ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ms. Shehab, is currently a Speech Therapist Aide at a private school in Melbourne, Victoria. She was born inEgypt and migrated to Australia in 1969
with her parents and two younger brothers. She grew up in the suburb of Vermont South in Melbourne, Victoria. She attended East Doncaster High and went on to study Business Management at RMIT.
Her passion for writing, pushed her to pursue a diploma in Professional Children’s Writing with The Australian College of Journalism. The college, impressed with one of her pieces, requested to use it as a school resource and thereby went on to get copyright the piece. This gave her the necessary confidence to embark upon her writing career.
The birth of her first child started a soul searching quest of deciphering religion from culture. The more she learned, the more passionate she became with the religion. It was at this point, and with the arrival of her 4th child, that she decided to leave the work force and focus solely on her children and family. She began to home-school her children in order to instil Islamic knowledge, morals, values and principles, alongside a secular education. Currently, seven of her eight children have memorized the Qur’aan in its entirety-Alhamdulillaah.
Her personal experiences as a Muslim, brought up in a secular society and witnessing first-hand how these societies have a profound impact on children, contributed strongly for the authorship of her books. These concepts, although very basic, are an attempt to give Muslim children, all over the world, an awareness that there is a CREATOR, SUSTAINER and CHERISHER looking after everything and everyone. Ms. Shehab endeavours to remind them that their lives have a meaningful purpose and their rich Islamic heritage is something to be proud of. This, she believes, is the foundation in establishing a strong sense of Muslim identity and belonging in children regardless of their cultural background.
She would like to give a special “thank you” to her children for their recommendations and being her biggest fans and critics, in writing these books, as well as to her family and friends for their support.
