It’s a fiction book. At the heart of the novel is the story of Ismael, a forty-seven-year-old biracial son of a White mother and Black father, and Sarah, a forty-nine-year-old White daughter of the racist South.

I enjoyed how Kate, an outsider and non Muslims was more open to it than any of the Muslims. I think it should have been explained a foptsteps more because I didn’t really know the ruling about 1 months or 3 months and I had no idea what was going on or if they really were divorced zzkiyyah what?

Umm Zakiyyah

April rated it it was amazing Sep 02, I know you are really curious now, so all I will say is that a lot of the book covers an adult topic. It’s such a compelling story that I think handles controversial issues well.

See 1 question about Footsteps…. The characters of Nusaybah and Alika were interesting to read about and good choices for Umm Zakiyyah to include.

In the face of his wife’s discovery, Ismael is torn between the love and security of his marriage, and the natural inclinations any man must temper in a world full of choices, and devastating consequences. View all 4 comments. To view it, click here. Apr 29, Ammena rated it zakiyyqh it.

There are a few surprises and Im glad Ive read it but I would definately not add it to the list of my best books: This time I was able to be totally absorbed in the story without being distracted by anything clunky. If you don’t plan on reading this book anytime in the next few years for example, because you are too young ; please DO NOT continue to read this review. May 12, Audrey rated it it was amazing.

I love that Umm Zakiyyah allowed us glimpses of all the families, which really helped us to imagine an established Muslim society and how everything affected many families not just one. I could see why people have issues about that. Zendre rated it it was amazing Apr 05, This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. My favorite of the three. I’m still iffy about the fact that men’s nature is polygamous and woman’s nature is jealous Ismael and Sarah have what zakiyywh couple hopes to achieve.

Mifrah rated it it was amazing May 08, Haha okay this is a hard opinion to write about. I would never want to be in a shared relationship of course, but this book makes the readers understand that it is possible and that footssteps is allowed and why it is in Islam.

It was a compelling read, although at times I felt like I was being hit over the head with a ‘women are jealous by nature, men are polygamous by nature’ stick. It talks alot about the struggles that women zakyyah through to understand this and it also has a character that is the second wife of a man who is friends with Sarah.

This book was a little emotional, definitely interesting, and compared to the first two books in the trilogy, I enjoyed reading Footsteps zakiyyh because this was the first time I read it and not rereading it like the other two.

The complexity of the story was easy to follow, I think even for non Muslims to understand. Umm Zakiyyah also writes under her birth name Ruby Moore. Honestly if there wasn’t any Pakistani character, I might not have payed as much footxteps to it as I did when Zaid’s cultural views came into place.
