Junayd and his friends think madrasa is a waste of time, and older brother Saleem is fast becoming the black sheep of the family. That is, until the Imam of the mosque initiates an extra-curricular project outside his comfort zone. But can faith and football flourish side-by-side?

Review quote

"I particularly like this book because of its appeal to older children, especially boys - combining aspects of faith and secular life, the book tackles an everyday topic in our lives of whether we should stick things in boxes or make them work side-by-side." Buzz Ideazz

Our customer reviews

The football matches in this book are so well written I felt the same anxiety and passion as I do at an actual football match (I won't tell you how the book ends - i.e. if I finished feeling elated or disppointed). There are some great messages in there too but fundamentally it's an easy book to read and a real page turner - I read it in one go. Then my girlfriend picked it up and read it in one go too - and she doesn't even like football !! (but apparently this was better than me paying �?�£20 to take her to watch Bournemouth live! Not bad for �?�£6!)show more
