This insightful collection of stories and poems is a child-centered introduction to Islam. In one story, a boy feels guilty when he short-changes his prayer. In another story, a girl buys candy she canâ€™t eat because it contains pork by-products. And in yet another story, a non-Muslim boy thinks there is a ghost wandering around town because he keeps glimpsing a figure in flowing black robes. Each of the eight stories, often using humor, deals with a major aspect of Islam. Nonfiction sidebars explain the Arabic words and religious terminology.
