We are proud and pleased to be able to share a review by RE Today of Suma Din’s book Dr Hany El Banna: A Servant to the World’s Poorest People. We knew it was a little gem of a book that set out to do something new and important but it is always nice to know other people agree with us, especially those we hope will use it most: teachers.
- This excellent well-written book gives a contemporary, positive example of Islam in action. [The book] can be read by students 12 upwards … in the RE, Geography or Citizenship curriculum.
- The book supports several areas of study at examination level such as conflict resolution, war, poverty and marriage but is also useful for younger students’ study of beliefs in action, justice and Islam in general.
- … an inspiring, interesting and engaging book which fills a gap, providing an example of a contemporary Muslim acting out his beliefs in the world today. It is excellent value for money and I expect to see this in school libraries and RE classrooms very soon.
