Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds. Peace and blessings upon Sayyidina Muhammad, the last Prophet and leader of messengers, and upon his pure and good family and his loyal

and faithful companions, and upon those who follow them with excellence until the

Day of Judgment.

I had the pleasure of reading the educational series ‘Kalimah Tayibah’ prepared by some of our most beloved scholars in Lebanon. The book consisted of twenty lessons of Islamic education for the early grades, based on teaching the children of our Ummah the concepts of Islam, Iman and Ihsan, through positive, constructive dialogue and meaningful stories which are both easy to understand and enjoyable. I liked the text and production and the noble-minded intentions behind it. I pray to Allah to grant success to those responsible for the series and to make it of benefit to people. I pray that Allah facilitates the production of the other levels as part of this educational series for the children of our Ummah. We watch them carefully since they are the object of our hopes for the future of our Ummah to which Allah has promised His help and guidance, as stated in the Qur’an: ‘You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah,’ (Surat Al Imran, Verse 110). Indeed from Him we ask help and He will answer – He is the the Guardian of goodness, right guidance and success. Ôh our Lord, grant us goodness in this world and goodness in the hereafter, and save us from the suffering of hell, and grant peace and blessings upon Sayyidina Muhammad salla Allah alayhi wa sallam, and upon his family and companions, and all praise is to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
