This was one of the first stories I narrated to my daughter when she turned 3. I kept the story simple and to the point. My focus is on Allahs love and mercy therefore I refrained from mentioning death. After hearing this story a number of times, soon she memorized the names of all the important personalities in the life of our beloved Prophet Sallallahu alayhe wasallam and also the first few verses of Surah Alaq.
I wrote down what I narrate to her and this is for the parents to read and narrate in their own words. Add lots of emotions and voice variations to make the story interesting and capture the imagination of the young child. Make sure to recite the Quranic Ayahs with proper tajweed and soon your little one will memorize it too.
May Allah accept this small endeavour from me and make it beneficial to all Muslim parents out there.
Just for inspiration and some laughs (you will know why when you listen) I am sharing this voice clip of me narrating this story when Aaminah was 3 years old.
