Clear and well-written, Islam And Its Festivals is an important addition to any Muslim family's library, especially for the benefit of children learning Islamic history and the basics of the faith. The author Istafiah Is'harc has travelled and lived widely: Calcutta, India, England, Russia, and Jakarta. While observing the Fast of Ramadhan with her Indonesian hosts, she felt strongly drawn to Islam from within, since when Islam has become an integral part of her life. She returned to London in 1972, to marry her Cape Malay husband, son of the late Sheik Muhammad Ghairuddin, a well-loved and highly respected imam in the Cape of South Africa. This brought her into contact with another rich Islamic culture and community which was reminiscent of what she had experienced in Jakarta.
