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).

Born into a Zoroastrian family who lived near Isphahan in Iran, Salman left home at a very early age; his journey took him to Syria, Mosul, and al-Qura, where he spent some time with Christians and caravan traders and to his final destination, Medina, where he met the blessed Prophet (pbuh) through whom he became a Muslim, a believer in One God.
The Longing Heart - The Story of Abu Dhar -- tells how he travelled to Makkah and roamed the streets in search of the Prophet (pbuh) and the simplicity of his message.
