Rafiq & Friends Makes Parenting Easier!

We all talk about wanting to make Ramadan special for our kids, but how can we possibly compete with all the elaborate non-Muslim holidays that our kids are missing out on? Rafiq & Friends is here to help! Rafiq & Friends is an ongoing edutainment series, starting with The Ramadan Date Palm which includes:

  • A hardcover Ramadan Date Palm book with hand illustrations and rhyming verses
  • 35 unique activity cards for each day of Ramadan, starting night before Ramadan and ending with 4 Eid al-Fitr activities
  • A special date plate that places your child in charge of serving dates every evening
  • A Rafiq plush toy that helps build an emotional bond with Muslim characters
  • Exclusive on-line interactive content including games, crafts, and Ramadan and Eid decorations.

So why support Rafiq & Friends today? Because supporting us is a building block towards the future of Muslim edutainment for our children! 

SHIPPING: InshAllah shipping will commence mid-May and be received prior to the start of Ramadan.

Ramadan Can Be Just As Festive as Christmas

Fatemeh Mashouf is a litigation attorney and Justin Mashouf is a four-time Emmy award winning filmmaker. So why have they jumped into this children's book adventure? Because they love Ramadan and want to help Muslim children see that       30 days of Ramadan can be just as festive as Christmas!

Quality Products For Our Children

Ever wonder why our children are captivated by mainstream books and cartoons but disinterested in "hijabi dolls" and singing camels? Children are attracted to high quality products and it's time we start making content that intrigues them! We know Rafiq & Friends meets our children's standards - the look on their faces when they open up the Ramadan Date Palm speaks for itself! 

And guess what? That's exactly how the Ummah can begin to share Ramadan with non-Muslim children as well! Rafiq & Friends is an opportunity for us to share our message with everyone - come join us!
