Our mission is to develop and deliver academic excellence through a curriculum that promotes Islamic values, culture, and life perspectives--in the hope of exciting our children about being Muslim!
Assaalmu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatu Homeschool Parents and Educators of Our Muslim Youth,
If you are looking for academic books that focus on reading passages which promote Islamic values and culture, then welcome to Muslim School Books. We provide reading textbooks for grades pre-k - 6th grade that foster a positive Islamic identity. In accordance with the hadith that forbids making images, we choose to use illustrations and pictures that avoid complete images of animals or people.
As educators, we know the significant impact that any educational system has on it's children. Educational systems enable children to develop a perspective about themselves, others and the world. Much of this information is conveyed through books. Books are one of the most dominant factors that influence our children's thinking. Therefore, we must develop our own academic books and curriculum that deliver to our children academic excellence, as well as the lofty morals and culture our religion upholds. As Muslim elders who are obligated to educate our children from an Islamic perspective, we must take advantage of resources developed to further this admirable goal.
Muslim School Books' reading selections cover a wide range of topics. This information is provided for your child with leveled reading material to facilitate learning. We include biographies of noble Muslims from the past and famous Muslims of the present. Our stories reveal interesting aspects of nature that provide proof of Allah's existence, such as the life of the honey bee. Other selections discuss critical Islamic topics that effect our youth today such as intoxicants and maintaining good health.
We want our children to be proud of their Muslim identity. We also want them to maintain their Islamic faith. Like myself, you may have come across reading selections in your young learners' books that you chose to skip over because the content was offensive to the Islamic moral way of life. This is why you will find Muslim School Books a valuable asset to your phonics and reading curriculum. Your child will read material that celebrates his or her Islamic way of life and avoids un-Islamic subject matter.
Each workbook in our series
1) Builds upon skills taught in previous levels
2) Leads to proficiency in reading, and
3) Integrates Islam into the lesson.
Welcome, to a refreshing concept in Islamic education--Muslim School Books!
Your students can learn to read while discovering the lives of Muslim trailblazers such as Maryam Laam (Hafiza), Mansa Musa (richest king in recorded history), Muhammad Ali (famous boxer and humanitarian), Imam Bukhari (famous hadith collector), and more . . .
Our phonics and reading textbooks also encourage your children to develop an appreciation and love for their religion by reading entertaining stories about Eid, Quran, Timbuktu, The House of Wisdom, companions of The Prophet (saw), and important practices in Islam.
We hope Muslim School Books will help raise generations of Muslim children who have a solid reading foundation and a love for their religion.
Muslim School Books was founded by Grandma Jeddah, an elementary and middle school teacher who has educated Muslim students at an Islamic School in Los Angeles, California for over 35 years.
