A beautifully laid out and illustrated book for young children of all backgrounds…and it has a lovely message!
Yan is a poor farmer who wants to go to hajj. But every time he saves up enough money and sets out, he meets someone in his path who needs his help.
He empties his money purse while on his journey three times, first to help repair a burned-down school, then to rescue a hurt and exploited boy, and finally, to build a mosque. Each time, he simply goes back home and gets back to work to save more money. Eventually, he is old enough that he knows he won’t be able to save enough money again. But the good deeds he filled his life with have caught up with him, and the boy he rescued comes to take Yan to hajj. On this final journey, he sees the fruits of his labor: the school, the boy’s happy parents, and the mosque.

Along with 'getting thrush' 'falling asleep' and 'burping' I was gonna be very busy looking up three of these four symptoms! I had to get my priorities straight.… Continue reading The search for answers, begins…
The doctors at my GP surgery are have really let me down. Not just once or twice- but on several occasions. I feel very much let down by their lack of introspection and their lack of professionalism. When I spoke to them about my symptoms, instead of doing a thorough investigation, they chose to show… Continue reading Why I don’t trust my GP
For years I suffered from all these things and thought they were a part of my normal health. Never once did I think that they might be symptoms of a deeper more straightforward issue.
