Shade7’s Pop-Up Quranic Story telling book

by Khanum

A few days back, I got followed and mentioned at twitter by @shade7_out of the blue. It was via Productive Muslim that they came across me. I was pleased and humbled , said many thanks,  and moved on.

Few days went by and just like that I went back to see what shade 7 is actually about. What I saw was not only interesting but MIND BLOWING WORK. I wanted to read more about who actually is the mastermind behind this beauty but you know Khanum’s adventures here and there. I just got busy into another thing and had to leave it for some other time.

But, something unexpected happened . I came across one amazing young lady in the evening, who worked right under the nose of shade 7 and sent me their book’s press release.

I couldn’t believe. No. I couldn’t believe she was the one I had been talking to all this while.

Shade 7 was a girl. And it made perfect sense now, why my article about single muslimah’s was appreciated by the person behind that desk.

Hajera Memon, A young Muslim female entrepreneur, who quit a high flying legal career in the City for the world of Islamic children’s books,  in order to publish her first title just a year after putting pen to paper was the amazing girl talking to me from day 1.  She is 29, from Dollis Hill in London, began developing the book – a pop-up version of the famous Story of The Elephant – in her bedroom, in December 2012, after setting up her own publishing company, Shade 7. She is now working with designers, translators, business mentors and a specialist publisher as the final delivery date edges closer.

I immediately asked her to send me some of the material that I could use to blog about this excellent project.

I recommend you all check out this awesome project and pre-order it for your kids or any child you love, to gift it to. Here’s the link.  http://igg.me/at/popup-book 

Shade7  also ships internationally as well  and really want the ummah to get behind them and be part of what they pray will be a legacy of on-going beneficial knowledge and very much putting knowledge into action and spending  short time in this dunya doing the best to please Him and learn more.

Coming up next : I attended and also volunteered at a Fundraiser for Syrian civil war victims last week. It appears, It has extended it call for funds to a month. So I wanted to do a back to back posts for both these two Fundraising projects but I guess, I should give a day gap. Till then, visit Shade 7. :)

  1. Love how we’re having lots of Islamic books geared towards children! The illustrations on this book are beautiful and the colors so vibrant.

    • yes, the work truly is an inspiration and a very sweet way to teach your child quranic stories. I loved it too!:) Reminded me of Mezba,as well. May Allah bless these people Ameen.
