Just like "Just like the Prophet" series, this is another awesome project and endeavor made by those who really care for the Ummah and our future.
It is perfect for children with relatable and colourful illustrations.
In the dialogue where we are told to only use positive phrases and statements to our children, this book shows us how the Prophet (saws) himself used a lot of negating sentences and phrases addressed to his people/ummah.
Muslims are the middle people, the balanced people.
We are not people of extremes.
Allah made everything in pairs- the hot and cold, the light and dark and the yes and no.
If Allah the Almighty, the All-knowing and the All-wise has used the negating/nakira sentences in His commands to us in the Most Perfect Scripture, what about us with ourselves???
We are not people of extremes- all positive or all negative statements but a nice balance of both.
In reality, the need for negating statements are evident everywhere in our daily lives. As we follow the traffic laws and rules- no parking, no passing the red lights.
And so the rules of life, too, have the obligations and the prohibitions.
Do not imbalance your balance of life as in Surah Rahman.
And as ibn Al Qayyim says like the wings of birds- a nice balance of hope and fear is needed to attain success.
May Allah bless the team of DeenSquare who took this leap and effort to create such a beautiful legacy for our children and even for adults.
