Description:     


The Last Night of Ramadan is the first of the "Enjoy Islam" book series, dedicated to produce creative literary works for children and their families who wish to understand and learn about Islam and the Muslim culture through Islamic celebrations throughout the year. This book focuses on the Holy Month of Ramadan and the traditions associated with it. Children's imaginative powers are enriched as events unfold through the beautiful medium of a puppet show, which parents can enjoy creating with their children at home, and primary school teachers can use in the classroom.

It is especially important today for both Muslims and non-Muslims to develop a factual understanding of Islam--knowledge devoid of misconceptions--and to understand the reasons behind Islam's broad appeal. Written primarily for non-Muslim children and their families, the Enjoy Islam series is also an excellent means of reinforcing what Muslim children may already know about their faith. As children read The Last Night of Ramadan, will sense traditions and moral values that Islam shares with other religions, such as the importance of the family, respect toward older family members, and the special place afforded to mothers.

The illustrations in this unique book for children brings to life this important time of the yearly cycle for Muslims around the world.

Illustrated by Mohamed El Wakil
