The book tells the story of the Prophet trip from Mecca to Medina during which he had to hide in a cave. The Prophet (PBUH) had hidden himself in the cave for three days while pagans were in search of him everywhere. Spiders covered the cave entrance with their web and pigeons laid eggs there. Whoever saw the scene would think that it was not passed by anyone for years and the cave looked empty of all creatures.
By focusing on the talks and efforts of the spider and the pigeons to rescue the best person of the world, the story attempts to distance itself from the religious structure, and in so doing, it has succeeded to illustrate a beautiful portrait of the Prophet (PBUH) for children and teenagers.
Sarah’s doll was sitting at the corner of the yard. No matter how
hard Sarah talked her out, she was not convinced. She was not
listening at all. So Sarah closed the doll’s eyes, but the doll did not
open her eyes again. Sarah was sad, and was in a deep grief
till night. When the moon was out in the sky, she thought that she
loved the moon. So her doll loved the sun. She wished that her doll
would open her eyes tomorrow morning. The next morning, the
doll opened her eyes, and Sarah was delighted. That was when
Sarah sat down next to her doll to watch the sun.
