his brother brought back was not sufficient to quench Abu Dhar’s curiosity.

Intended for 8–14 year olds, the story tells how Abu Dhar then travelled to Makka and roamed the streets in search of the Blessed Prophet. It was not until he came across Sayedina Ali, with whom he spent two nights, that he was directed to the Blessed Prophet. The kindness of the Blessed Prophet and the simplicity of his messages so impressed Abu Dhar that he had no hesitation in accepting Islam and it gave him the courage to return home to carry the same message to his people
With full color illustrations.

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.

Other Books in The Series Are:
  • A Great Friend of Children
  • The Brave Boy
  • The Desert Chief
  • The Kingdom of Justice
  • The Long Search
  • Love All Creatures
  • Love at Home
  • Love Your Brother, Love Your Neighbour
  • Love Your God (Out Of Print)
  • The Persecutor Comes Home
  • Stories of the Broken Idol and the Jewish Rabbi
  • Stories of the Caliphs (Out Of Print)
  • The Wise Poet
