Fatima Bint Muhammad (r.a)
Fatima was the youngest daughter of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, and his most beloved. He referred to her as being a part of himself. From a young age until his death she never left his side, learning everything she could from him, taking care of him and even protecting him from his enemies. This book summarizes her life for young readers. Many words can be used to describe Fatima; honorable, intelligent, beautiful, charitable, honest, loving, caring, yet none does justice to this unique character. She resembled her father in both looks and mannerisms and was said to be the person closest to him. Fatima dedicated her life to Islam and, together with her husband, Ali ibn Abi Talib, she was the perfect mother and teacher for her children who included Hasan and Husayn who continued the lineage of the blessed Prophet. Ranked alongside Khadija, Mary and Asiya as one of the four most important women in Islam, Fatima, who was promised a place in Paradise and who will be by her father's side on Judgment Day is an inspiration for all Muslims for all time. This book gives an insight into her life and character.
Hassan and Husayn (r.a)
This book is as much about Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessing be upon him, as it is about his grandsons, Hasan and Husayn, may Allah be pleased with them, for truly, they were inseparable. From the moment of their births, grandfather and grandsons delighted in each other's company on a daily basis; he finding rest and relaxation in their company, and they revelling in the unconditional love he lavished upon them. The reader will gain a delightful insight into his special family relationship of a grandfather who dotes on his grandsons, but never neglects to teach and educate them in good manners, right living and a sincere concern for the afterlife. Charming cameos of life in the noble Prophet's family, of the boys riding horseback on their grandfather, being carried by him, playing games together, having family arguments, all contribute to the sense that this is a very normal, human family. The story follows the two brothers into adulthood and pays tribute to the fine young men they become, thanks to the blessed Prophet's tutelage. Outstanding examples of what it means to be a true Muslim (Hasan, leader, preacher, peace-maker, supreme example of morality; Husayn, principled, courageous and self-sacrificing) both brothers die as martyrs for Islam, and find their rewards as Leaders of the Youth in Paradise-to the great delight of their grandfather!
Ali (r.a) Ibn Abi Talib
Ali ibn Abi Talib was the son of Abu Talib and the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. He lived with the blessed Prophet from a young age, cultivating an impeccable character and learning everything from the best of humankind. Ali was the first child to accept Islam, and the third Muslim after Khadija and Abu Bakr. This book presents his life for young readers.
