Mother of the Believers, book review – III

Tag: History of Religions,World NewsMona @ 7:05 pm

Salaam,
my readers who keep coming back here!

After reading the book I should give some kind of final recommendation from my side.

It is marvelous reading, skillfully written bringing Islamic history close to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. I appreciate the amount the time and research the author has invested in it.

Only if there were not the one thing I have been writing in my previous posts and am quite unhappy with.

After having some serious concern about Lady Aisha’s age at her marriage since it is not known, all speculation is based on Hadith only, I think that the positive aspect of information and positive image it gives about Islam weighs more and therefore I recommend it for interested readers.

But readers should always keep in mind that it is a fiction novel after all and not everything what the vivid imagination of Mr. Pasha (which I envy – to be honest) brought to life here is necessary word by word true.

I could not find any historical errors since for most of the events exist surviving documents around which the author has woven this historical novel.

Ramadan Greetings to all!
