Assaalmu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatu my dear parents, teachers and administrators.
Muslim School Books provides quality literature books for Islamic schools, teachers, parents, and homeschool families. Our books excite our children about being Muslim. They promote Islamic values and build Islamic character while fostering exceptional reading comprehension and literary skills. Our literary texts are high-interest, leveled, supplemental resources created to help our children want to be Muslim.
Welcome to the Amazing stories of Our Own Reading Series. Our youth’s definition of themselves must come from us, their elders who love them, care about them, and expect them to become our future leaders. It is our duty to impart upon our dear ones the true honorable and decent moral traditions and vibrant contributions that our Muslim brethren have granted to the world. We have a rich, religious culture of heroes who were masters of science, technology, social sciences and religion in the past. But this rich culture did not end in history. It has continued up until this very day.
The Our Own Reading Series conveys to our children the awesome stories of our own people from the past and during the present. It does so in an entertaining fashion with a literary style established for their reading level. We want our youth to be proud and grateful to be Muslims. Our Own Reading Series is a step in that direction, insha’Allah. We believe you and your young readers will take joy in reading the humble, yet bold voices of today’s Muslim heroes!
Why This Series and Why Now?
Today, our children are learning the value of Muslims and their own self-worth from outside sources. They are bombarded with images and messages that portray them and their brethren in a negative light.
Traditionally, it has been us--parents, family, schools, masajid--who have conveyed to our young ones the honorable and decent moral traditions of our noble and illustrious Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him.)
Likewise, it has also been us who have passed along the fabulous contributions our nation has given to the world. The Our Own Reading Series is a continuation of our long-time tradition of personally instilling the glory of our religion and people upon our youth.
The Our Own Reading Series was developed to provide educational literature in which we formulate and convey our own narrative about Islam to our children. Muslims are one of the most highly educated groups of people in the world. We can develop our own curriculum that matches or even surpasses existing ones.
Our Own Reading Series was written by Grandma Jeddah, an elementary/middleschool teacher who has taught at an Islamic School in Los Angeles, California for over 35 years. . Grandma Jeddah has educated hundreds of students in grades Kindergarten through 10th grade.
