The book ‘More Than 100 Things Prohibited by the Prophet (peace be upon him)’ by Khateeb Abu Onais is the debut publication of Deen Square. It consists of 130 teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) that mention acts to refrain from in our daily lives. They are categorized under 26 titles, and each prohibition mentions the concerning hadith reference which can be verified easily from sources like Sunnah.com. The titles are:
- Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
- The Qur’an
- Wudu (Ablution)
- Jumu’ah (Friday)
- Eating & Drinking
- Emotional Harm
- Verbal Harm
- Physical Harm
- Sports & Activity
Teaching children from a young age makes it easy to inculcate good habits early-on in them which is beneficial all through life. Like me, other adults reading this book too will find prohibitions they never knew about! Hence, this is a very beneficial book for everyone.
Each prohibition is also illustrated. The illustrations of people and animals depicted in the book are without facial features, and the female characters are shown in hijab. The language employed is very simple and easy to understand. The book contains teaching tips and instructions for the parents as well to utilize the book the best way. The end of the book has interesting activities like quiz, memory test, word search, maze, etc. This book will make a nice gift for children; something that will benefit them throughout their life, in sha Allah.
One thing I would like to get replaced in the next edition of book is the word ‘hadiths’ with the correct word plural word ‘Ahadith’.
