In the first few chapters of the book, Ebrahim brings the Islamic worldview to the foreground and establishes it as the main framework within which her study’s findings are to be interpreted. She also grounds her study in the historical and current socio-political and educational context for Muslims in South Africa. The next chapter describes Ebrahim’s qualitative approach, including her reflexive approach, positioning, recruitment, and data collection methods. In the following few chapters, Ebrahim provides descriptions and quotes from her observations and conversations with mothers, teachers, and managers at Muslim early childhood centres, interwoven with her analysis and discussion of themes. Finally, the last chapter consolidates the findings and considers implications for the education of young Muslim children.
