Book Details

In The Runaway Scarf, Ibsitu, a young slave from Habbasha who has built a friendship with her slave master’s daughter, Noora, is accused of stealing one of her expensive, jewel-embroidered scarves. After being attacked and violently searched, Ibsitu embarks on a journey of freedom. The light of faith has been lit in Ibsitu’s heart and she uses it as a guide along the path to Prophet Mohammed’s (pbuh) town in Madinah.

I just received, and read :), my copy of this wonderful book and I'm absolutely in love with it! This story is about a little girl's faith, determination and quest for freedom. Anyone who believes in God can relate to Ibsituu's faith that God (Allah) would see her through her hardships and deliver her to freedom, of body and mind. I particularly enjoyed the unique illustrations. I truly believe this book would make a wonderful addition to any family's home collection.
Masha Allah Sister Corey, you did an excellent job!!!
