When Wings Expand by Mehded Maryam Sinclair

She wrapped her arms around me and said, “Nur! I know. I don’t want to go. But all I can do is keep trusting in Allah. Nur, I will always be with you! My love and advice will always be with you to guide you in the right direction.” She patted my heart. “They are forever sealed inside this little place.”

Writing on the pages of her journal, Nur, a teenage girl in Canada, charts the onset and advance of her mother’s cancer. Nur watches her mother’s body begin to shrink and her mood begin to darken. And when family and friends begin to encroach, Nur must face the prospect of her mother’s looming death. Nur bears the crushing loss and finds her adolescent life more demanding and complex. But with the legacy of her mother’s love, her family’s support, and the guidance of her faith, she manages to overcome the searing pain and use her newfound strength to bring joy to the lives of others, showing them that after death wings can expand.

Ibn Sina: A Concise Life by Edoardo Albert

Ibn Sina, who is referred to as Avicenna in Latin, was a true polymath. Born in the tenth Century, his passion for knowledge was unbound, and he made lasting contributions to medicine, maths and philosophy.

He served under princes and kings (and fled from them too), wrote books of philosophy that are still argued over today and set down medical treatments that continue in use. As such, Ibn Sina is often referred to as the most brilliant Muslim thinker in Islam’s Golden Age.

With illustrations, photographs, and maps, the rich and diverse world that produced Ibn Sina is vividly brought alive.
