Ramadan
Suhaib Hamid Ghazi
082341275X
September 1996
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3?An attractive companion to Mary Matthews's Magid Fasts for Ramadan (Clarion, 1996), set in America rather than Egypt. Hakeem and his family are the focus of Ghazi's description of the holiday?its origin, elements of celebration, and purpose. Though Hakeem plays a prominent role throughout, plot emphasis rests on ritual and events rather than on character development. The boy functions as an "everychild" whose matter-of-fact and heartfelt religious observations help to demystify a part of Islam for non-Muslim children as well as affirm an important part of the Islamic calendar for those who are believers. Ghazi's writing is clear and descriptive with Arabic terms sans pronunciation but described both within context as well as in an appended glossary. The picture-book format creates a warm...


Western Muslims and the Future of Islam
Tariq Ramadan
0195183568
Jan 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Ramadan, named by Time magazine in 2000 as one of the 100 most important innovators of the coming century, argues that Islam can and should feel at home in the West. He takes stock of Islamic law and tradition to analyze whether Islam is in conflict with Western ideals; Ramadan is emphatic that there is no contradiction. He then spells out several key areas where Islam's universal principles can be "engaged" in the West, including education, interreligious dialogue, economic resistance and spirituality. Ramadan raises interesting issues about Islam's inherent critique of consumerism and its demanding spirituality, which "touches all the dimensions of life."

A Military History of Modern Egypt
Andrew McGregor

May 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Egypt has one of the oldest civilizations and proudest national histories in the world, but most military histories treat it as a mere battleground for other great imperial powers such as the Ottoman Empire, the French, and the British. In a lively and stirring narrative, this work tells the untold story of the Egyptian experience. It looks at the lives of Egyptian soldiers fighting at home and abroad, and shows the roles those soldiers and their leaders have played in Middle-Eastern and world history for 500 years--especially in the convulsions that have transformed the Muslim world during the past two centuries.

From Publishers Weekly
At a time when many Americans are becoming more aware of the Islamic faith, this book, which explores the Muslim tradition of fasting during the month of Ramadan, is most welcome. Magid, who is too young to fast, watches the other members of his family fasting and wishes to be a truly obedient Muslim too. Unbeknownst to his family, Magid promises Allah that he, too, will fast. His family discovers his fast, and while Magid is chastised for being dishonest, his religious desires are honored, as he is given a modified fast to follow. Excellent watercolor illustrations add to the charm of this book. An informative afterward about the Islamic faith, a glossary and a pronunciation guide make it a good tool for teaching children about Islam and the awakening of religious desires. Ages 5-10.

Ramadan: A Muslim Time of Fasting, Prayer, and Celebration
Carol Gnojewski
0766022757
October 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 2-5 - This introduction to the Muslim holy month also reviews the life of the prophet Muhammad and discusses basic religious beliefs, such as prayer. Unfamiliar terms are defined, with pronunciations, in the text (the glossary includes few of these and is not comprehensive). The many photographs are both colorful and multicultural, and the presentation is appealing. Unfortunately, the description of calendars is confusing, and Gnojewski fails to indicate who (besides children) is exempt from fasting. For readers on the younger end, Suhaib Hamid Ghazi's beautifully illustrated Ramadan (Holiday House, 1996) and Susan Douglass's easy-reader Ramadan (Carolrhoda, 2003) are both useful. Diane Hoyt-Goldsmith's Celebrating Ramadan (Holiday House, 2001), focusing on a Muslim family in New Jersey, is an...

From Booklist
K-Gr. 2. For emerging and younger readers, this title in the First Facts: Holidays and Culture series provides a simply written, general introduction to the monthlong Islamic celebration. Each double-page spread tackles one topic: "What Is Ramadan?" "Celebrating Ramadan," "The Fast," etc. The typeface is large, the text is conversational in tone, and color photos show family, faith-related, and social activities, such as breaking the fast and charitable giving. Small facts boxes expand on the main text. The book doesn't explain how the holiday began, and more information on Muhammad (he is never specifically identified as a prophet) would have been welcome. A craft activity, a skimpy glossary ( Islam is defined as "based on the teachings of Muhammad"), two further readings, and a reference to the "Facthound" Web...
