This is a beautifully written story introducing children to the Two Noble Scribes aka the Kiramin Katibin or the angels on your right and left shoulder who are responsible for writing down your deeds.
It is written in rhyming verse making it very appealing and exciting to younger and older readers. The book focusses on positive and negative behaviour (good and bad deeds) in a cheerful manner and also indicates the importance of saying sorry. It also emphasises on the glory of good deeds and how appreciative God is of our deeds no matter how big or small they may seem.
I would like to invite you to scroll down to see a sneak peak of the inside of the book, the pictures are colourful and bold with easy to follow text.
I love books that have a moral to the story, yet are fun and inviting to read. I often like to choose our stories in line with the occasion. This particular book we particularly enjoyed reading on the Eve of Shabe Baraat (an islamic auspicious night that emphasises the beauty and power of Gods compassion and forgiveness).
I laid out an activity at the end of our reading session for the kids as follows:
