TMV has had an exclusive first look at the cover of the soon to be published book “Amazing Muslims Who Changed the World”, by author Burhana Islam. A richly illustrated and stunning collection of the true stories behind both modern and historical Muslim heroes, this book is one of the first of its kind in celebrating the achievements of Muslims around the world.

While the book is aimed for children aged 9 to 12, this book can be enjoyed by all – with a collection of 30 stories around the lives of famous and little-known Muslims who changed the world, this book is an absolute must-read.

Some of the figures are well-known in this collection, such as Malala Yousafzai, Sir Mo Farah, and Muhammad Ali, however there are also lesser-known figures who are equally important, such as Sultan Razia, an extraordinary female ruler, and Noor Inayat Khan, an Indian princess who became a British spy during World War Two. From female pirates to incredible scientists to brilliant mathematicians, “Amazing Muslims Who Changed the World” is nothing short of remarkable.

The author, Burhana Islam, was born in Bangladesh but raised in Newcastle, now living near Manchester. A storyteller who is passionate about sharing stories around heritage, identity, and faith, Burhana told TMV:

Amazing Muslims is a book that is close to my heart and it’s one that’s been written to celebrate the successes of our people across the ages. It’s an honour to be a part of a movement that aims to rediscover the gems of Muslim history and shed light once again on our influence on the world. Muslim history is undeniably rich and I’m thrilled that the team at Puffin and our wonderful illustrators across the globe have brought these stories back to life so beautifully.”

With each story accompanied by stunning illustrations, these stories will stay with you long after you finish reading it – the importance of these figures as well as the influence they had on the world cannot be understated, and this book captures the contributions of each of them beautifully.

TMV can also exclusively announce the six different illustrators who contributed to the book from around the world – visual artist Reya Ahmed from Calcutta, New York born illustrator Deema Alawa, Tamil American freelance illustrator Nabi H. Ali, illustrator and publication maker Saffa Khan, illustrator, designer and visual development artist Aaliya Jaleel and London-based illustrator Aghnia Mardiyah. Each illustrator brings their own unique creativity and beauty to the illustrations. Layered throughout the book with colourful and gorgeous nods to Islamic designs and artwork, each figure from the book is brought to life with these incredible illustrations.

Set to be published in hardback on July 9th 2020 by Puffin, this book is essential for any household – as a celebration of not only the incredible lives of Muslims who changed the world, but of the beauty of our shared humanity.
