Seerah Series for Kids
I started writing Seerah cover story for Radiance Magazine, one of the best magazines for the youth in Pakistan. Whenever I thought about writing on an event from the life of Prophet Muhammad, I tried to relate it to the real life. This relation led to the formation of stories.
The great team at Radiance decided that it was the time that our kids see the link of their life events to the Seerah, so we decided to make it in the form of a book.
This is one of the greatest pleasure of my life. When the editor communicated her interest in the book, I set off to write the book. I felt euphoria and fear at the same time. I tried to follow what I wrote as words made an impact when they are practiced yet I slipped time after time. However, the way of repentance made me spirited and optimistic.
All gratitude to Allah that he made me complete the rough draft. Now the excellent team at Radiance is thrilled to edit it and then bring it in print form.
‘Sneak A Peek’:
Chapter: Birth of Rasulullah
I asked her, “How could you be so selfish? You are welcoming the new baby. What good will the newcomer bring to you? What can ever make you smile after this? What future you promise the newcomer?” I shouted losing the trail and effect of my words.
It ended with sobs. My mother embraced me and hugged me tightly. She said, “Let me tell you about the birth of the Prophet of the universe; for whom Allah created the world.” I listened, and she talked softly like always:
Prophet’s signs become evident in the world:
Basil saw me with grief, and then I went to my bed praying for my parents to know the reality of Madrasah.
Being a social being, this seclusion from the outside world made me feel heavy-hearted, and pessimism hovered over me. After three days, Basil left a letter for me. It said
I know this exile may be sapping you and draining your energies, but I advised you to be patient. I want to give you the example of a boycott from Kuffars when Prophet Muhammad called them towards Islam:
He said between the sobs, “No Bhaiyya it’s the pain in my heart.”
I wiped his tears and asked him to tell me what happened. He said, “Bhaiyya, you know the incident we read last night; in which people defamed the friends of Allah and called them names and beat them with their shoes?” I sighed, “Yes it was painful but why are you injured and crying?”
He replied, “It’s Zeeshan, Akram and Muammar, they laughed at the friends of Allah. They said they deserved this treatment and said outrageous things about them. I couldn’t tolerate. They are shameless and speak so bad about others. I asked them to stop, and they made fun of me and you all. I couldn’t tolerate, and I picked the fight, but they are truly very rebellious as they beat me violently.”
I sighed thinking of the fire and hatred people spread in the name of religion and sighed on the set up of the institutions in the country that led few people to bully others.
