"Where is my Imam?" is a children's book about the twelfth Imam, called Imam Mahdi. Shia Musilms believe that the twelfth Imam is in occultation (ghayba) and that he will return to bring peace and justice to the world.

Although he is in occulation, and we cannot see him, Shia Muslims believe that Imam Mahdi still benefits us, just as the sun is benefecial, even when it is behind a cloud.

When Maysum and Summaya arrive home from Madressa one Sunday afternoon, they have one wish:

to find their Imam and follow him. Along with their friends, they search for him in every street corner. Where will their quest lead them?

Follow the search for the 12th Imam (as) as the children begin to understand his role in our lives and how we can serve him and strive to be his true followers.

100% of net profit will be donated to charity in Shelina's name.

About the Author

Shelina Kermalli dedicated her life to children's education; from her degree in Elementary Education, to her volunteering in the local Madaaris and several other non-profit agencies, to homeschooling her own 3 children, Kamilah, Hasan, and Zahra.

Although Shelina's lifetime was short, her impact was profound. She left this world in 2016 at the age of 32 during the blessed month of Ramadhan and the nights of Qadr, and is fondly remembered by family, community, and friends alike as a "pure soul" who lived her life with grace and beauty, and was always ready to assist others. One of her oft-remembered pieces of advice to her own children was to always begin the day with a "salaam" to our living Imam (as) in order to build that connection with him and prepare for his return.

We pray that Allah (swt) showers His blessings upon Shelina, and covers her with His mercy, peace, generosity, and kindness.
