Noor Kids – Review

We received a box of Noor Kids Comic Books and we love it. Alhamdulillah. From the packaging to the content for both parents and children, its nothing short of wonderful! Check out the cute little box it came in below, bottom right.

I am really impressed by their structure.

  • A series of books that revolve around 4 main characters that are totally cute and muslim! Already sounds like your very own kids, right?! 😉 ma sha Allah.
  • Each book starts with a letter to the parents explaining with detail the focus behind the moral of the stories. I love this part because it totally preps you for questions your child(ren) may have. It revolves around good character and islamic knowledge…win win!
  • It has 2 stories related to the title and in between them is an activity section which vary from book to book! Some examples include drawing your house in Jannah in sha Allah, coloring in a prayer mat and even uploading your very own talent of choice to the Noor Kids website.
  • You know how sometimes you read a book to you kid and you wonder, hmmm were you paying attention? Well, Noor Kids got you covered. Each mini story has a couple questions at the end to recap the story and get your child(ren) exercising their thinking skills! In sha Allah. Honestly, the content is so vivid my daughter actually enjoyed this part. If there was a question she didn’t know the answer to, it was because the topic was new to her. This is a great convo starter and learning opportunity for both parents and the kids. Teach them something new and learn something new about them. In sha Allah.
  • And the Noor Kids Passport! My daughter was especially excited about this. Well done with this reward system! Each book comes with a badge that reflects the topic of the book. She just couldn’t wait to add the sticker badge to her passport! Talk about incentive to get through the book first. In sha Allah. She was so ready to just peel it off and place it in her book. Alhamdulillah for the little things that make them happy 😊

I am very happy to be a part of the Noor Kids Family and I think you would be too!

Miraj Stories App-Review

Whether you have an iphone or an android, sisters, this app is one I believe you will truly enjoy for your kids! When we received a membership to this app to review, I was very excited. Currently with 27 audio books, 6 picture books, 5 video stories and 11 interactive books (all Islamic) this is screen time you probably won’t feel guilty over letting your kids have! Mamas you know what I mean!

What I love about this app is that there are so many ways it can be used. You can stream stories in the car while driving, use them as bedtime stories or even while cooking dinner to keep your kids entertained…and the best part is that the stories aim to build your child(ren)’s faith as a teeny tiny muslim. Alhamdulillah! Stories about Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Stories inspired by Quran and hadith. Stories about history and heroes. Stories about animals. There’s such a wide range of topics! It is almost sure to captivate your child’s interest! Just take a look at how they further simplify your options in the screen shot below. Its so easy to navigate.

Miraj Stories are known for their just that, audio books on their website…but now they elevated their story telling through this app. And in more ways than one by including picture books, video stories and interactive ones!

I like the picture books because they encourage word recognition along with visual stimuli in a split screen style just like an actual book. For kids who already know how to read, there is an option to mute the audio. Check out an excerpt from “A Story of Creation”.

The video stories play just as a cartoon would. Fact (at least in my house): When it comes to cartoons, kids get so excited. Soooooo, let’s just swap out a lil’ netflix cartoon for a miraj audio cartoon and everyone’s happy! In sha Allah. My daughter especially loves these! Screen shot below is from “The Selfish Monkey” who learns how to share after seeing Prophet Muhammad, peace by upon him (not pictured or portrayed by any character) show his generosity.

Let me just say the interactive books are very cool. Learning the arabic alphabet, salah, wudu are just some of the topics covered here. They are like very simple video games where your child must problem solve through the characters provided or just complete the task mentioned (depending on the topic). You can see some examples in the screen shots below.

What an amazing way to utilize today’s technology. Having this one app, your child can obtain some Islamic knowledge through stories, videos and games that are entertaining, fun and age appropriate. In sha Allah. Please go to your app store and check it out.

You can subscribe 1 of 2 ways shown below.

They even have a section for latest releases! So be on the look out for new stories, games, etc. Miraj is keepin’ us on our toes! You never know when something new will pop up! In sha Allah.

And kuddos for this! Saving my battery life?! Keepin’ it real! Miraj you truly care!! 😆
