Pages: 24 (boardbook)
My Prophet Muhammad (S) encapsulates the timeless story of the life of the best and final Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (S). Designed for early childhood, this rendering of the Seerah serves as an ideal first acquaintance with the miraculous story of Allah’s finest creation. With its vivid illustrations and appropriately rendered authorship, this book is designed to increase your child’s knowledge, appreciation and love for the Prophet Muhammad (S).
My Prophet Muhammad (S) is a picture board book, containing 24 pages, a soft sponge cover with special glitter, varnish and metallic shine effects.
First of all it’s a BOARD BOOK!!!! Just this fact makes the book more awesome!
This has got to be the best Seerah book for toddlers/younger children. The words are simple, 5 – 10 sentences per page.

The illustrations are beautiful!! They don’t have any people, but there are faceless camels and horses.
The quality is really good and durable. The glitter on the cover will scrape off if not handled with care. (You could cover it with a transparent cover.)
It’s quite pricey! And I wish it was less expensive.
Would I recommend it??? Definitely!
Age group: Newborns (3-6 yrs old to understand it)
Since it’s a board book I would recommend this for all the new moms out there. They can read it to their newborns as early as possible. However I think to really understand the book, the child needs to be atleast 3 yrs old.
I got this for my kid when he was 15 month old. Even at 19 months, he doesn’t really understand the story but knows what the Kaba looks like. He also learnt the words camel, tent, moon, mountains from this book. This book can also teach toddlers the words Makkah, sand dunes, date trees which are not common in other books.
