CLOSED: Noor Kids Books Giveaway

The authors of Noor Kids books have a lot of experience working with Muslim parents and their children to try and determine their needs in a society where an Islamic education is not ready accessible or prevalent outside of the home. They find themselves responding to questions like, “How will my little Muslim child fit in?”, “How will she maintain confidence in her religious identity?”, “How can I make Islamic education relevant and exciting for my child?”

To answer these types of questions, Noor Kids is in the business of Crafting a Light (Noor) for Little Muslims!  They address the first problem, or question, “How will my Muslim child fit in?” through the Noor Kids Islamic Activity Books.

NoorKids-Aasiya1

Through their playful characters – Amin, Shireen, Asad, and Amira – their mission is to engage little Muslims with 1) Islamic education: to utilize reason in helping educate children on fundamentals of Islam; 2) Muslim culture: to ensure children understand the breadth of diversity within the Islamic faith; 3) American integration: To build confidence in our children’s religious identity.

The key characteristics that make their books so special:

Parent-Child Engagement: They create content, such as discussion questions and interactive activities, to spark in-depth conversation between parents and children about faith. (An example of this is the “In the Kitchen” series)
Critical Thinking: They stimulate children to use reason (i.e. their brain) to internalize Islam. Instead of focusing on the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of faith (i.e. “What is salaat and how should I perform it?”), we focus on the ‘why’ (i.e. “Why do I perform salaat?”). (An example of this are the discussion questions)
Quality Design: They partner with world-class designers to create products that are comparable with other children’s media (i.e. Disney, Nickelodeon) to make Islamic education fun and exciting.

Alhumdulillah, their seven books have entered over 25,000 homes internationally!

  10. I want to win thsee books as books play an important role in maintaining kids personality…and I prefer that Islamic books are the ones to help your child creating a strong bond with quran.,because if they will read stories related tor quran than they will automatically show interest in future towards quran reading. …My son really loves to read books…I bought him my first quran stories book and he really liked it and all the time read that book…May Allah make our kids pious and a good Muslim with health and Iman..Ameen

  11. I love the concepts involved in the making of Noor Kids books! I have been looking far and wide for suitable children’s books which not only exemplify our Islamic values, but also have Muslims as prominent characters, that my children can identify with. There is a sad shortage of these, but it looks like Noor Kids is working to change that, MashaAllah! My three and four year old children love animals and super heroes, and I’m sure these aspects of Noor Kids books will resonate well with them and make the series even more appealing. In addition to important content, the artwork is very well-done and attractive, providing a great method with which to communicate to children to whom it will appeal. I, and my children, can hardly wait to read these books!

  12. I can’t have kids of my own but I am a nanny for a lovely little girl that is just getting into reading. I would love for her to have a wide selection of books for her and her mother to read together and I’ve gotten rid of most of the books from my childhood. Reading is very important to me and I hope to have her grow up to love it!

  13. Asak..! Thanks for this.. These look so appealing for both my son and daughter who I plan to homeschool..

  15. This is such an important lesson for us parents to integrate our little ones with our faith at a young age and books like these really connect with kids by their fun, colorful illustrations that relate to kids and also pass on valuable stories and lessons. Any kid getting this would love them.

  20. Assalamu Alaikkum ,
    My boys love Noor kids books . As soon as they reach the book store in the masjid , they grab a Noor kids book which they haven’t read and beg me to buy it for them . When they are being good , I reward them with these books . They love all the characters and try to imitate their actions and statements . My proud moment was when my little one came & looked under my feet for heaven after reading about the Hadith from a Noor kids book . Ma Sha Allah ! Jazhakum Allahu Khayr for such a wonderful and educative collection of Islamic books for kids .

  21. Aslm

    I was actually thinking this morning that I would love to source some muslim inspired books tonread to my baby. She is only 8 months but I read to her as it develops their minds. InshaAllah i hopento win this prize and develop her brain islamically.

  22. Would love to give this to my nieces and nephews, and if it’s a success, i’d definitely buy more (maybe as Eid presents)

  23. Bismillah. As salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah. These books would be important for my family and our children in order to cultivate a good Islamic foundation in them from a very young age, in sha’ Allah. I hope be happy to gift them to my nephew. We all would like to keep exposing him to decent Islamic learning material, in sha’ Allah, so that we do not fall short in his tarbiyyah.

  24. love to have it for my grandkids. It is important to teach kids about their religion and have them understand it at the young age.

  25. I have a 3 month old son and I would love to teach him about his background, his religion and disney fairytale don’t do that. Instead of teaching him stories about disney prince and princesses, which teach children that girls are nothing until they meet mr. right, I rather teach him something that will benefit him in this world and the hereafter.

  26. My library should be ordering the series, and I would like to show them these books so they purchase them and help the Aaser brothers continue their efforts. Additionally, I’m approaching the stage of life when I will have grandchildren, and I see myself reading to them from books just like these.

  27. I try to stock up as much as I can on good quality Islamic books. They especially help in the early years when teaching and building cultural identity in children is so important! They also love to spot “themselves” out in the world and books is a great way to show them!

    By the way, are you in one of the books, @Yvonne — My Halal Kitchen? That is so cool! It looks just like you…bella!

  28. I’d love to win these for my sons, they love for me to read to them and it would be great to add these Islamic books to our reading time.
