Guhn Filtering Exclude erotica Include mainstream erotica Include all erotica. At the heart of the novel is the story of Foltsteps, a forty-seven-year-old biracial son of a White mother and Black father, and Sarah, a forty-nine-year-old White daughter of the racist South. I enjoyed how Kate, an outsider and non Muslims was more open to it than any of the Muslims. Refresh and try again.

You will enjoy it. Read it. The best thing about this entire thing was that it was completely untypical fiction. There were so many racially diverse characters, which I have never seen before in any sort of literature. And the fact that Umm Zakiyya chooses topics that are interesting to Muslims as well not just a typical story about a Muslim in high school who has the same problems as everyone else but not really because Muslim.
My favorite of the three. Everyone seemed like an ideal Muslim, which tinged the story and made it a bit unrealistic. The complexity of the story was easy to follow, I think even for non Muslims to understand. However, something I had trouble understanding was the divorce process. Okay and the whole issue of polygamy Haha okay this is a hard opinion to write about. 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 could see why people have issues about that. The book not only goes into the nature of polygamy but also explores the reactions and relationships of all the people involved. I enjoyed how Kate, an outsider and non Muslims was more open to it than any of the Muslims. 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. I could see inadvertent? I love that Umm Zakiyyah allowed us glimpses of all the families, which really helped us to imagine an established Muslim society and how everything affected many families not just one.
