Teachings of the Mosques
The book we are going to analyze is titled My Book of Islam children’s book series.
Where This Book is Used
My Book of Islam is an Islamic children’s book series. The first version of this series was released in 1988. This book series is taught in many Islamic schools in the West including the United States, Britain, Canada, and Australia.
Where You Can Find This Book
I created a PDF version of this book since I could not find an electronic version of it. So you can actually download it at: My Book of Islam – Book 5.
However, you can find this specific book on Amazon and buy it used.

Teachings of Jihad
Not at all shocking is the fact that this book for children encourages Jihad. Here, we learn about a Jihadi named Khalid – a bad Jihadi, so bad in fact that he NEVER died in battle. In fact, in this story, he is on his death bed, crying because he lived a long life. He fought and fought and never died in a battle. Awww, how sad:
Next, a few pages later, we learn about Al-Khansa. Al-Khansa is an Islamic convert, who, after converting to Islam, she encourages her sons to go “fight the enemy” and is hoping that they die. When they end up dying, she celebrates because she thinks dying for Islam is a great thing:
Non-Muslims are Lower than Animals
Jihad Until the Whole World is “Shouting by The Name of the Prophet”
