I was absolutely love this beautiful poem! I read it over and over about a dozen times, and my little son enjoyed sitting with me as I read it aloud to him. I love the images and being a librarian I know exactly what it is like when you are browsing the shelves looking for that special book. And which book can be more special than Al Qur’an? So onto this lovely poem.
The Little Boy Who Loved the Quran
Copyright © Umm An-Num’an
Little footsteps were heard in the library in the middle of the night,
And all of the books were illuminated by warm candle light.
A little boy very quietly searched every single shelf,
He knew what the Book looked like and he could read it by himself.
He started with the letter A and made his way to Q,
He was scared he wouldn’t find it and he wouldn’t know what to do.
He went all the way to last shelf and the Book was nowhere to be seen,
So he started at the beginning, looking for the colour green.
He stood on his tippy toes and peered at the very top shelf,
And there he saw a single Book sitting by itself.
It was the book he was looking for, sitting Grand and Noble indeed,
The he did as Allah commanded; the little boy sat down to read.
