A poem of hope dedicated to every Muslim child who has ever lost a parent, My Baba's House is a book to bring comfort to the children and adults of grieving families alike. Aimed at easing the struggle of loss, it takes readers on a gentle journey through Islamic teachings about the impermanence of death, the beauty of Heaven's eternity, and the hope of joyous reunions through lyrical descriptions, charming illustrations and simple, sincere reminders of the small acts of worship that strengthen the bonds of loved ones even through the temporary distance of death.
