MV: As a child growing up, I used to love reading different novels which then inspired me to write my own stories. In fact, at the age of only 9, I wrote a book named “Tom Oder” (5 book series) about a boy learning about Magic and attending a school for Wizards and Witches…yes I was influenced by Harry Potter. But the bottom line was, it began my love for writing! My love for writing inspired me to compete in the Short Fiction category in MIST (Muslim Inter-Scholastic Tournament) NY, last year. I spent quite some time in writing my short story based on the topic, “Loyalty in Islam” but it was worth it and alhumdollilah I won 1st place!
(Note: The year before I won 2nd place for submitting The Muslim Voice in Web Design and that year The MV won again but as 3rd place alhumdollilah!).
With that being said, I decided to finally release my short Islamic story that won, “The Crown of Faith” to the general public! The Crown of Faith as I’ve said before is my official story that I have written. In order to incorporate it with The Muslim Voice I’ve decided to make it the first official book released by the “TheMuslimVoice.com”.
The book is free to read (just no plagiarizing please), so I request that all of you please give me some good criticism, that’ll help me know what to improve on for next time insh’Allah :).
You can read the book by clicking on the book’s cover bellow. And yes…I was the illustrator as well :).
Note: This is the official, “Ultimate Edition” meaning it includes many cool special extras at the end including the alternative and the original ending, author interview, about the author, character’s future, inspiration and Hadith related to the story so be sure to check it out!
So now I present to you, “The Crown of Faith”:
