Our Story

Welcome to Ruqaya's Bookshelf! My name is Asmaa Hussein (that's me on the right!), founder of this small but wholesome publishing company based in Canada. Since 2015, our mission has been to publish bright, fun, and engaging Islamic children’s books to add to your home and school libraries.


All our books feature Muslim characters and protagonists, because we believe representation matters! Diversity in children’s literature contributes to a solid character education – and seeing someone who looks like you in a storybook is exciting!

After servitude to God, my daughter is my greatest motivation. As a widowed mother to a rambunctious and beautiful girl, I strive to show her an example of dedication, determination, and excellence.

I named this publishing company after her – Ruqaya’s Bookshelf – because she loves books more than anything.

So pull up a chair, enjoy our books, thumb through our articles, and join our fun-filled adventure!
