Book Review: Believe

“Believe” is a concise self-development book published by Prolance publishing.

The author “A.E” who chose to remain anonymous compiled the do’s and don’ts from the 114 chapters of the Holy Quran for personal use, but then thought to publish a book for others to benefit from it.

The book is divided into four chapters, extracting the do’s and don’ts of worship, character, giving & taking, relationships, and eating & dressing, along with notebook pages for making your own notes.

This book is ideal for everyone, but specially children and teenagers for learning the etiquettes of living mentioned in the Holy Quran as it is precise and easily understandable. I would totally recommend this book to be added to your reading list.

Blogged by Zara!

What would you do if the most handsome guy of your university asks for your hand in marriage? Will you feel elated and say yes? Or will you hold back due to your doubts of his piousness? Ajlal opted for the latter choice. Zaafir’s intelligence or looks weren’t sufficient to impress her as the young Muslimah sought someone who took religion seriously.

Book Review: Unveiled

“Unveiled” is an exceptionally beautiful poetry book, written by “Rumki Chowdhury” and published by Djarabi Kitabs Publishing.

This book highlights the sensitive matter of hijab and the mentality related to it in a very engaging and detailed way. The contents are divided into four parts, i.e. Mind, Body, Soul and My Hijab Story.

The first three parts being poetry followed by a personal hijab story of the author.

I really enjoyed reading this book and what actually impressed me are the comparisons that are being used to justify the hijabis.

This book can really help in increasing the awareness that hijabs do not limit a woman from performing activities or achieving anything she wants. Totally recommended!
