    Would like to know if interested in being a guest on my talk show “Islamic View”on channel 16 MTN

  2. Alhamdulillah sisters making contact that the way to go.

    Ohh you read The Sealed Nectar?
    Out of curiosity, what were your thoughts on it? Both as a read and as a biography of the Prophet (pbuh)

    Hope you don’t mind me asking 🙂


  4. Assalamu Allaikum, I am interested in Reading the Tears of the Desert, I just read the summary. I want to know whats really happening there in the eyes of a civilian.

  5. Walaikum salaam,

    MK I am ashamed to admit that I did not finish the book. I think I’ll try to read it later but right now it’s just not happening for me. For some reason I can’t seem to concentrate on it…I’m weird like that sometimes. 😉

  6. @souvenirsandscars, I still am working on it. As much as I enjoy reading it’s difficult for me to read historical texts. I still think The Sealed Nectar this is one of the better seerahs I’ve read though.

  7. Sister, if your interested I know a site that has the The Sealed Nectar ebook. I believe its for free. Maybe you can post it on your blog. I don’t have one so might as well recommend it to others. I believe its for free. Click on my initials and you’ll find it at the bottom of the page.

  8. Salam sister! 🙂 I came across your blog when i was searching for pictures. Interesting entries. I was wondering if you’ve ever read Don’t Be Sad, La Tahzan. Really good book 🙂

  9. Sister, I was actually wondering whether your edition of The Sealed Nectar was the one from Darussalam. That’s the one I’m reading and honestly I find the English in the translation to be a little stilted. If you’ve found one that reads better I’d like to know about it.

    Thanks in advance.

  10. The Sealed Nectar is by far the best biography of the Prophet (s) but it is meant to be read in an academic style. If you want something that is written more for layman reading, I would highly recommend Martin Ling’s Biography of the Prophet (s). It is very easy to read.

    Haha, I think I am going to be commenting on all of your pages. 🙂

    I also would recommend a bunch of other books, like In the Early Hours by Khurram Murad – fantastic read! And the English is amazing. 🙂

    • Verbage, In the Early Hours is an amazing book. I think I’ve read it at least 3 times now. I’ll have to look up Martin Ling’s biography. Thanks!

  11. Sister try Said Rahman Buti Fiqh of Seerah the great shafi scholar fron Syria.This book is constructed very well.

  12. Salaam Alaikum
    @ Warada..i have read “don’t be sad” and I always go back to reading it.
    It touches the me on such a real level…it is a must read.

  13. My salams sister I two great books to share with you.The first is Son of Mountains the life as a kurd and terror suspect by Yassin Aref and Rounded up Artificial terroists and muslim entrapment after 9/11 by Shamshad Ahmad,Ph.d both excellent books focusing on frameing up muslims and a biography.Yassin Aref along with Mohammed Hossain both were framed up by the FBI.Imam Yassin Aref is a kurdish national and a brillant brother who our govt. decided to target.He is doing 15 yrs with his co defendant Mohammed Husain.

  14. Just looking at old comments Dr.Said Rahman Buti fiqh -seerah is a beautiful read.It is constructed beautiful and there are lessons for reader to draw from.Defintenly I rate this a better seerah than the seal nectar.The seal nectar is a great book but fiqh seerah just put together so well and it flows.Also the Muhammad the Man and Prophet by Adil Salahi is another great work that flows.Highly recommended also.

    • Salaamu Alaykum,
      I read Adil Salahi’s book on prophet Muhammad (pbuh) at least 5 times, it’s that good. Definately a great read.

  15. Asalaamu Alaikum

    Just finished Butterfly mosque for my online book club on my blog. Could you please leave a comment?


    Just recently heard the author of the Jim Crow book talking on the radio the other day too.

    Our book club will be reading The Size of a Mustard Seed next, insha Allah.
