***PLEASE NOTE: This lesson was written by a non-Muslim librarian, but I have done all I can to ensure the authenticity of the information. It is thoroughly-researched and includes source information in notes section of each slide. I also sent it to a sensitivity reader (who is Muslim) to check for accuracy, sensitivity, and thoroughness.
