During a homeschooling session about Qur’an tafsir, Dr. Sana Khan’s then 8-year-old son spoke the three words that are a bane of every parent’s existence—I am bored. Perhaps if on that afternoon he had spoken any other words, the stories you hold in your hands would not have come into existence. That very night, as a result of divine inspiration, the first of these stories was penned. Each story combines literary fiction elements that make reading so appealing to young minds—relatable characters, complex plots, real-world and age-appropriate challenges—and contextualizes them within the central message of each Surah in Juz ‘Amma. An immersive reading experience thus becomes infused with the best kind of knowledge—that of the book of Allah. A short quiz is provided after each story to assess the child’s understanding of the main concepts in the Surah, serving as an effective marker of progress.
