This story develops simply through dialogue between two children, Samira and Hassan, and their parents.It is
based on the actual day-to-day religious duties that occur during the holy month, highlighting the spirit
of the festival, and simultaneously providing the reasoning behind fasting, Eid prayers, and Zakat. The words and illustrations bring the spirit of this Islamic festival to life.
