#RamadanReadathon 2019 – Non Fiction Books Recommendation

Ramadan is fast approaching and that means it’s also time for the Ramadan Readathon! I love taking part and Nadia does such a wonderful job hosting it every year!

For this years readathon there is also a bingo card and there will be several posts over the course of the week sharing book recommendations for each of the prompts! So keep an eye out on the Ramadan Readathons social media page to read them all and help you choose what books to read this month!

Ramadan Readathon Bingo

I am going to share with you some books that I think are perfect reads for Ramadan!

Some are books that help us with our spirituality and connecting with Allah and others are books that give us insight into the lives of Muslims and their achievements.

1 Reclaim You Heart by Yasmin Mogahed – I cannot explain to you how much I love this book. It’s a book that you can read again and again and still benefit from it. I also highly recommend her other book, Love and Happiness.

2 Revive Your Heart by Nouman Ali Khan – another wonderful book that covers so many issues we deal with in today’s society

3 Prayers of the Pious by Omar Suleiman – this book released recently and it has 30 duas (supplications) to help us and it’s perfect for you to learn one everyday in Ramadan

4 Muhammad: How He Can Make You Extraordinary by Hesham Al-Awadi – this book is really unique in the sense that it is not only a biography of the Prophet (pbuh) but how we can learn from the way he lived and incorporate it into our lives

5 The Productive Muslim by Mohammad Faris – this book navigates all aspects of our lives and helps us to better ourselves and develop good habits and break bad ones.

6 It’s Not About The Burqa edited by Mariam Khan – this book is so needed and I absolutely loved the essays in this book.

7 Lost Islamic History by Firas Al-Khateeb – this book covers a lot of Islamic history and is a really interesting read

8 When the Moon Split by Saifur Rahman Mubarakpuri – a biography of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and one of my favourites

9 Women in the Quran by Asma Lambert – it’s really great reading about these inspirational women that are spoken about in the Quran

10 Al-Muhaddithaat: The Women Scholars in Islam by Akram Nadwi – such a wonderful book filled with some amazing women throughout history

So these are some of my favourite books I highly recommend reading them and if you want any other recommendations for any other type of book please do ask! I have A LOT more books I could recommend!

  1. This is great. Thank you so much for the recommendations. I’m not muslim but i’ve always feel some deep respect for this religion and i want to participate in this readathon but being from southamerica it’s hard to find any books like this.
