Why do Muslims celebrate - perfect for a non-specialist

Needed this to replace a lesson from a scheme which was lacking in information and as my knowledge isn’t great in this area, this supplemented with a video and a book provided a good lesson.

We're so pleased to hear that our resources were useful to you, Sam! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review :-)
