About Us

Our Story

Salams! I’m Randa, the Founding Director of Rummana Publishing. Growing up here in the U.S as a Syrian-American Muslim in rural Pennsylvania wasn’t easy. But my mom managed to make everything Islam- including holidays- fun and memorable. My favorite example is the tradition she started of hiding our Eid gifts around the house. Every Eid morning, my siblings and I would have a blast hunting down our Eid treasures. Naturally, I don’t remember every Eid gift I have ever found. However, I can vividly recollect the feelings of excitement and love I had every Eid morning whilst searching for my Mom’s endless ‘Eid surprises.’

Fast forward a few decades later, and I met my husband Maz. Today, we are the two Arab-American, fun-loving parents that are struggling to find fun ways to make Islam fun an relatable to our first-born son, Zayd. We searched far and wide for Islamic and/or Arabic material that was both fun AND educational. Unfortunately, we quickly discovered that it was like searching for a needle in a haystack. Since we couldn’t find the solution, Maz and I took it upon ourselves to create it – through our textbooks and stories that are entertaining, yet educational for Zayd and other children and adults of all ages and levels to love, enjoy, and cherish. We hope you enjoy our products as much as we loved making them.

Our Mission

Our goal is to create warm and fuzzy feelings towards Islamic and/or Arabic education. We create material that promotes a natural bond between learner, content, and parent/teacher. In other words, we create books that are more than stories, but the gateway to more fun and memorable learning experiences.

We aspire to…

Educate

We want to make learning the Arabic language fun, aspiring to create high quality Arabic language materials and resources that’re richly illustrated, content-based, communicative, and oozing with captivating topics.

Empower

We want to empower young Muslims by creating stories with characters they can relate to, representing the core value of Islam. We wish to also motivate and empower children to ask answers, learning more about themselves, Islam, and the world around them.

Inspire

We are inspiring more children to get creative and write stories these budding authors can be proud of. We believe in the power of the pencil and the written word.

Our Vision

Through our books and services, we hope to be a bridge that connects the east and west, bringing the best of both worlds to the other.
