Stories of Light - Prophet Musa (peace be upon him)
For more than 1400 years Muslims have been reciting the story of the life of Prophet Musa (peace upon him), which is contained throughout the entire Holy Qur’an, having only the vaguest idea of the physical reality in which it took place.
‘Tell the stories, that they may reflect’ (Quran 11:120)
“Sister Maryam Sinclair is a wonderful storyteller. All of our children from preschool through 12th were captivated by her telling of the story of Prophet Musa, peace upon him. She brings the story to life and adds many historical and scientific facts that further support the reality of the events. It was amazing to see how she could keep the attention of almost 200 students for more than one hour.
Every student I spoke toafter said it was great and they learned a lot. I highly recommend Sister Maryam Sinclair to all Islamic educators.” Faatima Yanes, Miftah Uloom Academy, Union City, New Jersey
“MashAllah you captivated students as young as 4 years old to young adults (including their parents) with your presentation, which brought Musa AS's story alive. It was so heart-warming when after nearly an hour or more of story-telling when you suggested we stop, the room resounded with a loud "NOOOO!!!" from nearly 120 students. This was clear evidence of how enthralled the children were!
I was on an emotional roller coaster myself as I listened on, heart pounding as the narrations would peak to a climax. I noticed the faces of some of the parents as their expressions changed with the mood of the story.” Malika Niazi, ISUW, Mt. Kisco, New York
