PARADISE VALLEY - It was a trip to the bookstore and a classroom encounter that prompted the Hafiz family of Paradise Valley to write a book to educate Muslims and non-Muslims about Islam.

Dilara Hafiz, 42; her son, Imran, 15, a sophomore at Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix; and daughter Yasmine, 17, a senior at Xavier College Preparatory in Phoenix, are co-authors of The American Muslim Teenager's Handbook. It is a basic guide to Islam written from a teen perspective.
