The Illustrated Quran
I really liked the idea behind this illustrated Quran but the delivery just wasn’t there for me.⠀ ⠀ It confused me — if it is meant for young children, than why is it so long? And illustrations don’t really matter to teens and adults..so I didn’t understand the purpose of that, especially since they were very average pictures.⠀ ⠀ The book looked dated, the quality of the pages is thin, and even the font seemed difficult to read. ⠀ ⠀ What I did like was the simplified English word translation of the meaning, and I liked the lessons and suggested prompts for learning in the surahs. They really help teach a person to reflect on the meaning of the Quran.⠀
There were also added notes and info that is useful for understanding the Quran’s tafseer and language. This was a nice touch and is good for education. ⠀ I would have liked to also see transliteration in this book for those that need extra help in teaching their kids these surahs. Then, I would have found it to have a huge use in Muslim households (for hifz).⠀ ⠀ ✨✨I am wary of translations when they aren’t well-known and certified...it makes me fear that it might have mistakes though I didn’t particularly notice any myself.⠀ ⠀ I would recommend the age range for this book be more 10-12, as they would be able to fill the prompts and understand the words. ⠀ Check it out with the following link for more:
