"Weaving together beautiful imagery and vivid language, Mehded Maryam tells the life of the prophet Yusuf, peace upon him in THE BOWING OF THE STARS. Working within the reliable guidelines of widely-accepted Arabic Qur'anic interpretations, she brings to life a timeless tale of jealousy, patience, and mercy. Her telling highlights the morals and virtues of the story, inspiring love for Allah Mighty and Majestic and His prophet Yusuf, peace upon him, while entertaining children and adults alike. An entrancing performance like this is a unique treasure, a wonderful resource for teaching children about the prophets, developing their linguistic capabilities, and inspiring their love and devotion for Allah with vivid images that will nourish them from within."

Curriculum Theory and Development
”Quranic narratives mention the main details, and the rest are left out; left for the reader to imagine the events that might have transpired in-between the lines, an imagining that is aided by the context, common sense and the many subtle hints in the Quran. For one to fill in these gaps and contemplate on them is part of interacting with Quranic stories and at times is essential to full understanding of the lessons that are to be learnt.
I have checked this telling relying on five great works of Quranic interpretation. The details filled in from the very able imagination of the author completely accord with the spirit and soul of the story to help the listener, especially the child, appreciate the wonder and miracle of the surah. None of the details contradict any Islamic value and many can be found in the copious literature of Quranic exegesis.
I believe it is an excellent contribution to much-needed literature that invites the reader to truly absorb and enter the world of the Quran. The beautiful writing style of the author correspons nicely to the mysterious and compelling style of the Quranic original. And Allah alone give success.”

"We love Bowing of the Stars and have listened to it many times. But if you want to memorize the surah, just put in CD 2, press track 3 and you'll memorize it!"
Abdul-Majeed ibn Hamid, age 8, to classmate Ahmad ibn Ehab
"I noticed that Abdal Majeed would shut himself up in his room alone with the CD. Then I noticed that he was following the text in the mushaf as he listened to the recitation. He came and told me he'd nearly memorized it. A day later he came and told me he'd seen a dream: he'd recited the entire surah from memory for the Prophet, may Allah bless him and give him peace, who was with him, wearing a long green robe, and who embraced him when he finished."
Sadia Umm Abdal Majeed
"My four-year old son Dawoud and I were spellbound by this telling, dazzled by the grandeur of the story. For the first time I felt the beautiful reality of the Prophet Yusuf, the magnificence of his personality. The next day, Dawoud retold all of the part we had heard to his father. He still wants to listen again and again and his understanding grows each time."

"The work is unparalleled in the purity and clarity with which it expresses the emotions and events. One feels one is really there beholding the various happenings."
Sohail Hanif, SunniPath, Amman
"My children and I were enthralled. This account will stir your soul and stimulate your mind. I recommend it most sincerely to anyone, young or old, who loves to hear of the lives of our prophets and draw lessons from them."
