About The Book
How do we describe God to our children? We tell our children that God is Merciful, Compassionate, and just. We tell our children that God is protecting and watching over them. We tell our children that one day we will have to stand before God and answer for what we have done or neglected to do.
Ultimately, what we are trying to do, not only for our children but also for ourselves, is to create a sound relationship with our Creator. To do this, we must first know who God is. To know God, one must learn His attributes. Our hope is that you can use this book to help teach your children the Attributes of God.
"Before we can know Allah (the Exalted) it is first necessary for us to recognize His existence, sovereignty, and unconditional compassion and love, and that He handsomely rewards all who diligently seek Him. This exciting and unique poetic story leads our precious children on a journey to knowing Allah using the deductive study method and the wonder of an adventurous boy with a wise owl. On this quest, youth may uncover who Allah (the Exalted) is by exploring some of His many names and attributes. May Allah (Exalted in His Majesty) grant my grand shaykh and master, Muhammad bin Ja 'far al-Kittani, the highest level of paradise for his illuminating works and contributions to the ummah, amin." - Muhammad bin Yahya al-Husayni al-Ninowy
