Friday May 03, 2013 11:04:20 PM, IANS

New Delhi: Indian author Saniyasnain Khan has bagged the Sharjah Children's Book Award for his book, 'The Story of Khadija'.

The award carries a cash prize of Emirati Dirham 15,000 (Rs.200,000).

To encourage authors and creative minds specialising in children's literature, the Sharjah Children's Reading Festival honours exceptional works in the field with a number of awards every year, said a statement.

"It has always been my dream to write books for children to help them discover the good values of Islam. The honour bestowed upon me strengthens my belief and will encourage me to continue working in this field," Khan said in a statement.

He also hosts a weekly TV programme, "Islam For Kids", on ETV Urdu in India.

'The Story of Khadija' is based on the life of Prophet Muhammad's wife.

The book has been translated into French, German, Turkish, Malay and Arabic.
