I found myself so immersed to the spiritual journey of Ms. Backer, her book is kind of a living example that lead me to find out the God within ourselves. I felt ashamed of being Muslim but so left behind of seeking the true meaning of my faith. This book is truly an eye opener for to reactive my faith and living the life as Allah has created me to this world. Thank you Ms. Exquisite Memoir. Report this review. It also shows that having a small piece of open-mindedness in experiencing and getting to know other peoples cultures can also have benefits.
I really couldn't put this book down. It is actually rather sad in parts but extremely fascinating. I could really relate to the struggles she faced with the culture that many Muslims mistake for Islam. Her travels around the world really showed her lots of different ways Islam is interpreted. This book is not just for Muslims either, after my raving about it I already have a non Muslim friend who has ordered it. We don't tolerate bullying or harassment.

The decision by Claritas is final and binding. What a fabulous book! I am a revert to Islam of a similar age to her and grew up watching MTV and going to some of the concerts that she talks about in this book.
I was really interested in what led her to Islam and made her decide to leave such a completely different way of life. Customers who bought this product also bought:. Western Muslims. Tariq Ramadan. The Sirah of The Final Prophet. Sharif H. To God Through Money. Mohamed Geraldez. A Journey to God.
