About the Author

Aarifa Razaali

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Aarifa Razaali was inspired to compile the book Dear Child due to her own experience while growing up.  As a child, she had a book of prayers that explained clearly the reason and benefits of reciting each prayer.  This inspired her to want to pray as she understood the speciality of each prayer, which gave answers and satisfaction to the desires in her heart.  

Although all prayers are powerful and the Quran is a miracle in itself, we can conclude that there are certain prayers more suited for certain reasons, just as there are sacred times and sacred places when and where prayers are more beneficial.

The purpose of compiling this book was to facilitate and encourage a parent’s desire to pray for their children as within Dear Child, they will find a great number of prayers with varying topics all in the same book.

 
 

Testimonials

 
 

Dear Child is a comprehensive collection of all the supplications a mother will need in her parenting journey. These supplications - both from the Quran and the Ahlul Bayt - cover any and all times a mother seeks to turn to Allah for divine guidance, from when wanting to conceive a child to labour and beyond. No doubt, access to all of these beautiful supplications is a blessing. Having it all in  one place makes it easier for a mother to know what to recite, thus helping her inshallah to bring up her child in the most successful manner.

Shaheen Merali

 
 

“The second edition of Dear Child is a welcomed addition to the genre of books dealing with pregnancy, parenting and much more. It blends the valuable teachings found in multiple previously published books on topics starting from stages before conception and works through to child birth and ends with prayers and supplications to keep our children on the straight path. Containing guidance given in the Quran and the traditions of Prophet Muhammad and the Ahl al-Bayt, peace be upon all of them, the second edition of Dear Child is a one-stop resource for the mother and father to be, helping them navigate the various stages of their life from childbirth and beyond…”
