The rhyming book ‘Before Birth, Beyond Life’, by Zenubia Arsalan, talks about the circle of life, from an Islamic Perspective. In simple language the author mentions about the perfect design, and love with which Allah Creates everyone, the role of angels when the baby is in the womb, love of a mother for her child, making dua, Qadr, and fate of our deeds on the Day of Judgment.
Death is a reality that is generally not understood by children, and is painful to deal with for adults too. But speaking about death, the author beautifully reminds us that it is not the end and that there is life after death in which we will reunite with our loved ones in Jannah.
The different concepts mentioned in the book are a good way to introduce important beliefs in children that are the core of our Islamic faith. It will encourage conversation between parents and children and educate them about information pertaining to creation of human beings, life, in this world, and after death.
The illustrations in the book are beautiful, and include images of few landmark buildings of Dubai which people living in UAE will recognize. There is a QR code at the end of the book for guidelines on how to talk to children about the different beliefs and concepts mentioned in the book.
