The first title in the Ramadan Classics series, The Story of the Holy Prophet Muhammad tells of the life of the Holy Founder of Islam in thirty concise chapters, to be read one a day during Ramadan. Study questions for each chapter help young readers confirm their understanding and reflect on the life lessons in every chapter.
In addition to timeless, fundamental stories from the life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, readers of all ages will learn about people and events they may not have known. Among them are the heart-warming stories of Haleemah and Barakah (aka Ummi Ayman), mother-figures in the life of an orphaned boy who would rise to become the Seal of the Prophets.

★★★★★ Originally upon purchasing this book I thought it would be like most other books based on Prophet Muhammad SAW. However, I have to say I was wrong, it is written very well, explains Prophet Muhammad SAW background and upbringing in such a manner that children even below 5 would be able to understand … Must buy for parents!
★★★★★ I started reading this book out loud to my 8 & 6 year old tonight. It’s so well written, the first question from my kids was: is this a true story? It’s written in a way that is easy for them to understand. … I noticed that this is the first book in a series called Ramadan classics – I’m looking forward to future books and hope there are new short stories to read every year.
★★★★★ I ordered this book for my 7 year old and it is fantastic! … What’s more, what I particularly love about this book is how it is broken down into very short chapters, making it easy to digest, yet there are so many chapters, that kids get to learn many beautiful things about the life of the Prophet after completing the whole book. Having questions for each chapter is an added bonus and fun for kids to do.
