Inshallah you are all that is gentle and good. Inshallah you feel safe, like all children should. Like The Moon Loves the Sky is Hena Khan's daily wish for her children. With lyrical lines, each based on a verse of the Quran, and narrative illustrations that trace the life of a child growing up, this book speaks to a parent's unconditional love and concern for their child - as well as the joy of the parent-child bond.
