Hajj is fast approaching and once again we need to to explain to the Little Muslims what it’s all about.
There are a few good books out there that will help, and of course there’s YouTube videos of Makkah and Madina, as well as some lovely nasheeds.
Here are some books in our collection, and I hope to add more soon in sha Allah. If you know of any great Hajj books, please do let me know 🙂 – Razeena
