Jan 02, Sabrina rated it really liked it Shelves: Race is honestly something I knew was an issue but never imagined it to be explored in fiction and I am satisfied with the result.
I think anyone can figure that out. My opinion of polygyny changed since high school when I first learned about the subject and even before reading Footsteps, but I think this book is good for those adults who have feelings for or against it just because Footsteps provides different perspectives on the subject. It talks alot about the struggles that women go through to understand this and it also has a character that is the second wife of a man who is friends with Sarah.
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.
If I Should Speak 3 books. Raheemah rated it really liked it Oct 24, Open Preview See a Problem? I know a lot of women may take a certain stance that is covered in this book, but I feel that the author did a wonderful job conveying all the characters and their mind set. It’s a fiction book.
Considering the stance at the end of the book that seems to be the author’s I’m wondering if that was zakoyyah to be Ismael’s thought process? However, something I had trouble understanding was the divorce process.
Even if it could never be mended completely. I could see why people have issues about that. Forming the thread that weaves the characters’ lives together is Alika Mitchell, a strikingly beautiful daughter of a mulatto ummm and half-Nigerian father, who is conducting a multicultural research for her master’s, and who inspires in the reader questions that one is left to ponder long after the book is closed.

I felt uncomfortable at times, since it felt like the author was advocating polygamy for everyone, but by the end it’s clear that her stance is the same as mine: Married for twenty-six years and having accepted Islam on a journey they took together, the Ali pair has what every partnership hopes to achieve.
Footsteps focuses on Aminah and Sulayman’s parents and while I don’t like perfect characters, reading about Sarah and Ismael’s thoughts and feelings about polygyny was frustrating at times. Footsteps, the third in a trilogy to follow Umm Zakiyyah’s A Voice, is a story that stands on its own in both impact and inspiration. Thank you Umm Zakiyyahs. The general overview of this book is that it follows Sarah and her husband Ishmael as he looks into finding himself another wife in the eyes of a late 20s new muslim, masha’allah.

The journey began in If I Should Speak with Tamika Douglass’s path of spiritual growth and direction, treaded at the hands of her college roommates, Aminah and Dee, two Muslims on opposite ends of their strength in Islam.
