When a child loses a parent, it leaves a large void that is filled with many questions. This book provides a gentle introduction to opening up the discussion about death and what it means from an Islamic perspective. Journal pages have been included at the end as a means to encourage children to express their own thoughts and feelings through writing or drawing.
