Nadia Hears the Shahada (Hardcover)
Nadia is a toddler and says things as purely and honestly as she sees them. Through the innocent eyes of Nadia, in this book we learn about Islam and the Shahadah, the testimony of faith. When she visits the mosque with her sister and mother she sees a new Muslim announcing his embrace of Islam. As the community welcomes their new friend, little Nadia discovers the joy of faith. As Nadia grows, we will continue to follow her through her discoveries of the remaining pillars of Islam, including Salaat, Zakat, Hajj, and Ramadan.
