This edition has Q&A about Allāh’s Prophets. It is designed for ages 8 and over. It has the added advantage of a ‘cheat sheet’ so that those who don’t know the answers can take a peek. Then they only have to remember where they saw the answer that matches the upturned question card. So it’s good for your Deen and sharpens your memory too!
