Title: Seven is Special

Author: Shagufta Malik

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (an especial favourite, because even though I am a teenager, I still enjoy to read books aimed for a younger age level once in a while)

Synopsis: Assalamu alaykum (Peace be upon you) or Hi!

My name is Maryam, and as you have probably guessed, I am seven years old. Seven is a special age for Muslims; children start learning to pray regularly at this age, so that includes me, too! There are a lot of things to figure out when learning to pray, like where is the right place to pray? Do you have what it takes to put your foot in a sink without falling flat on your back? Now that’s a tricky one! Also what should you pray for, and how do you do it correctly? And why should you pray five times a day? This one takes some figuring out, but it feels great when you know the answer! Read on to discover just how special seven really is!


This is a fantastic book for young Muslim children! I for one, found it really relatable (although I’m a teenager I’ve read it a few times – which says a lot!) to when I was a seven year old, and wish it was around when I was at that age, but am so glad it is now 🙂

It has really great illustrations that make it a fun read, and I know many kids around 7-9 years old who have read it in one sitting absolutely loved it. As you can probably tell from the synopsis, it’s about a young Muslim girl learning to pray, which is a significant part of Islam.

Highly recommend this book to all families with Muslim children – or anyone else who is interested in reading, and I look forward to reading more books from this author in the future ❤️

Thanks for reading!
