National Family Literacy Day and Month takes places every November. A few years ago, I decided to create a reading challenge especially for Muslim families. Non-Muslim families can participate as well changing the themes to go along with their religious belief or they can follow along and their about Islam too.
The idea is to have someone in your family read a book that relates to the day’s theme every day throughout the month of November. It should take no more than 20 minutes, it is a moment to connect with each other and our deen Islam. It is an opportunity to learn about our deen and ask questions or start a discussion as well. Also, to spread awareness of all the great Muslim books that are available today.
You can download the challenge here by subscribing to our newsletter and freebies page, then hang it on your fridge.
You can share your books daily as well on Instagram or Facebook #booksforamuslimfamily or tag us @the_multilingual_home.
Here are some book suggestions related to the theme for each day :
