“Dr. Umarji has combined his creativity, knowledge of the Islamic sciences, and academic acumen to produce a riveting read for young Muslims. This book will develop a love for the Quran, the Prophets, and ultimately Allah in the hearts of our children.”
- Shaykh Omar Husain, Religious Director, MCECC
“This is the first book I have ever come across which presents young Muslims with an adventurous, intellectual, and entertaining story based on the Quran. The author has skillfully preserved the core of the story while using artistic license to spice up the narrative. The need for such a work is long overdue. I anticipate this work to be a bestseller in the English-speaking Muslim community, since almost nothing like it exists.”
- Shaykh Mustafa Umar, President, Cal Islamic University
