A Ramadan Story about Giving
By the author of Secrets of Divine Love, A. Helwa
The leaves whisper it. The birds sing it. It is Ramadan, the holy season of giving! But Adam and Alyah can’t help wondering: what is the real meaning of Ramadan? Fortunately, wise Grandma Essi knows just what to do. With ruby pomegranates picked from Grandma Essi’s magnificent tree, the two grandchildren set off to visit their friends and neighbours, share their blessings, and discover, as Grandma Essi no doubt intended all along, to feel the spirit of the holiest month of the year. Written by A. Helwa, and illustrated by Dasril Iqbal Al Faruqi, The Blessed Pomegranates is a timeless story to teach kids gratitude, generosity, and the real meaning behind Ramadan.
