About the Book: “Assalamu alaykum (Peace be upon you) or Hi! My name is Maryam, and as you have probably guessed, I am seven years old. Seven is a special age for Muslims; children start learning to pray regularly at this age, so that includes me, too! There are a lot of things to figure out when learning to pray, like where is the right place to pray? Do you have what it takes to put your foot in a sink without falling flat on your back? Now that’s a tricky one! Also what should you pray for, and how do you do it correctly? And why should you pray five times a day? This one takes some figuring out, but it feels great when you know the answer! Read on to discover just how special seven really is!” Maryam discovers many special things about being a seven-year-old Muslim girl.
