It's the first day of Ramadan, and Hannah wants to be part of this important month in every way she can. But if she's too young to fast, how can she observe Ramadan? By saving the world, Dada Jaan tells her. Hannah learns that by showing her friends and neighbors kindness and generosity, she can make the world a better place. In a picture book full of warmth and heart, human rights activist and attorney Qasim Rashid tells a timely story about the observance of Ramadan and the power of good deeds.

Qasim Rashid is an author and human rights lawyer focused on women's rights, religious freedom, and children's advocacy. Qasim, his wife, Ayesha, and their three children reside in Virginia. Visit qasimrashid.com or find him on Twitter @QasimRashid.
