    I was happy to see this Ramadan reading month. I was interested in Jewel… but having read the review it seems to give a wrong impression of Islam. The opposite of it’s intention,surely.The post is very nice.
    The Prophet Mohammad was not a letch or fiend for the ladies , in fact some of his wives gave up their days with him for the other wives. His greatest love, his first wife died before he took any others. He was human and so were the wives, so emotion happens. That’s were lessons are learned. I am disappointed, too, that The book on “honor killing” is group with Ramadan. Why? Islam does not promote this. Culture is not part of Islam. Islam is for everyone regardless of nation, color, language …
    I do appreciate the open dialoge,maybe a free book should be the Quran.
    Peace

      That was the point of putting the book on honour killings in the month – to write a review that highlights the fact that it is not something that is a real part of Islam, even though it is something that Westerners often associate with Muslim countries.

    Carina, thanks for letting me share my reviews with you! They are both really fascinating books and I think they would really interest a lot of readers, both those familiar with Islam, and those new to it.

    Hmm..I think I need to read the book myself before I give my opinion on the book. The review is good. I’ll add to my TBR pile!

    Nice that you included a picture! Great to see what you look like Heather.

    I definitely thought these books were more serious as well, so good to know that they are not! Romance isn’t so much my thing so I might avoid these for now. They sound interesting but I would definitely be looking for more in the story!

    Thank you for these reviews! I know that I wouldn’t have liked reading something that had such depictions of Muhammad, so the way I see it, you read it so I didn’t have to 😉
