This rhyming book outlines several nighttime Islamic practices for kids – and even adults – to implement before going to bed. Fostering a love for the Prophet’s Sunnah, as well as teaching children to practice good deeds consistently. Also includes references to associated hadiths, an explanation of Islamic terminology, and additional advanced practices.
“It’s time to go night night.
We brush our teeth,
we make wudu,
pj’s on, you know what to do.”
– Bedtime Sunnahs, Alia G. Dada
Bedtime Sunnahs is a cute colourful book by Alia G. Dada who takes the reader through the sunnahs of the bedtime routine of a Muslim. The children begin by brushing their teeth, performing wudu, wearing their PJs, reading a book, and then start their bedtime sunnah. The book ends with a note for the parents, an appendix with Islamic terminology, ahadeeth, and reference for additional sunnahs for older children.
I love the illustrator, Robin Boyer’s work. The publishing team has given a lot of thought into the background of the children’s bedrooms, most especially the decors. Though the blurb says it is a rhyming book, I didn’t find it following a consistent rhyming pattern.
Overall, Bedtime Sunnahs is a fun informational book for kids aged 3 to 7.
