“I support Kisa Kids because it’s an amazing organization which has provided countless tools and resources for raising our children. Their captivating and beautifully illustrated books plant the seeds of love and understanding of the Ahl ul-Bayt. From the colorful board books that my toddler loves to sit and look at, to stories of our Prophets and Imams that my older son loves to read – they cover it all.”

Reem Nehme

“Kisa Kids has been such a great asset in my journey with teaching my children about Islam! I have lined up my daughter’s book shelf with Islamic books and she is most attracted to the book’s published by Kisa Kids! She loves reading all of their books from the Hakima and Hadi board book to The Name Chronicles graphic novel! I am so grateful to Kisa Kids for creating content for my children to be able to connect with our prophets and imams in a developmentally appropriate way. Alhamdullilah!”

Sponsor or Donate to Upcoming Publications and Dedicate a Book to Your Marḥūmīn!

Our work depends upon the support of our community, and each of our published materials has a large cost associated with the printing, shipping and distribution of books. We donate a large number of our books to public libraries, and centers/masjids all over the United States.

As a result, we are seeking donors willing to partake in project-based funding.

You have the option to make a general donation to a project, or sponsor a book for a larger amount to include the names of your marḥumīn on the inside cover.

Please note that the titles of these books may be subject to change.
