By Fatma Barkatulla, Learning Roots, Hardcover, 192 pages
You have another mother. You’ve never seen her. You’ve never heard her voice. You’ve never perhaps even thought of her as your mother. But she is your mother nonetheless. And if you get to Jannah, your mother will there, waiting to meet you. Her name is Khadijah (RA). She was the first wife of the Prophet Muhammad SAW, the first to believe in his message and the first mother of the greatest nation, history has ever seen.
As you work towards reaching Jannah, and meeting your mother Khadijah, it will certainly help if you did a little preparation beforehand and got to know about her story. This book has been specially crafted to help you do that.
You see, most of the stories you’ve heard about Khadijah have probably been raw translations from classical sources. While they sound captivating in the original Arabic language, there’s quite a lot that’s lost when they are translated into English.
So rather than sticking with a dry narrative, we decided to get to the core of the stories and tell them in a fluid style that the modern reader is accustomed to today. Here's how we did it:
So get to know your mother, give this book a read, inspire yourself for that meeting in Jannah in-sha-Allah! This book has been our fastest selling book upon launch and is an ideal read for teens and adults as well as late Primary aged children.
