Of course I enjoyed the romance between Tamika and Sulayman and especially Aminah and Teddy this guy killed me ahaha he’s perfect Also: Zainab Aq rated it really liked it Nov 04, She writes about the interfaith struggles of Muslims and Christians and the intercultural, spiritual, and moral struggles of Muslims in America.
However, something I had trouble understanding was um divorce process.
Romance, Fiction Oh and for the people who have issues about reading books by Muslim authors: The book not only goes into the nature of polygamy but also explores the reactions and relationships of all the people involved.
I understand a little more why it shouldn’t be as tabooed as it is, but I understand that our reactions are also understandable.
Paperbackpages. The characters of Nusaybah and Alika were interesting to read about and good choices for Umm Zakiyyah to include. A continuation of the stories of the characters from the first two books – and this one deals with polygamy.
It’s such a compelling story that I think handles controversial issues well. I would never want to be in a shared relationship of course, but this book makes the readers understand that it is possible and that it is allowed and why it is in Islam.

I know a lot footwteps women may take a certain stance that is covered in this book, but I feel that the author did a wonderful job conveying all the characters and their mind set. Other books in the series. Considering the stance at the end of the book that seems to be the author’s I’m wondering if that was supposed to be Ismael’s thought process?
Race is honestly something I knew was an issue but never imagined it to be explored in fiction and I am satisfied with the result. There were so many racially diverse characters, which I have never seen before in any sort of literature.
