From Rukhsana:

“Isaac Newton felt like he was just a boy playing with pebbles on a beach while the great ocean of knowledge lay before him. There is an incredible ocean of insight into human nature that is still waiting to be discovered. Each story we tell is a toe dipped in that ocean. So don’t be afraid to tell your story.

How Can Muslim Children See Themselves in Your Stories?

“Muslim children will laugh and they’ll cry, sometimes they’ll quiver at a ‘snake’ in the corner and sometimes they’ll feel stared at and blamed when something bad happens, but all in all Muslim children will feel seen!”
