How We Began

The story of Precious Bees began shortly after the birth of my first son in March 2016. I loved bonding with him while singing and reading books to him (and I sensed he loved it too!).

However, I faced a problem. There were countless nursery rhymes and books, but none or very few about Islam.

One day, during a nappy changing singing session, ‘row, row, row your boat’ turned into ‘pray, pray, pray, salah’! And that was the start of our debut book FIVE PILLARS: Just To Please Allah! As my son grew, the wording changed until I had finalised Five Pillars and it’s sister book, Good Deeds (Alhamdulillah)!

The name ‘Precious Bees’ was inspired by a thought-provoking khutbah given by Ustad Nouman Ali Khan: ‘Be Like The Bee!’ My notes on that are here.

Many more book ideas developed and are waiting to be brought to life with illustrations!

Why Do This?

I believe that resources which encourage LOVE for ALLAH & ENTHUSIASM for Islam are vital for Mini Muslims because:

The earlier we sow the beauty of Islam, the greater our children will blossom (in shaa Allah).
