Read, listen, and sing along to the timeless poetry of togetherness and diversity in this new songbook by Dawud Wharnsby. Beautifully illustrated throughout by Shireen Adams, and with a free audio CD, children and adults will be inspired and absorbed for hours.

Smiles, warm and shining, like the sun upon our faces.Hope as rich and green as the trees of an oasis.The colours of Islam bloom in so many places,So many different colours of Islam.

Fill the world with colour, paint it everywhere you go.Paint everything you see, and tell everyone you know.Qur'an will be your paint, and your brush will be iman,So fill the world with colour, every colour of Islam.

Dawud Wharnsby was born in Canada in 1972. He has been writing stories, songs, and poems for people of all ages for many years. When he is not traveling to sing with audiences around the world, he loves being with his family—hiking in the mountains near his home, growing vegetables, and fixing things that get broken around the house.

About the Author:

Dawud Wharnsby was born in Canada in 1972. He has been writing stories, songs and poems for people of all ages for many years. When he is not traveling to sing with audiences around the world, he loves being with his family — hiking in the mountains near his home, growing vegetables and fixing things that get broken around the house. Dawud loves adventures and being outdoors so much that he is an official Ambassador for Scouting (UK), encouraging young people to take care of the earth and build strong communities. The Wharnsby family lives seasonally between their homes in Pakistan, Canada and the United States. Dawud lives in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.

Review:

"Wharnsby, a poet and musician, offers a collection of modern poems and songs for Muslim children everywhere. He combines religious thoughts with contemporary concerns and incorporates universal principles of truth, peace and faith... There is always something to explore, especially in the double-page spreads devoted to the title poem, “Colours of Islam,” and “Sing, Children of the World.”" ― Kirkus Reviews

"With each of his songs, Wharnsby sets out to illustrate the universal messages that make up the Islamic faith, such as diversity and love, and he imparts these messages with striking honesty... Shireen Adams’ vibrant illustrations beautifully echo the story of each song... Colours of Islam is yet another educational read by Wharnsby that is sure to educate all young readers on the principles of Islam. Recommended." ― Canadian Review of Materials

“Children and adults will be inspired and absorbed for hours.” ― Islamic Horizons

"The colorful artwork enhances the meaning of the songs. The diversity represented in the pictures (cultural, ethnic, etc.) is particularly appropriate. . . . This title fills a great need for children's books celebrating Islamic religious practice, and it does it nicely. . . . It will be most appreciated by Muslim library patrons." ― School Library Journal, February 2014
