Jannah Jewels by Umm Nura is Salam Shop’s “PRODUCT OF THE WEEK”. It’s an amazing series about four young girls who travel back in time to gather different ancient artifacts. This series teaches children that it doesn’t matter what your gender is; if you put your mind to something, you can achieve it. The series revolves around the main characters Hidaya: the brave leader, Jaide: the spunky artist, Iman: the ‘mom’ of the group and Sara: the eco-friendly swimmer. All of the girls have their own unique ‘super power’. Whether it’s the ability to breathe underwater or the incredible talent of archery, each girl and her talent come together to defeat their nemesis, Jaffar, and save the day.
Each book focuses on a different time period in a different country and teaches about general history, as well as specific Islamic history. The girls go from China to Cordoba and meet influential Muslim leaders and inventors like Zheng He, Al Kindi and Abbas ibn Firnas.
These books are entertaining and educational, and are a great option for girls and boys between the ages of 7 and 11, who love action, adventure, and want to learn more about Islam.
Jannah Jewels are available at Salam Shop and online here.
