The Noor Kids developed by the Two Haward students in USA. they are two brother Amin Aaser, 22 and Mohammed Aaser, 25. Its aims is to develop the faith as they grow up in the western society.
As mentioned at noor kid wesite, We seek to build confidence in the religious identity of little Muslims
by engaging children with Islamic education, Muslim culture, and
American integration. Our professionally designed books feature Islamic
inspired stories and interactive activities.
How it started:
“She is due in four months,” my sister announced. I was going to be an
uncle! But that night, as I thought about my childhood, I realized a
bitter truth: I had been ashamed of my Muslim identity. Would my niece
be ashamed of her identity as well? Not if I could help it.
That night, I relived painful memories. I had loved when my mom
cheered during baseball games – but after 9/11, I became embarrassed of
her headscarf and asked her to stop attending. Fasting had taught me
gratitude – but, when friends asked about it, insecurity caused me to
hide the Islamic intentions behind my practice. Time and again, I felt
ashamed of my faith in front of my American peers.

I wish I had not been so embarrassed of my identity. “What about my
niece?” I thought to myself. I could not let her face the same
challenges that I experienced. I began surveying parents at my mosque to
see if they shared the concern. They did. Unanimously.
My brother and I found purpose: let’s make sure that our children
don’t experience the same challenges with their Muslim identity that we
did. Six months later, we garnered support from Harvard to publish our
first book. The rest, as they say, was history. (We’re a little older
now… the picture was from a couple of years ago. **Many years ago :-p)
