THE BROKEN IDOL AND JEWISH RABBI are the stories of ’Amr Ibn al-Jamuh (عَمرو اِبن الجموح) and Abdullah Ibn Salam (عبدالله اِبن سلام), both Companions of the Blessed Prophet Muhammad. Both were men of prominence but from different backgrounds; ’Amr was one of the chiefs in Yathrib (یثرب), now known as Madina (مدینه), Abdullah was a respected Rabbinic scholar of the Jewish community in Madina.
Meant for 8–14 year olds, the stories tell how one evening they sat with some friends in the courtyard of the mosque and related how they came to embrace Islam.

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.
