About this deal

For reasons I will explain, I am dividing my thoughts on this book into two parts: emotional and academic. I just don’t have enough of a break from school to spend all the time I want to with you in Doha, Hanna,” Zayneb said. Sajidah also has a picture book series co-authored with Team USA Olympic Medalist, Ibtihaj Muhammad, which starts with the New York Times bestselling THE PROUDEST BLUE, followed by THE KINDEST RED. Then a marvel occurs: Adam and Zayneb get the chance to spend Thanksgiving week on the Umrah, a pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina, in Saudi Arabia. There were also some things that happened to add conflict which don't even make sense for the culture they were in.

I loved how SK Ali had put such an amazing depth in such a simple way because these get highs and lows make us to want to be better and good humans and Muslims. His little sister knew that he and Zayneb had had their nikah done—she’d been there at the ceremony—but she sure acted like she didn’t understand what that meant. Although she was aware of his illness when she married him, Adam lives with constant guilt that he will hold her back if he appears too dependent on her. No short summaries, as you can read the blurb for that, but I do want to sincerely thank the author for writing a story that matters, that can transcend time and can be passed down to generations ahead.Yes he is focused on getting a job through these connections, but communicate that with your wife so she does not feel jealous?

the ending wrapped up so nicely, so heartwarmingly that i'm willing to forgive/ignore/look past whatever happened beforehand. Although being stuck in the hospital with my kid for 10 hours is never an ideal reading spot, it did give me uninterrupted time to get through this long-awaited sequel of Love from A to Z! Centering whiteness in non-white stories by making everyone who isn't white need explanation is so hurtful. And if you isolate it from other parts of your life, you will start thinking of things such as a story like this to be sacrilegious.Something I didn’t realise until a couple of days after finishing this book was how clearly I had been visualising and experiencing being present in Makkah and Madinah and performing Umrah as I read it. This story was written with such a profound love for our most holiest places of worship that I can't wait to perform my own pilgrimage.

I like Adam's character as he's caring and as for Zayneb, her character was a bit annoying, I get it that she wants to spend time with Adam but her reluctant behavior was off for me.But as they travel with the group of people and meet Sarina who happens to be someone Adam was interested in before Zayneb which makes things difficult.
