Faith turns to shame, confidence to doubt, and conviction to rebellion.

Faith turns to shame, confidence to doubt, and conviction to rebellion. Inaya was only nine years old when her mother converted to Islam and moved the family to Saudi Arabia. The author promises to revolutionize storytelling in this powerful story about three college students, one Christian and the others Muslim, who find themselves unlikely roommates at a small, private American university. After a fight with her roommate, Tamika is forced to move out of her room and finds herself living with Dee and Aminah, two Muslims on opposite ends of their commitment to. Islam.

In 2008, Umm Zakiyyah was awarded the Muslim Girls Unity Conference Distinguis Daughter of American converts to Islam, Umm Zakiyyah writes about the interfaith struggles of Muslims and Christians, and the intercultural, spiritual, and moral struggles of Muslims in America. In 2008, Umm Zakiyyah was awarded the Muslim Girls Unity Conference Distinguished Authors Award.

Now Muslim, Tamika must face her Christian mother who instilled in her a love for Christ and made church the heartbeat of the family. Torn between her dedication to Islam, the longing of her soul, and her mother, the longing of her heart-her "lifeline," Tamika struggles to find peace somewhere in between. But she finds that something must give.

This is the best of the Trilogy. It was interesting, heartfelt, reflective, and real. Through the eyes of Tamika we get a firsthand look at what it is like to convert to Islam, alone, and loose everything else, like family. And it tells of her getting back on her feet and facing her fears, and love. It is a story of forgiveness and self-reflection. You do not have to read the first book to understand what is going on. I don't recommend the last book at all. Everything that makes a novel interesting and inspiring, is in this book, and it is better written than the first. Totally recommend.

The first book was...,well...fantastic and it made me buy this second book of her's. The first thought that came to my mind was that, normally if the first book was fantastic then the second book would be sluggish and boring.
Little did I know. The second book was (is) so brilliant that it made me think of reading all the remaining books of Umm Zakiyya.
Some of you may be wondering why I seem to love this writer. The reason is, Umm Zakiyyah seems to know the fundamental troubles of the human soul and it is based on this that she tries to teach us how to overcome our daily spiritual troubles using imaginary characters and fabulous writing skills. In so doing she ends up giving us almost all necessary and practical steps on how to carefully navigate during our spiritual journey.
I am pleased and honored to have read some of her books.

This book cover Hadith! It really gives you details from a person who were born Muslim and a person that is a revert to Islam. It makes you self reflect on the soul and pleasing Allah subhana wa' ta'ala and not your family, friends etc. we will stand alone on the day of judgement

The beginning started out slow and for people that already know a lot about Islam it seemed like she over explained things. I like how she wrote it in a way that you don't have to have read the first book. Once I got into the story I couldn't put it down. The cute, but somewhat unrealistic love story drew me into the narrative. After finishing the book I am interested in reading the whole trilogy.
I wrote a review some time ago when the book "A Voice" first came out. I recently purchesed the e-book from here. I really, really enjoyed reading it, just as I renjoyed reading Umm Zakiyyah's first book, "If I Should Speak". I loved how she delved more into Suliman's and Ameerah's lives, as well as Tamika. From telling her mother about her conversion, to the aftermath and foward. I really hope Umm Zakiyyah does a follow up, and soon. I want to see what happens to my three favorte characters in teh future. So if anyone is wondering about this book, YES get it, enjoy it, then share it with a friend. And just like in the first novel, this one is good for dawah.
