This book is for the one who uses their mind. And thinks of the cosmos that Allah has designed.
This is not a science book. This is an invitation to think deeply…
In simple rhyming verses we go on a journey through the Cosmos. Take a look at the Earth and how it spins, bringing about day and night.
The moon illuminates the sky and brings about the ocean tides. Observe seasons as Earth makes it way around the Sun. Feel the warmth of the Sun shining down on us. Planets float around the Sun and meticulously keep their schedule. A look at the Milky Way tells us of our place in the larger scheme of things.
Did Allah create the Universe or did the Universe create itself? Could all of this have come about randomly? Observing the Cosmos is a fascinating, humbling and unifying experience. The journey through the cosmos fills us with awe and leaves us in wonder of Allah’s amazing artistry and intelligent design.

The Cosmos That Allah Has Designed was inspired by my love of cosmology. We have been commander to ponder over the creation of the heavens and the earth. The book takes us on a journey through the universe. We come across the earth, the moon, the sun, the stars, the planets, the milky way and the blackholes and observe the natural phenomena unfold before us. The children are naturally fascinated by the workings of our universe and this book is meant as a starting point on cosmology for young believers. The talking points at the back of the book set the guidelines for parents and teachers on how to approach the subject. And beautiful full-page illustrations help the children make the connection between the words and the pictures.
The idea was to have the word Cosmos and the word Allah in the same title. The conversation around spirituality and science is usually framed as a dichotomy. By writing this book the idea was to dispel the myth that God and Science are at odds with one another. Allah created the Cosmos and He created all the laws that govern it. It’s written in rhyming verses with simple language and a singular message: Allah is the One who created everything with a plan.
