Muslim Stories for Children is a series of CDs offering the young something rare in the reading and listening material available to children nowadays. It aims to provide guidance to meaning in life, the development of a truly rounded personality and the sense of a life beyond this world. For a Muslim child, especially, these stories strengthen the faith, identity with Islam and an active commitment to it. The stories are written, narrated, and produced so as to appeal to a child's natural curiosity, to hold his or her attention, and to increase them in knowledge, insha'Allah (God willing).
