“Yes, I love it! I can’t wait till its sequel is republished.”

Muslims have always engaged in artistic storytelling because we understand that storytelling is a vehicle to inspire faith and love for Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala and Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his family. It’s always been a method of tarbiyah (education and upbringing) through the relating of stories of the Prophets, peace be upon all of them, historical stories of specific and general situations and stories that provide a moral message.

Doesn’t it seem that the zionist regime of Israel is always in the news, either crying or murdering? The past little while they’ve been at it again – bawling about the “terrorists” with stones on their border and shooting them down in cold blood. It’s not the Palestinians who’re the “terrorists.” It’s the zionist criminals and all those who support them, including the US, Britain and Canada.

On December 1, 1963, Al-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz (Malcolm X), speaking about the assassination of US president John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, in response to a question, said “the chickens came home to roost” at a Nation of Islam address at the Manhattan Center in New York. For that, Al-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz was silenced by Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad for 90 days. Al-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz later said, “His assassination was the result of the climate of hate.” In March 1964, Al-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz left the Nation of Islam.

|Many people dream of walking in the footsteps of their idols.|
They stalk their idols’ social media, write fan letters to them, purchase books by them and books and magazines about them, relisten to their words, post pictures of and sayings by them, hang posters of them in their home and show up where they perform, might be or even live. If their idol has passed away, they retrace their footsteps by visiting their birthplace, where they made it big and their gravesite.

In the Name of Allah, The Compassionate, The Merciful
As-Salaamu Alaikum Everyone,
Inshallah, you and your family are well.
By now, we’re sure you’ve seen our new publishing company and are as excited about it as we are.
Since we’ve branched out into an entirely new field, the world of Islamic fiction for and by young and new adults, it seems it may just be too unique. Some folks can’t get their heads around Islamic fiction. That’s okay, though, because without venturing out into the unknown, we won’t swim with the always relevant and ever-evolving Islamic wave and instead we’ll be stuck in some ole fuddy-duddy time warp.
