The Courageous Children, a collection of six stories based on original sources brings out the young Shabas’ aspirations and dedication to the cause of Jihad. These stories also shed ample light on the concept and dimensions of Jihad in Islam. All the characters in these stories, imbued with their unflinching commitment to Islam and their enviable love for the Prophet (peace be upon him), stand out as models for young Muslims today.
Narrated in simple language and style these stories of determination, courage and commitment will help young Muslims to appreciate and assimilate the spirit of Jihad. Recommended for 8–14 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.
