Description from the publisher:
The Perfecting the Pillars 8 book series teaches students about the first two pillars of Islam: the shahaadah (witnessing to the oneness of Allah) and salaah. The other three pillars of Islam will be covered in the remaining 6 books of the series which are currently under development.
The lessons in this series are based on short stories that make learning the facts of the topic more enjoyable. The stories feature young children that the student can identify with and take place in different countries (i.e. America, Saudi Arabia, Egypt) to give students a world view of Islaam. The stories also feature different economic and social environments to allow students to see different family structures and situations (i.e. nuclear family, orphans, needy people, widows, and interracial families).
Each book features:
Qur’aan and hadith references
Review section at the end of each lesson
Illustrations (no animals or human beings)
Glossary of Arabic terms
