About the Book

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?

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 concept covered in this book is Halal money.

In the era that we are living, the concept of earning money by hook or crook is all too common, sadly even among Muslims. As Muslim parents, we all want our children to be conscious of earning and spending money only in ways that please Allah. But at times, we feel uncertain as to where and how to start the conversation. This book aims to break the ice on this important topic and become a conversation starter that will Insha’Allah make our children mindful of Allah and His pleasure when it comes to money.

The storyline is humourous and engaging so as to not become overly preachy for children. Concepts of safe adults and importance of education are also touched as plot points.

Feedback is welcome!
