I have said before that growing up there were not many (if at all any) children’s Islamic books. Now our children are getting a range of books to help with their Islamic studies. With hajj coming up I thought we would share some of the books we have relating to the hajj.
Tell me About Hajj: A Simple Family Guide
This book explains the importance of the annual pilgrimage – one of the pillars of Islam – with a special focus on the Prophet Muhammad’s Hajj. These exciting historical events are presented in a simple informative style, with beautiful illustrations, so that young people may understand and enjoy them.
This is a factual book about the hajj and a good resource to help teach your children about the hajj. Full of important information and facts it is one of the beneficial books about hajj that we own.
My Hajj Fun Book
Islamic Fun books are designed to help children learn more about Islam in a creative and interesting manner. The books contain imaginative and interesting activities and illustrations to attract the attention of young children.
If your children learn better through doing activities then you may want to consider the fun book. Recommended for ages 7-10 it contains word searches, crosswords and puzzles.
Going to Mecca
Come with one Muslim family as they travel from the West to Mecca to perform the sacred pilgrimage, the Hajj.
A short story about going on Hajj focusing on the important aspects in a lyrical format. A lovely story to read with your children, and perfect for bed time aswell.
Once upon a time there lived a farmer called Yan. He dreamed of visiting the Kaaba to perform Hajj. For he loved Allah more than anything else. One day when his money bag was full, he set off on a journey that would last a lifetime.
Recommended for ages 5+ this is also a lovely short story about the hajj. Showing not just the importance of hajj, but the importance of helping others too.
Young Explorers Adventures in Makkah
Zaynah, Maryam and Ali are three young explorers. Together with their guide, Uncle Hamza, they explore Makkah, Islam’s holiest city. They take young readers on an exciting journey, revealing lands and places that were an essential part of the development and history of Islam.
A very detailed book for the older children as it is very text heavy. More for the children who do like to read and gain a lot of information.
A Little Tree Goes for Hajj
The little tree has always wanted to travel, especially to Mecca, to perform Hajj….But how can he travel when his roots are in the ground? Find out how his dream comes true, and he makes the journey of a lifetime.
A cute story about a little tree for the little ones. A story to read together with your children to learn if the tree manages to go to Hajj.
I haven’t gone into too much detail with each book as I recently made an IGTV video showing the books in a bit more detail. Have a watch if you would like to learn more about each individual book.
The books can be purchased from Amazon UK. Please note these are affiliate links:
