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.
Our very own author Suma Din has been teaming up with Dr Hany to promote Muslim role-models in schools since the release of her book ‘Dr Hany: A Servant to the World’s Poorest Peole’. These workshops focus on introducing the values, character and personality of such people as Dr Hany, who have made a massive contribution to their field, and trying to leave the students with the example of a role-model that they can look up to, and relate to.
Here are two pictures from a recent workshop at a Muslim faith school in Birmnigham:
The biography of Dr Hany, by Suma Din, is available from the Kube Publishing website for £5.99.
Suma Din, the author of our latest book, ‘Dr Hany El Banna: A Servant to the World’s Poorest People‘, has given us an exclusive post on her recent book launch at Living Islam 2011, and her experience working with the humanitarian role model, Dr Hany El Banna.
The release of a new book by Suma Din (author of Turning the Tide) is approaching and we have great pleasure in revealing its cover! The book, titled Dr Hany El Banna: A Servant to the World’s Poorest People, will be published by Kube in the next month and forms part of a new non-fiction series for teens: Muslims in the Modern World.
