This is the story of a school girl who has to write an essay about her hero – any guesses for who she chooses?!
“For a couple of days the same question continued puzzling Anum; “Who do I aspire to be like?” Then, whilst she was busy helping her mum with chores it suddenly came to her.

We Are Muslims 1 – WUDU’ (Lyrics)
|Vs. 1 This is the way we make wudu’,|
make wudu’, make wudu’.
This is the way we make wudu’ before we say our prayer.Vs. 2 This is the way we wash our hands,
wash our hands, wash our hands.
This is the way we wash our hands when we make our wudu’.
Vs. 3 This is the way we wash our mouth,
Vs. 4 This is the way we wash our nose,
Vs. 5 This is the way we wash our face,
Vs. 6 This is the way we wash our arms,
Vs. 7 This is the way we wash our head,
Vs. 8 This is the way we wash our feet,
Vs. 9 Now we are Muslims nice and clean,
Lyrics by Noor Saadeh
