Islamic fiction paperback novels that are fun yet meaningful

  • They are ticklish!
  • They are written in an easy to read style!
  • They are totally unputdownable!
  • They have very important underlying messages about Taqwa and Halal Money!
  • They ultimately aim to connect children to the Quran and help them apply its teachings in real life.

About The Trouble with School 

Nine-year-old Musa thinks money makes the world go round. He has a brilliant idea to earn some (totally Halal) money. But his friends at school think he has cracked the joke of the century! Can Musa (with or without his twin brother Zayd) convince them otherwise?

About The Trouble with Ice Cream

Nine-year-old twins Zayd & Musa are in a pickle. Every time their parents treat them to ice cream, they also break some bad news to them! Will Zayd & Musa ever be able to really enjoy ice cream? Or keep shaking in their shoes, bracing themselves for the next misfortune to come their way?

Zayd & Musa series aims to connect children to the Quran in a practical yet engaging way.

A note for parents from the author

I originally titled this series “Living the Quran with Zayd & Musa”. My aim was to weave a story – a humourous story that children could enjoy and relate to – around the concepts that our beautiful Deen teaches us in the Quran.

While the children enjoy the shenanigans of Zayd and Musa, they also learn some important concepts taught in the Quran.

The storyline is humourous and engaging so as to not become overly preachy for children.

Feedback is welcome!
